A meta-analysis assessing the association between insomnia symptoms and incidence or death from cardiovascular disease, stroke, or a combination of events found that difficulty initiating sleep, difficulty maintaining sleep, and non-restorative sleep were significantly associated with higher risks of cardiovascular and stroke events.
Striking electron microscope pictures from inside the brains of mice suggest what happens in our own brain every day: our synapses grow strong and large during the stimulation of daytime, then shrink by nearly 20% while we sleep, creating room for more growth and learning the next day. The 4-year research project published today in Science offers a direct visual proof of the “synaptic homeostasis hypothesis.”
