Contrary to popular belief, we actually use our entire brain – not the commonly believed 10%.
You can think of the brain like an office building with billions of tiny workers in the form of neurons and synapses. The study, which was carried out by researchers at The Sleep Disorders Center at the Vita-Salute San Raffaele University in Milan, Italy, found that sleep apnea damages white matter fiber integrity in many different areas of the brain. The study included 17 men with a mean age of 43 who all had severe untreated obstructive sleep apnea – meaning that they had never tried CPAP before. After twelve months of CPAP therapy, patients showed an almost “complete reversal of white matter abnormalities.” Basically, CPAP had restored the brain from the damage caused by obstructive sleep apnea. This groundbreaking study is yet another notch in CPAP’s long list of defeats against the symptoms obstructive sleep apnea. If you are a middle aged or older, and are exposed to polluted air longer durations, you may be at risk of damaging your brain. A sustained exposure to red and near infrared light can improve blood flow in the region of exposure, according to a new study on Gulf War veterans. Multi-tasking can hamper your performance and may even damage your brain, claim researchers from Stanford University. Researchers have discovered the mechanism linked to stroke damage and brain function, thus paving the way to develop a new drug target to block brain damage.
Infants with a rare form of a insulin disease that may lead to brain damage and death can now be identified earlier, thanks to a test developed by researchers from the University of Manchester in Britain. Scientists, including one of Indian-origin, have found that stopping the body's immune system from killing brain cells can reduce the brain damage caused by head injuries. A new study has recently revealed that kids living in megacities are more prone to brain damage from air pollution. Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy can help reverse brain damage caused by severe sleep apnea, says a study.
Researchers have identified the area of brain that is involved in multitasking and how people can train it to be better at the skill.


Engineering a protein, research shows, may prevent brain damage in civilians and soldiers exposed to poisonous chemicals - particularly those in pesticides and chemical weapons. Anthropologists have unearthed a 100,000-year-old skeleton of a child in Israel who may have died because of a brain injury - the oldest evidence of brain damage in a modern human.
Researchers have said that chronic brain damage may not be as prevalent in NFL players as thought.
Child abuse can reduce the volume of grey matter in the brain that is responsible for processing information, a new study has found. Your brain leaves the lights on around the clock – seven days a week and 365 days a year – to complete a myriad of unique functions; all to keep you alive while you do things like binge-watch Duck Dynasty. This damage is literally destroying your brain’s ability to send messages to the grey matter, which can create a whole host of issues, like impairment to cognition, mood and daytime alertness. They were given various tests to assess the damage caused by the sleep disorder and were prescribed CPAP therapy. The researchers used unique image resonance technology that lights up certain parts of the brain, so they had an almost crystal clear picture of what the white matter looked like before and after treatment. This study is also a sequel to a previous study by the same researchers, which found that CPAP can restore the damage caused by sleep apnea to the grey matter of the brain – the executive department of the brain responsible for all things cognitive.  If you have untreated sleep apnea, it is important to start undergoing CPAP immediately to reverse the damage caused to your brain. When it comes to the functionality of our brain, there are two general areas –  “white matter” and “grey matter” – that keep things ticking.
The white matter of the brain is sort of like the secretarial department where messages travel through pneumatic tube-like myelinated axons to the grey matter, so that you can function as a normal human.
Now, a new neuroimaging study shows that damage to the white matter caused by obstructive sleep apnea can be almost completely reversed by continuous positive airway treatment (CPAP) treatment.
