Scientists have long suspected that sleeping was crucial to the learning and memory-building process, but a new study provides important evidence on how sleep impacts the brain, indicating our minds are hard at work while our bodies rest.
The research, published recently in the journal Science, shows that very specific structural changes happen in the brain after a period of learning. In essence, our brains practice what they’ve just learned while we are in various stages of a night’s sleep.
Using mice, the researchers discovered that during sleep, the brain grows new connections between cells in the motor cortex. These brain cells essentially awaken as we enter slow-wave sleep, when brain waves slow down and rapid eye movement and dreaming stop.
Sound sleep keep your fresh and healthy. It improve memory than its very useful study.
