A new study from Uppsala University, Sweden, shows that a certain region of the brain responsible for feelings of appetite in humans, is more activated in response to images of food after one night's sleep deprivation than after one night quite normal and prolonged sleep. Poor sleep habits, thus affect the risk of people associated with overweight in the long term. The results of this study were clarified in the latest issue of the journal of clinical endocrinology and metabolism".
Researchers Christian Benedict and Helgi Sheath, the staff of the Department of neuroscience at Uppsala University, showed in my previous article, akatora was published in the American journal of clinical nutrition, that for one night a complete loss of sleep in young healthy men gain weight, which deliver only the expenditure of energy in the morning. This study also showed that the test participants had an increased level of hunger, and this indicates that the acute shortage of human sleep can affect eating people.
In the new study, Christian Benedict, together with Samantha Brooks, Helgi Sheath and Elna-Marie Larsson from Uppsala University and leading medical professionals from other European countries considered (and continue to systematically review) which areas of the brain involved in the sensation of appetite, are influenced by acute loss of sleep. Through use of magnetic imaging (MRI), the researchers studied the brains of 12 men with a mean of normal weight when they were considered kartinki, on which was depicted a variety of food. The researchers compared the obtained results after a night long of normal sleep with results obtained from the subjects after one night without sleep.
Christian Benedict explains:
"After a night full loss of sleep, these men showed a fairly high level of activation in a brain area involved in the immediate desire to eat. Taking into account that lack of sleep is a serious problem in modern society, and the results of our study can explain why a bad habit of sleep can affect the risk of people who gain weight in the long term. Therefore, it is possible, it is important that people slept about seven to eight hours every night to support a stable and healthy body weight".
