Study Shows How the Brain Can Trigger a Deep Sleep

A study aimed at exploring and outlining how sedatives work within the brain’s neural pathways has lead to the discovery of better remedies for managing and treating insomnia. The researchers discovered that by chemically switching on one area of the brain, they can trigger deep sleep in a patient.

The specific types of sedatives that the researchers worked with switched on neurons in an area called the preoptic hypothalamus. The neurons are then responsible for the shutting down of areas of the brain that remain inactive during deep sleep. This is the process used by the brain to initiate deep recovery sleep.
