Bad Sleep Ages Your Brain

FRESNO, Calif. (KMPH) -

Ever notice after a bad night’s sleep that your brain just isn’t as sharp in the morning? A new study shows if you have a restless night - or sleep too much - your brain is affected, and, in fact, ages.

Researchers at Brigham and Women's Hospital found women who get fewer than five hours, or more than nine hours of sleep per night had worse memory than those who slept the recommended seven hours a day.

The study found too little or too much sleep aged the brain an additional two years.
