The Less You Sleep, The Faster Your Brain Ages

A study at Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School Singapore (Duke-NUS) has found that the less a person sleeps, the faster his brain ages. A good amount of sleep is necessary for normal brain and body function, nevertheless we let our busy lives deprive us of the optimum amount of sleep we need. The study also shows how it contributes to cognitive decline, including dementia.
