Brain Waves Control The Impact Of Noise On Sleep

During sleep, our perception of the environment decreases. However the extent to which the human brain responds to surrounding noises during sleep remains unclear. In a study published this week in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), researchers from University of Liège (Belgium) used brain imaging to study responses to sounds during sleep.

EEG Study Shows That Sleep Spindles During Light Sleep Boosts The Brain’s Learning Capacity

Scientists have long puzzled over the many hours we spend in light, dreamless slumber. But a new study from the University of California, Berkeley, suggests we are busy recharging our brain’s learning capacity during this traditionally undervalued phase of sleep, which can take up half the night. The results of the study were published in […]
