BRAIN INJURY RECOVERY IMPROVED BY EXTRA SLEEP
Traumatic brain injury is a major cause of death and disability worldwide. While brain cells at the site of impact are damaged immediately, many more cells can perish in the hours and days after the trauma as damaged axons succumb to injury. Studies suggest that widespread axonal injury contributes to many of the long-lasting problems with learning, memory, and movement commonly associated with head injuries. Molecular waste products also build up in the brain after head injury. However, there have been some recent studies that indicate the brain clears out this molecular buildup during the slow-wave stage of sleep where brain activity synchronizes into high-amplitude waves. Some doctors therefore have recommended extra sleep after a head injury accident (not immediately, but once the symptoms have stabilized).
