People with insomnia have greater brain activity in regions associated with conscious awareness during NREM sleep, researchers report.
A new study reports on a link between lack of restorative sleep and an accumulation of amyloid beta.
Sleep spindles assist with the processing of relevant memories during sleep and help boost memory consolidation, researchers report.
Using EEG to measure REM sleep allowed scientists to distinguish dreaming from wakefulness.
A simple actimeter device is helping researchers better understand sleep duration and quality in humans.
Sleep may be regulated by inflammasome NLRP3, researchers report.
Researchers at Johns Hopkins have identified specific neurons in the zona incerta that appear to help promote sleep. The discovery could help develop new treatments for insomnia and other sleep disorders.
A new study sheds additional light on how the brain consolidates memory during sleep. Researchers report rapid fluctuations in gamma band activity in the hippocampus during nREM sleep helps facilitate memory reactivation.
Natural, restorative sleep can help stave off mental and physical decline as we age.
