    β-Amyloid accumulation in the human brain after one night of sleep deprivation

    β-Amyloid accumulation in the human brain after one night of sleep deprivation

    (complete study in link)

    http://www.pnas.org/content/early/2018/03/29/1721694115

    In summary, this study documents an effect of one-night SD on ABB in the hippocampus, thus providing preliminary evidence that sleep, among other factors, could influence Aβ clearance in the human brain. Our results highlight the relevance of good sleep hygiene for proper brain function and as a potential target for prevention of AD (31, 55).

    Thanks Yoly ...

    I know many people often have trouble getting a good nights sleep and indeed a regular sleep pattern.
    We sometimes do not realise how this can help our health ...

    Interesting to read that "our results highlight the relevance of good sleep hygiene for proper brain function"

    Thanks again

    All the best Jan

    Long ago, and not realising it was a historical thing, I started to have "two sleeps". I would lie down for a while after my meal - sort of the equivalent of a siesta for someone who doesn't eat lunch - then get up and do stuff (well mainly read and write stuff) and go back to bed for a second longer sleep later.

    I'll let you know if this works when I have discovered who I am and what I am doing here.

    Sleep can be the chicken and egg problem, what come first. Sleep patterns vary with age and most neurological conditions affect sleep. So maybe there is a two way street one affect the other or at least one make it worse. Taking strong medications for sleep make it worse so there are no easy solutions. Food, light, darkness and many drugs have also effect on sleep. For sure the circadian cycle is important for good health, but not always an easy hack.

    Yes you're right. I once had temazepam: literally only once as I slept like a log but when I awoke I was half asleep all morning and had double vision. NOT pleasant. Strangely I found Mogadon, which supposedly has a longer half life, to be much more useful, but I only used them occasionally, back in my low fat days.

    Magnesium taken in the evening may also be useful, if you are deficient which is not uncommon.
