Not Enough or Too Much Sleep are Associated with Lower Cognition | Alzheimer's Reading Room

Not Enough or Too Much Sleep are Associated with Lower Cognition | Alzheimer's Reading Room | Perfecting the Science of Sleep | Scoop.it
The findings support the notion that changes in sleep duration over time may contribute to cognitive decline and early Alzheimer's.

Growing evidence suggests that sleep duration that is shorter or longer than the recommended seven hours per day may increase risk of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes.

Elizabeth Devore, ScD, of Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston, and colleagues examined data for more than 15,000 participants in the Nurses' Health Study.

Participants who slept 5 hours per day or less had lower average cognition than those who slept 7 hours per day.
Those who slept 9 hours per day or more also had lower average cognition than those who slept 7 hours per day.
Too little or too much sleep was cognitively equivalent to aging by 2 years.

Study identifies how muscles are paralyzed during sleep

Study identifies how muscles are paralyzed during sleep | Perfecting the Science of Sleep | Scoop.it

Two powerful brain chemical systems (GABA and glycin) work together to paralyze skeletal muscles during rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, according to new research in the July 11 issue of The Journal of Neuroscience. The finding may help scientists better understand and treat sleep disorders, including narcolepsy, tooth grinding, and REM sleep behavior disorder.

 

During REM sleep — the deep sleep where most recalled dreams occur — your eyes continue to move but the rest of the body’s muscles are stopped, potentially to prevent injury. In a series of experiments, University of Toronto neuroscientists Patricia L. Brooks and John H. Peever, PhD, found that the neurotransmitters gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and glycine caused REM sleep paralysis in rats by “switching off” the specialized cells in the brain that allow muscles to be active. This finding reversed earlier beliefs that glycine was a lone inhibitor of these motor neurons.

 

“The study’s findings are relevant to anyone who has ever watched a sleeping pet twitch, gotten kicked by a bed partner, or has known someone with the sleep disorder narcolepsy,
