Study Finds Chronic Insomnia Impairs Cognitive Function

in insomnia •  3 months ago 

@mellowrain found this helpful article about insomnia from, the Psychiatric & Behavioral Health Learning Network. It's a great run down on how insomnia may impair cognitive functions.

"Middle-age and older adults with chronic insomnia disorder are more likely to experience cognitive deficits, compared with people with insomnia symptoms alone or no sleep problems, according to a study published online in the journal Sleep.

Although previous studies have suggested links between insomnia and cognitive problems, results have been inconsistent, some study populations have been small, or people with chronic insomnia disorder have been lumped with those with insomnia symptoms and other contributing issues, such as chronic pain or anxiety, said researcher Thien Thanh Dang-Vu, MD, PhD, of Concordia University in Montreal, Canada."
