Neurons are what make us fall asleep when we are bored
Jul 11, 2019
Many people have fallen asleep during a meeting or a class at least once in their lives but, has anyone ever wondered the cause of this? Recently, scientists found that people get bored when they aren't doing any interesting or stimulating activities, which makes them fall asleep. After studying this situation, researchers discovered that neurons, which are the nerve cells responsible for transmitting information throughout the human body, were responsible for this behavior. Moreover, scientists explained that it was the nucleus accumbens neuron that made us enter a non-rapid eye sleep from which we could be quickly woken up, and advised that to avoid falling asleep, we should drink caffeinated beverages before important meetings or school lessons.
