PressTV – Poor sleep pattern may shrink brain: Study

 

 

European researchers have identified an association between poor sleep patterns like insomnia and the size of the brain.

Researchers examined some 147 adults between the ages of 20 and 84 via two series of MRI scans.

The first scan was taken before patients completed a questionnaire pertaining to their sleep habits, while the second scan was done around three and half years later.

The investigation indicated that 35% of those who experienced the criteria for poor sleep health had a more rapid decline in brain volume during the study than those who slept well.

Researchers also found that the results of poor sleep patterns were even more significant in participants over the age of 60.
