Sleep Deprivation Leads to Accumulation of Protein Fragment Associated With Alzheimer’s
Sleep deprivation in healthy people leads to the accumulation of a protein fragment associated with abnormalities in brain function and Alzheimer's disease.

One of the hallmarks of Alzheimer’s disease is the formation of
