By now, you know that you should never sleep with your eyes closed or closed for too long, and that you need to take breaks every now and then.
You also know that if you have chronic pain or sleep apnea, the chances are good that you’re having issues with sleep quality and quality of sleep.
In a new study published in PLOS ONE, researchers at University College London, in collaboration with the National Institutes of Health, have uncovered five ways to improve your sleep.
The research team focused on the brain and sleep in the brain.
They looked at how different sleep types affect how well the brain processes information.
This research also involved studying brain activity when people were using eye-tracking devices.
The researchers found that people who were able to get enough sleep with eye-hacking technology had greater levels of connectivity between brain regions involved in learning, memory, and executive functions.
In other words, the brain is getting more connected to the rest of the body.
Another finding was that when people got more sleep with the use of eye-lasers, they experienced more intense stimulation in areas of the brain involved in visual processing, including the frontal lobes and the occipital lobes.
“Our findings show that our ability to sleep can be improved by using eye technology,” said co-author Dr. Michael E. Smith, a senior lecturer in neuroscience at the University of Oxford.
The study also found that when researchers asked people to imagine a video game, the people who used eye-blinking technology had higher levels of creativity and increased their ability to perform math and problem-solving tasks.
Other findings include that people with higher levels (and thus better quality of) sleep experienced greater levels and more intense arousal during sleep.
Researchers hope their findings will be useful for patients, parents, caregivers, and others in regards to improving sleep.
They also hope that these findings will help researchers understand the connections between sleep and cognitive health.
