A study in "Neurology", the journal of the American Academy of Neurology, shows that sleep, or rather lack of it, can shrink areas of the brain. Whether this is cause or effect remains to be seen.
Not only can poor sleeping habits make you tired and miserable the following day, but it can affect the aging process, both mentally and physically.
Sleep quality is generally considered a key anti-aging essential, allowing the brain and body to perform tasks to help optimize its performance. In a study to examine the link between sleep difficulties, such as having trouble falling asleep or staying asleep at night, and brain volume, a total of 35% of the participants met the criteria for poor sleep quality.
The study found that sleep difficulties were linked with a more rapid decline in brain volume in widespread brain regions, including within frontal, temporal and parietal areas. The results were more pronounced in people over 60 years old.
Measures of cortical atrophy were widely correlated with sleep quality.
