Head Position During Sleep Has Potential Implications for Neurodegenerative Disease19.2.2019 17:00:00 | Tiedote
Could sleeping on your back increase your brain's risk of developing neurodegenerative disease? That possibility is revealed in a new study published in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease. "We compared the in-home sleep patterns of patients with memory impairment resulting from neurodegenerative diseases to a large group of elderly with normal cognition," stated Daniel J. Levendowski, the study's first author and President of Advanced Brain Monitoring. "Sleeping more than 2 hours with one's head lying face upward (i.e., supine) was a significant nocturnal marker that characterized those with memory impairment, after controlling for factors such as age, sex, snoring, obstructive sleep apnea, and movements during the night." These results corroborate in humans a finding observed in rats by researchers at Stony Brook University and published in the Journal of Neuroscience. Using dynamic contrast MRI, they found that the clearance of neurotoxic proteins from the brain by glymphatic transpo
