To the brain, sleep deprivation is 'like drinking too much'

Sleeplessness slows down our brains, which affects how we perceive stimuli. This may put us in dangerous situations.

Post date: Jan 23, 2020

New research confirms that lack of proper sleep has a severe impact on how the brain functions, with potentially dangerous consequences arising in daily life. Lately, many studies have focused on how sleep affects the ways in which our bodies function, and especially on how it impacts the brain.

Studies recently covered by Medical News Today have suggested that how much — and how well — we sleep may be key in visual learning, memory consolidation, and necessary unlearning.

New research from the David Geffen School of Medicine at the University of Los Angeles, California (UCLA) and Tel Aviv University in Israel now confirms that sleep-deprived people experience memory lapses and may deal with distorted visual perception; the communication between neurons is temporarily impaired.
