Brain Injury TBI – More Sleep Helps Recovery – MN Attorney


Traumatic brain injury is a major cause of death and disability worldwide. While brain cells at the site of impact are damaged immediately, many surrounding cells can perish in the hours and days after the trauma. Studies suggest that widespread axonal injury contributes to many long-lasting problems. This includes learning, memory, and movement commonly associated with head injuries. Molecular waste products also build up in the brain after head injury.

However, recent studies indicate the brain clears out this molecular buildup during the slow-wave stage of sleep. Some doctors therefore recommend extra sleep after a head injury accident. (Not immediately, but once the symptoms have stabilized). For more information regarding a study examining sleep for a TBI, click here.
