Is this a perfect excuse to keep hitting the snooze button?
A recent study has found that sleep deprivation causes mice to lose 25% of certain brain cells. The mice were exposed to the same kinds of sleep patterns that many of us experience in modern life. If humans are affected the same way, sleeping only 4-5 hours a night may have serious, irreversible consequences.
The researchers think it may be possible to create a drug to prevent brain cells from being lost. Would you take a drug to safeguard your brain cells?
