A Single Night of Bad Sleep May Increase Proteins of Alzheimer’s Disease
New research, executed by the scientists from the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, found that people who experienced just one night of bad sleep also known as sleep deprivation showed an immediate increase in levels of beta-amyloid, a protein that can form “plaques” that play a key role in Alzheimer’s disease.
For the study, the researchers studied 20 healthy adults aged between 22 and 72. After just one night of sleep deprivation, the scientists noticed that beta-amyloid levels have increased in the right hippocampus and thalamus of the subjects’ brains.
Authors conclude in their study: “Our results highlight the relevance of good sleep hygiene for proper brain function and as a potential target for prevention of Alzheimer’s disease.”
