Sweet Dreams

Sleep Like A Fruit Fly

I do not need to study fruit flies, rats or any other living being, I know sleep is good for my brain. Interestingly they something about the use of energy here, that using the brain consumes more energy than when it relaxes in sleep. They argue in this study, that a reduced level of energy is what the poor brain needs.

I've always wonder why they say that the brain is the fastest burner of energy. Because according to all the thinking I do I should be anorectic by now, by last decade, no by last century. Come to think of it; by last millenium I should have been barely bones.
