The authors of this study were scientists from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. They stated that there is a relationship between a bad night’s sleep and an increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease in the future.

“We found that people who often suffer from poor sleep quality and daytime sleepiness, have in the cerebrospinal fluid, which is present in the spine and brain, more biological characteristics indicating susceptibility to Alzheimer’s disease. Biological markers include the presence of amyloid protein, Tau protein, and the damage to brain cells and high levels of inflammation in the brain,” the researchers reported.
