A new study reveals a role of the BNST GABAergic system in sleep/wakefulness control, especially in shifting animals' behavioral states from NREM sleep to wakefulness. It also provides insight into the pathophysiology of insomnia and the role of orexin in arousal regulation.
An international team of researchers has found, for the first time, 7 risk genes for insomnia. This is an important step toward the unraveling of the biological mechanisms that cause insomnia. The findings are published today in Nature Genetics.
For the first time, researchers have demonstrated the causal context of why deep sleep is important to the learning efficiency of the human brain. They have developed a new, non-invasive method for modulating deep sleep in humans in a targeted region of the brain.
