A new study has uncovered the large-scale brain patterns and networks in the brain which control sleep, providing knowledge which in the future may can in the long term help people who experience problems sleeping.An international study headed by researchers from Aarhus University has for the first time uncovered the large-scale brain patterns and networks in the brain which control sleep, providing knowledge which in the future may can in the long term help the many Danes large proportion of people who experience problems sleeping. one-third of our life asleep and our sleep has fascinated researchers for many years.S4: Duality is an instance of contrast between two aspects of something.
"This provides a new and potentially revolutionary understanding of brain activity during sleep which can in turn lead to new forms of treatment of the sleep problems that affect far too many people," explains postdoc at the Center for Music in the Brain at Aarhus University, Angus Stevner, who is behind the study. "Our results can change the way in which we understand sleep and, not least, the way we look at sleep disorders such as insomnia.
We hope to be able to utilise this new and detailed categorisation of sleep to identify changes in the brain activity of people suffering from certain with unexplained sleep disorders, such as dyssomnia or insomnia, which we currently cannot explain" explains states Angus Stevner.
S3: Macbeth says to Lady Macbeth “Sleep that knits up the raveled sleeve of care, The death of each day’s life, sore labor’s bath, Balm of hurt minds,” (Act 2 scene 2 37-40) S4: When Shakespeare mentions “sleep” he refers to it as a “balm of hurt minds” or a “sleeve of care”. S5: When Macbeth “murders sleep” he is unable to sleep and control his guilt.
S6: When Shakespeare refers to sleep as “ the death of each day’s life” he is writing about sleep and how closely related sleep and death are.
Research from the Centrer for Music in the Brain at Aarhus University and the University of Oxford has now revealed, in unprecedented detail, the patterns and networks used by the brain during sleep.
