WHY SLEEP DEPRIVATION EASES DEPRESSION

Scientists have found that sleep deprivation is an efficient way to treat depression, and the results of a new experiment prove why it works. Previous research found that a certain cell, called an astrocyte, regulates the release of brain chemicals that make us sleepy. During the day astrocytes continually release neurotransmitters that eventually build up to make us tired. The new study investigated whether this process is what causes the antidepressent effects of sleep deprivation. To do this they monitored mice with depressive-like symptoms, and gave them doses of a compound that would make them feel sleep deprived. Though the mice slept normally, they showed a rapid improvement in their mood and behavior after 12 hours, and the effect lasted for 48 hours. Researchers say they hope this finding will lead to new drug development that would allow depressed people to reap the benefits of the brain chemicals without actually being sleep deprived. (Scientific American) This is opposite of my desires…I am depressed when I don’t get enough sleep…and that is FAR too often! ---
