Frequent Wake-Ups At Night Can Be Caused By The Neuronal Noise
It Is The Voltage In Neurons And Increases In Cold Temperature
Most people wake up a dozen times at night but do not remember it. The cause is the neuronal noise, which are random fluctuations in the voltage of the neurons, which can increase to the point of causing to wake up. One of the factors that affect this neuronal noise is the temperature. A high temperature lowers the neuronal noise, and also the frequency of these wake-ups. Lower temperatures have the opposite effect, increasing the frequency of wake-ups, and even preventing to sleep again. This is important for babies with impaired breathing, which, when placed in hot rooms, do not have the neuronal noise to wake up, increasing the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.
