Memory problems linked to sleep apnoea

16th April 2015

According to a study in the journal Neurology, people with sleep apnoea are more likely to develop memory loss.


A database of 2,400 people aged over 55 was used by US scientists.

The people who reported suffering from sleep apnoea also said they had problems with their thinking a decade earlier than those who slept well.

More research is under way to clarify the link.
