Sleep’s secret repair and other functions

Filed under: Sleep — admin @ 12:15 am

I read this article back on 4/15/2012. It is from Scientific American Mind, May/June issue “Sleep’s secret repairs” “Slumber may loosen the links that undergird knowledge, restoring the brain daily to a vibrant, flexible state” by Jason Castro.

“Emerging evidence suggests that sleep also serves as a reset button, loosening connections throughout the brain to put this organ back in a state in which learning can take place.”

I thought of my two children when I read this piece.
