Hosted by

Wisdom may come with age, but so does the loss of sleep — and the loss of memory. New research shows that poor sleep may be the culprit and that treatment may be on the way. Researchers believe that deep sleep can be restored, along with memory itself. Matthew Walker is professor of psychology and neuroscience at the University of California, Berkeley. His study was published yesterday in the journal Nature Neuroscience.
