Dental device for snoring may slow onset of Alzheimer’s disease

A good night’s sleep plays an essential role in regulating brain health by removing the waste material and toxins that accumulate.

A team of researchers from Center for BrainHealth at The University of Texas at Dallas and Texas A&M University sought to understand the relationship between breathing rate during sleep and cognitive function, and how a snoring intervention affects brain health.
