• Scientists have shown that in both people and in mice sleep loss contributes to the growth of brain plaques characteristic of Alzheimer's, and increases the risk of dementia
  • The new research in mice demonstrates that eliminating this specific protein made mice sleep for longer periods of time and strongly slowed the production of brain plaque
  • Scientists believe that by slowing or stopping the buildup of plaque in the brain they could slow or stop the disease
