Sleep Builds Brain Cells

University of Wisconsin scientists have discovered that when the body is at rest, the brain goes to work to repair and regenerate certain brain cells.

University of Wisconsin researchers have discovered yet another reason why sleep is so important.

They’ve learned that’s when the brain goes to work to repair and regenerate certain brain cells.

Sleeping activates the production of cells that eventually make myelin, the stuff that insulates the brain’s wiring. Without it, the brain can’t fire impulses.

The sleep study leading to the finding was performed on mice, some of whom were denied slumber.

Analysis showed that myelin-making cell production doubled when the mice were sleeping.

Among the sleep-deprived mice, scient...
