Can't Fall Asleep? Cool Your Brain First

Jun 17, 2011
The recent research from the Sleep Neuroimaging Research Program at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine shows that people, who suffer from insomnia, have increased brain metabolism in the frontal cortex, which makes it difficult for them to fall or stay asleep.

The reasearchers say that the best way to treat insomnia is to cool those areas of the brain. During the study, the 12 participants that had insomnia were asked to wear special cooling caps with cool water and 12 healthy participants for the control group. The patients slept several nights in a sleep lab with no cap or with a cap at different temperatures.

As a result, those who slept with the cap with the coolest temperature reported to have better sleep.

The findings of the study also showed that for insomnia patents with cooling caps it took about 13 minutes to fall asleep, while 89 percent of the time they were actually sleeping. Also the cooling cap promoted deep restorative sleep, which means that it actually works for insomnia.
While the cooling cap is not yet available on the market, the scientists plan to bring it to the market soon.

Η διάφορα με το εργαλείο της Microsoft είναι ότι δρα στιγμιαία και όποτε το θελήσεις κι έτσι δεν χρειάζεται να πας συνέχεια και να αλλάζεις τις ρυθμίσεις. "You don't want the machine to go to sleep for now, but are othsewire happy with the default sleep behavior. Unfortunately, the easiest way I know of to temporarily suppress sleeping is to go to Control Panel, open the Power Options page, change the power plan settings, commit them - and then remember to undo everything once the task is finished. It's not hard; but it's kind of annoying...So here's a better way:"Το παραπάνω αποτελεί απόσπασμα από τη σελίδα του εργαλείου που εξηγεί αυτή τη διαφορά.
