Researchers observed an inverse relationship between decreased slow-wave sleep and more tau protein in older adults who were either cognitively normal or very mildly impaired.
These findings, published in Science Translational Medicine, indicate that poor-quality sleep may be a red flag before or in the earliest stages of symptomatic Alzheimer's disease, according to researchers.
“Sleep and Alzheimer's disease are currently thought to have a two-way or bidirectional relationship: There is evidence to suggest that sleep disturbances increase the risk of developing Alzheimer's
