Good Night's Sleep Can Cause Morning Blood Concentrations. 'Good Night's Sleep' Essential For Brain Health

Washington: Researchers have found that one night of sleep depravity can cause morning blood concentrations of molecules NSE and S-100B to increase in healthy young men.

Good Night's Sleep Can Cause Morning Blood Concentrations These molecules are typically found in the brain. Thus, their rise in blood after sleep loss may indicate that a lack of snoozing might be conducive to a loss of brain tissue.

The study involved fifteen normal-weight men, and in one condition they were sleep-deprived for one night, while in the other condition they slept for approximately 8 hours.

Sleep researcher Christian Benedict at the Department of Neuroscience, Uppsala University, who lead the study, said that they observed that a night of total sleep loss was followed by increased blood concentrations of NSE and S-100B.

Christian said that these molecules typically rise in blood under conditions of brain damage, asserting that their results indicate that a lack of sleep may promote neurodegenerative processes.
