The brain is surprisingly active while we sleep. Learned experiences are ordered and processed. Sometimes we come up with solutions to the problems of the previous day in our slumber.
Stress influences us in many ways. It disturbs our sleep, affects our mood and can make us sick. But more seriously it also seems to damage our brain, according to a new study.
The UN health agency's report advises "what is good for our heart, is also good for our brain." Regular exercise and a good diet are part of the plan for a public health response to dementia.
Mobile devices are often blamed for damaging our brains. So can apps help scientists research memory loss?
Some people claim they only need four to five hours of sleep a night. After that, these super-humans say, they wake up nice and refreshed, ready for the challenges of a new day! From a health standpoint, that's bogus.
