The Scary Connection Between Insomnia and Early Aging

In the 21st-century, it has almost become a badge of honor to say that you sleep very little. We have come to admire people who party or work throughout the night. At the same time, we’re obsessed about youthfulness and looking young. Unfortunately, the two issues do not always go hand in hand, if ever. A recent study shows that sleepless nights, whether intentional or insomnia-driven, have some terrible health consequences that are far from admirable or honorable. And it happens on cellular level. In a recent edition of the journal Biological Psychiatry, Prof Judith E. Carroll from the...

Weird Brain Activity Cause of Sleeplessness

Many insomniacs complain that they cannot switch their thinking and brain off during the night, and that this is what keeps them awake. A new study now shows why they’re actually right. But it’s not in the way of a psychological problem where you can’t control your worries or concern. It’s actually the hard wiring of your brain. A research team from the University of Pittsburgh has just published an article in the journal Sleep that explains a key difference between the physical brain function of insomniacs and good sleepers. They recruited 44 insomniacs and 40 good sleepers to enable them to measure and compare the activity levels of different parts of their brains during wakefulness and deep sleep (non-REM sleep.) Most parts of the brains of the good sleepers turned on during wakefulness and off during deep sleep. In contrast, some regions of the insomniacs’ brains remained active at a moderate level during both wakefulness and sleep. The specific brain regions were those responsible for thinking, self-awareness, and emotions. These regions actually operated at higher than normal levels during deep sleep, and at lower than normal levels during wakefulness. The researchers couldn’t quite decide whether their findings meant these regions were insufficiently active during the day, or overactive during the night, or possibly both. Regardless, the study does prove that these regions of the brains of insomniacs are...
