Deep sleep prevents neurodegenerative disease, crucial for brain health

Updated:1 month, 2 weeks ago

New Delhi, Jan 22 (ANI): A new study lead by researchers from Northwestern University highlights the importance of getting a deep sleep for good brain health. The study published in the journal Science Advances shows that by examining fruit flies' brain activity and behaviour, the researchers found that deep sleep has an ancient, restorative power to clear waste from the brain. This waste potentially includes toxic proteins that may lead to neurodegenerative disease.
