Scientists: sleep does not help to forget the troubles

Troubles associated with traumatic events are forgotten after waking. The rest, on the contrary, causes the brain to process the emotions experienced. The memories stronger deposited in memory. Scientists advise people with this disorder some time not to sleep. About it writes The Daily Mail.

Experts from Oxford University showed volunteers a movie with heavy scenes. Some people then continued to stay awake, others went to sleep. The volunteers, who continued after the film to do their normal activities, the number and intensity of unpleasant memories of the film turned out to be less.

Doctors frequently prescribe the pills for people with traumatic disorder. Scientists believe this is not the right tactic. Much more important is consultation with a psychologist. In some cases, the person better not sleep a certain time, to survive the "bad" emotions.
