Man SleepingAccording to ABC 7 if you often find yourself forgetting where you put your keys or glasses, you may want to get a little extra sleep.

Scientists say it’s possible the brain may actually fall asleep for a split second, even though it feels like you’re awake.

After conducting a study on rats, scientists found when exhausted, parts of the brain could fall asleep for as short as a third of a second, while other parts remained active.

Researchers say the results have far-reaching implications, especially for people who work at jobs where lack of sleep could be dangerous.

It has been well researched that sleep deprivation is dangerous for your health. Dr. O’Toole advises his patients that the health effects are  also evident in a persons appearance. Lack of sleep can be seen on the faces of many Americans. It is not uncommon to see bags beneath the eyes, droopy eyelids, and a brow with wrinkles from stretching the forehead to appear more awake. Dr. O’Toole will commonly recommended both an upper and lower blepharoplasty and a brow lift. Most patients benefit tremendously; however, they must be good about the proper amount of sleep necessary to maintain their most youthful appearance.
