Sleep spindles are more than just a strange phenomenon that happens during sleep. They play an essential role in soothing PTSD anxiety and enhancing memory retention.

Did you know that even brief periods of brain activity during sleep, known as sleep spindles, could potentially help regulate anxiety in those with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)? According to some researchers who recently studied the issue, the findings could offer help for people struggling with anxiety or other problems. They’re even looking into ways to use non-invasive treatments to harness the power of sleep spindles more fully. And it’s not just sleep hygiene that can help. Electrical brain stimulation, or prescription sleep medications could also promote sleep spindles associated with NREM2 sleep, which could provide relief for those suffering from stress and anxiety disorder.
