Chronic sleep deprivation is a public health epidemic and has led scientists to study why you sleep and how it affects the brain. Sleep apnea affects the way you breathe while you are sleeping. Current research has established a relationship between sleep apnea and dementia: people who have trouble sleeping have enhanced amyloid deposits in their brain, a hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease.
