Despite forgetting, a strange way to preserve memories and important information

“Why do we sleep?” A question that has been preoccupying researchers for decades.. Although the answer to the question may be “we sleep to rest” and charge the body’s battery, American researchers have reached another conclusion as well, which is that we “sleep to forget.”

According to Deutsche Welle, the Voice of Germany website, many believe that the benefit of sleep lies in restoring the body’s energy and “charging the battery” of the human being only.. But a study conducted by researchers at an American university came to the conclusion that sleep has another benefit that is no less important than restoring “Charging the battery”, which is forgetting!

neural synapse

According to the study, conducted by biologists at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and reported by the New York Times, “humans and animals sleep to forget.” When a person performs any thought or movement activity, according to the study, new synapses are built in the brain. Its function is to associate information and store memories.

The researchers found that these synapses partially break during sleep; This contributes to the loss of memories and unimportant information that a person no longer needs, and this is known as the “synaptic balance hypothesis”.

In an experiment on the brains of mice, scientists demonstrated that the synapses contract during sleep, indicating that this may cause a decrease in electrical waves from the brain during sleep.

forgetfulness protein

For his part, researcher at Johns Hopkins University in the United States, Graham Dearing, concluded: He indicated that a specific protein in the synapses is responsible for forgetting information during sleep, which is the neurotransmitter protein “Homer1A”, indicating that sleep helps UGN build this protein.

This protein leads, according to the researcher, to forget what is not important. In an experiment with mice, mice in which the synthesis of this protein was inhibited remained fearful and anxious; Because she could not forget what she suffered, according to the study. On the other hand, the mice that slept were curious about the new situations.

But researchers agree that not all synapses are changed during sleep, affecting only about a fifth, so memories and important information are preserved even during sleep.
