Is disrupted sleep an early sign of Alzheimer's disease?

January 30, 2018View for printing

New research from the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis has found strong evidence that disruptions in sleep cycles could be an early, preclinical sign of Alzheimer's disease. A further companion study in mice found that circadian rhythm disruptions could directly accelerate the accumulation of amyloid plaques in the brain - the build-up of which are strongly linked to Alzheimer's disease and memory loss.
