Women with Sleep Apnoea Have Higher Degree of Brain Damage Than Men, Study Shows
Do men differ from women in terms of health risks? Certainly. A recent study showed that women with sleep apnoea have a higher degree of brain damage than men. In this new study, the researchers looked at patients who were diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnoea at the UCLA Sleep Laboratory. They compared the nerve fibers in these patients' brains, known as white matter, to fibers of individuals without sleep problems and focused on unearthing the difference in brain damage between men and women with sleep apnoea. The study found that women were impacted in the cingulum bundle and the anterior cingulate cortex, areas in the front of the brain involved in decision-making and mood regulation. The women with sleep apnoea also showed higher levels of depression and anxiety symptoms.
