Determined that everything was now in a Swiss sleep laboratory. The universities of Geneva and Lausanne, the scientists have explored eight of ten volunteers and a variety of mice, the effects of moving sleep. The results of the two studies just published in the journal “Current Biology”. And, even if this relatively small number of study participants is not yet the whole extent of the rocking to sleep benefits can be determined, for example, whether people with severe sleep disorders benefit from the systematic brain confirm investigations in the sleep laboratory, however, what many people had already on their own body in the hammock or in the water bed: The rhythmic motion promotes sleep. And first of all to go to Sleep quickly.

For comparison, they stayed in a second series of experiments, in the same beds, however, this time firmly standing on the ground.

Striking for the researchers, not only to the unique sleep effect. Also, the observation that the subjects woke up in the swing to sleep less, not surprised really. Even if the measured effect was amazingly clear and made it clear that the sensory rhythm stops-perception in sleep (what has been observed in experiments with music rhythms earlier) .
