Loss of Sleep Can Really Have Bad Effects on the Brain
by Bryant Stowe
slows down normal functionality of certain areas in the brain - these are the areas
that were compensated for by the other areas on the brain.

Language processing and comprehension is performed in the brains temporal lobe
and was activated during the verbal learning exams of the well rested subjects while
is was not in the subjects who had not slept well. The parietal section of the brain
was conversely not activated in the well rested subjects while it was over activated in
the sleepy group. Although overall memory was down in the sleepy subjects it is this
part of the brain, the parietal lobe that retains memory. What this shows is that while
this part of the brain was not necessary to perform the given tasks it was called into
action by the students without much sleep.

Other studies suggest sleep deprivation can be linked to serious condition like heart
failure and obesity. Even mental illness and psychosis can be caused or inflamed with
a lack of sleep. Studies show with an MRI machine that lack of proper sleep will
prevent the individual from putting an emotional event into the proper context.
Meaning you are more prone to over react to smaller issues. The basic principle here
is that the sensors in your brain reasonable to put your mind at ease in emotional
situations are not rested and become overworked simply meaning that they literally
have a shorter fuse.

While mental issues are of primary concern for those who are in adulthood, there are
other major problems in younger people who suffer from sleep deprivation. Growth
and health restoration are two things not functioning normally in individuals who
suffer from lack of sleep. There are several things you can do if you think you may
be sleep deprived. First make sure you sleep in an area that you are comfortable in.
Whether you need to change the sheets or change from a flat to an adjustable beds,
it doesn't matter just make sure you are comfortable. Second, make sure you are
on a sleep schedule that it rarely interrupted. If this can be done and you still have
issues consider seeking out medical advice from a Doctor.

Sleep deprivation can really affect the
brains functionality in a terrible and
irreversible way. A study by the
University of California San Diego
school of medicine performed a study
using magnetic resonance to follow
brain activity of sleep depraved
individuals performing simple verbal
tests. The study discovered increased
amounts of activity in the brains
frontal cortex in subject who had not
slept as well. What ended up
happening was the brain over
compensation in certain areas to
make up for the individuals lack of
sleep, a condition that temporarily
