    Default How Waste Gets Washed Out of Our Brain During Sleep

    Maria Cohurt, Ph.D

    A new study illustrates that the brain's cerebrospinal fluid pulses during sleep, and that these motions are closely tied with brain wave activity and blood flow. It may confirm the hypothesis that CSF flow and slow-wave activity both help flush toxic, memory-impairing proteins from the brain.

    Islander, thanks for fixing the link above. I followed your instructions, but still failed. Let's face it....I'm just a doofus when it comes to posting. Sorry, and thanks again.

    Not at all! It was some kind of technical malfunction. If it ever happens again, to anyone, here's what to do:
    Look at the row of icons above. (On an OP I think there are 3 rows, and this would be the middle one). Left to right, you see a pair of font size choices... then the bold/italic/underline options... the font menu... font size...text color choices... and your smiley selector.
    NOW look at the remaining five. The first two are planet earth. The left = link (see the chain?); the next one (with the red x) = not a link. In this situation, we had a link that was not behaving like a link. What to do? Highlight it, then click on the LINK and presto chango, it becomes a link.
    If you should forget what's what, hover your mouse over each icon and it will tell you what it's for.

    I tell computer beginners (yes, there still are some!) to just go around randomly clicking on stuff. You can't break anything, but that's how you learn what stuff does. Nobody was born knowing all this.
