What Sleep Deprivation Does To You (Study)

By  

Are you sleep deprived? Sleep deprivation affects 47 million adults in the United States. Our bodies give us plenty of signals when we’re tired. But some of us are so used to being sleep deprived that we remain oblivious to how impaired we really are.

A new study shows that sleep deprivation can actually fire up certain brain regions that affect our emotional processing, boosting feelings of anxiety.

“It’s been hard to tease out whether sleep loss is simply a byproduct of anxiety, or whether sleep disruption causes anxiety,” study researcher Andrea Goldstein, a doctoral student in neuroscience at the university, said in a statement. “This study helps us understand that causal relationship more clearly.”
