Sleep Boosts Production of Brain Support Cells

mindSleep has many benefits and many studies have been undertaken to find out the role of sleep in the human body. A recent animal study published in the Journal of Neuroscience has indicated that sleep stimulates the reproduction of myelin, the insulating material on nerve cells.

Chiara Cirelli MD, PhD, and researchers at the University of Wisconsin measured the activity of genes in oligodendrocytes, the myelin making cells, obtained from mice. The study was aimed at identify the difference in the activity of the genes both during asleep and when awake. The genes involved in the formation of myelin were activated during sleep. It is therefore concluded that lack of sleep may lead to damage to the brain.
