Restful sleep after learning may boost your memory, points out study! The research shows that when you take a snooze after learning, it aids the growth of dendritic spines. The dendritic spines connect to other brain cells and help in relaying information at the points where the brain cells meet. This improves your memory and brain health. The study conducted on mice showed interesting results. Two sets of mice were trained on spinning rods after which one set of mice slept for 7 hours and the other set stayed awake for 7 hours. The dendritic spine growth was much higher in the set of mice that slept in comparison to the other set. So just snooze your way to a healthy brain!
