A study in mice suggests lack of sleep may play a role in the development of Alzheimer’s disease, U.S. researchers said on Thursday. The findings, reported in the journal Science, are some of the first to link sleep with the development of Alzheimer’s, the most common form of dementia. Researchers at Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis studied levels of amyloid beta — a protein that accumulates in the brain of people with Alzheimer’s — in mice genetically engineered to have a version of Alzheimer’s disease. – From Reuters
