Come to the calm of a well functioning brain.
Scientists from Brigham Young University are studying the way that our brains work when we are sleeping. Or are we sleeping in an awakened state, consciousness? Insomnia can be widely defined as the brain not shutting off. The brain sends inhibitory neurons that help to lower consciousness to get to a deep sleep. When someone has a normal response to the inhibitory neurons they fall into a sleep pattern in the brain much quicker. When the brain of the person that has insomnia was studied their brain had this inhibitory response. However, their conscious understanding of being asleep was not available. When the person with insomnia was awakened, with a sleep pattern, their response was, "I was awake". So there is a sleep misperception with people with insomnia. The scientists think that there must be a problem with the inhibitory response of the brain.
LENS is a powerful tool that helps the brain to smooth out, calm down and work better.
