Constantly feel sleepy during the day? It is an occasion guard. In the US, researchers from Johns Hopkins University came to the conclusion that daytime sleepiness is more often inherent in the people, which the brain shows the symptoms associated with neurodegenerative disorders.
The people who really want to sleep during the day, the brain is almost three times the amount deposited beta-amyloid. Beta-amyloid is a peptide that performs important physiological functions, including protecting the brain from potential pathogens. But in some cases the molecule beta-amyloid begin to contact each other and form a toxic to the neurons of the cluster. The occurrence of such formations in the brain evaluated by science as the beginning of Alzheimer’s disease.
Experts at Johns Hopkins University published on the University’s website, the data is 16-year-old investigation involving 123 persons as the subjects. According to these data, participants who were typical of daytime sleepiness, were more at risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease in connection with the deposition of beta-amyloid structures in the brain.
The observed regularity according to the researchers, it is another proof that “sleep disorders and the development of Alzheimer’s disease”. Earlier research allowed experts to conclude that hazardous process of accumulation in the brain, “metabolic waste”, including beta-amyloid, linked the lack of sleep. We have also identified a link between insomnia and an increase in the number of beta-amyloid in the tissue fluid of the brain in healthy people, and the relationship between chronic sleep deprivation and dementia in the elderly.
