According to researchers, increasing levels of Bmal1 in the skeletal muscles of mice makes the animals resistant to insomnia and sleep deprivation. The findings could provide a new treatment target for sleep disorders.
By mixing up cellular taste sensors in mice, HHMI Investigator Charles Zuker and colleagues show how the taste system continually remakes itself.
We know that sleep helps us integrate knowledge acquired during the day. But can we learn new things while sleeping? By exposing subjects to repeated auditory stimuli, a team of researchers has just demonstrated that the brain is capable of learning such sound patterns during certain sleep stages—though they may be forgotten during deep sleep. Led by the Laboratoire de Sciences Cognitives et Psycholinguistique (CNRS / ENS / EHESS) in collaboration with the Laboratoire des Systèmes Perceptifs (CNRS / ENS) and the Centre du Sommeil et de la Vigilance (AP-HP / Paris Descartes University) at Hôtel Dieu Hospital, this study is the subject of an article published in Nature Communications on August 8, 2017.
It’s true they’re good for short-term memory, but “shooter” games could also cause atrophy in the hippocampus, a new UdeM study finds.
Patients with sleep disorders could be studied nonintrusively at home using wireless signals.
Multi-week regimen may be an effective complement to traditional therapy, multiple studies suggest.
