The act of breathing works like a clock in sleep, research says
Munich: Scientists have discovered a strong link between the process of breathing and sleep, saying that the process of breathing is an important clock in the sleeping brain.
On the one hand, the process of sleep is not just to be immobile, but to keep the brain active, and the process of breathing plays a very important role in regulating them.
Sleep does not shut the mind, it just keeps the important matters and memories of the day ‘safe’. It involves communication between parts of the brain and information, but this process was not fully understood.
Now, Professor Anton and his colleagues at Ludwig Maximilian University, Germany, have said that the fluctuations in respiration reach a different kind of pacemaker and reach different parts of the brain and coordinate them. The process of respiration automates the entire nervous system, acting like a permanent and regular system.
For this, scientists have observed the activity of thousands of neurons in the laboratory by implanting electrons in the brains of mice. It was found that fluctuations in respiration play a very important role in keeping them regular. That is, the major brain parts, such as the hippocampus, medial prefrontal and visual cortex, are all affected by respiration.
Thus it was found that breathing has an effect on the limbic circuit of the brain. Because the epithelium is the center of memory and the breath has an effect on it. Thus we can say that the coordination of the respiratory process also plays an important role in memory and brain communication.
