HOW LACK OF SLEEP IMPACTS OUR BRAIN AND BODY
Do you know the effects of sleep deprivation on our brain and body? And that there’s a link between lack of sleep and Alzheimer’s disease? Too little sleep also affects the reproductive system, our ageing process and our immune system. Furthermore, sleep deprivation is linked to the risk of developing numerous cancers and also impacts the cardiovascular system. Did you know that 20 hours of wakefulness impairs the human mental capacity to a deficiency level comparable with someone who is legally drunk behind the wheel? Since our sleeping pattern can have such an important impact on our health and wellbeing, to be aware of some of these facts is important.
In the attached video one of the world’s leading sleep experts, Prof. Matthew Walker, Professor of Neuroscience and Psychology at the University of California, Berkeley, explains the urgency of getting proper sleep in a very layman friendly language.
Prof. Matthew Walker is also the author of the bestseller “Why We Sleep” and the co-author of the book “The Neuroscience of Sleep”, the first comprehensive collection of articles on the neuroscience of sleep.
