CHICAGO Men's Nike Air Jordan 11 Low Rose Gold Sail For Sale , Aug. 25 (Xinhua) -- Gentle sound stimulation that synchronizes to the rhythm of brain waves could significantly enhance deep sleep in older adults and improve their ability to recall words, a new study of the Northwestern Medicine shows.
In the study, 13 participants aged 60 and older from the Cognitive Neurology and Alzheimer's Disease Center at Northwestern University (NU) Feinberg School of Medicine received one night of acoustic stimulation and one night of sham stimulation.
The sham stimulation procedure was identical to the acoustic one, but participants did not hear any noise during sleep. For both the sham and acoustic stimulation sessions, the individuals took a memory test at night and again the next morning. Recall ability after the sham stimulation generally improved on the morning test by a few percent. However, the average improvement was three times larger after "pink-noise" stimulation Men's Nike Air Jordan Melo 1.5 SE Black For Sale , a form of noise similar to the sounds that human ears can pick up the best.
The study has used a new approach to read an individual's brain waves in real time and lock in the gentle sound stimulation during a precise moment of neuron communication during deep sleep, which varies for each person.
Though NU researchers have not yet studied the effect of repeated nights of stimulation, this method could provide a viable intervention for longer-term use in the home, said senior author Dr. Phyllis Zee, professor of neurology at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and a Northwestern Medicine sleep specialist.
"This is an innovative, simple and safe non-medication approach that may help improve brain health Men's Nike Air Jordan Future Infrared Black For Sale ," said Zee. "This is a potential tool for enhancing memory in older populations and attenuating normal age-related memory decline."
While previous research only proved that acoustic simulation played during deep sleep could improve memory consolidation in young people, the new study has targeted at older individuals.
NU researchers are also testing the acoustic stimulation in overnight sleep studies on patients with memory complaints. Previous studies demonstrated a possible link between the sleep and memory impairments for adults with mild cognitive impairment.
The study has been published in Frontiers in Human Neuroscience. And NU has a patent pending for the technology.

AUGUSTA, Georiga Men's Air Jordan Zoom Tenacity 88 Black Cement Black For Sale , April 8 (Xinhua) -- Jack Nicklaus, the 75-year-old golf legend, thrilled the crowd as he made his first Masters hole-in-one during the Par 3 Contest here on Wednesday.
"I've never had a hole in one at Augusta. It's kind of fun," said Nicklaus. "I enjoy the Par 3 because I can actually play it because it's not long."
Jack Nicklaus, nicknamed "The Golden Bear", is widely regarded as the greatest professional golfer of all time Men's Nike Air Jordan Why Not Zer0.1 Low Light Smoke For Sale , winning a total of 18 career major championships, while producing 19 second-place and 9 third-place finishes in them, over a span of 25 years.
It's also the first time Tiger Woods, the four-time Masters champion, ever play the Par 3 Contest since 2004. "We had an absolutely great time. These were memories for a lifetime, " Woods Men's Nike Air Jordan Why Not Zer0.1 Low Black For Sale , with his children Sam and Charlie as caddies, said.
Kevin Streelman and Camilo Villegas Kevin claimed the Par 3 champs of the 2015 Masters tournament at 5-under. The Par 3 is a relaxed and unique event not only because children, spouses and parents take over caddie duties, enjoying the family time with players, but also no one is trying to win due to the fact that the Par 3 champion has never won the green jacket in the same year by far.
Exuberant displays of emotion are part and parcel of being a human, and are also part of the sports world Men's Nike Air Jordan Black Cat Bred Black For Sale , but it seems the world table tennis governing body doesn't think so.
China's newly crowned table tennis World Cup champion Zhang Jike was fined his entire prize money of $45,000 by the International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) after kicking down some sponsorship barriers surrounding the court as he celebrated his win.
The final, against compatriot Ma Long, saw Zhang win the match 8-11, 11-4, 13-11 Men's Nike Air Jordan XXXII Low Black Green For Sale , 7-11, 2-11, 11-5, 12-10 in a hard-fought match. Elated by the win, Zhang kicked the barriers, although he later apologized.
After being thrashed 3-0 by Dimitrij Ovtcharov of Germany in the World Team Table Tennis Championships in May Men's Nike Air Jordan XXXII TRIPLE BLACK Mid For Sale , Zhang has been beleaguered by strong questions over his form.
Later, the reigning Olympic men's singles champion was also dropped from China's singles' squad for the Incheon Asian Games.
From a career-high to a slump, the 26-year-old was burdened with tremendous pressure, and this may be one reason why he took his victory celebration a bit too far.
Swiss tennis great Roger -Federer, who is widely considered the most considerate tennis player, has also on occasion lost his temper mid-game.
The latest was during the hard-court Cincinnati Masters. Federer smashed his racket down during the third-round match against Gael Monfils of France when he was trailing 5-4 in the second set. Federer moved on and later lifted the trophy Men's Nike Air Jordan XXXII Pure Platinum For Sale , but nobody took his prize money using a stupid excuse like "damaging the court."
When footballer Juergen Klinsmann kicked an oversized Sanyo advertising battery can as he was substituted during the Bundesliga game against Freiburg in his Bayern Munich days back in 1997, he was fined too.
