All-Nighters Pound Your Brain

Study reveals that staying up means concussion-like symptoms.

And now for a word on sleep, from the pioneers of death metal.

A Swedish study found that the day after subjects stayed up all night, blood levels of certain proteins linked with brain injuries like concussions were 20% higher. That’s not to say you’ll experience a concussion following a session of midnight-oil burning (unless of course it involves banging your head to said death metal), but, according to lead researcher Christian Benedict, Ph.D., the study suggests that “getting a regular good night’s sleep may be a useful means for supporting brain health in humans.” Time to lay those energy drinks to rest.
