Having trouble sleeping? The answer to having trouble falling asleep could lie with what you do right before bed. Rescuers at UT Southwestern have discovered that the proteins phosphorylated dynamin and phosphorylated N-myc can effect alertness and sleep-wake balance. The proteins are released depending on what people are doing during waking hours: Are they excited to stay awake or are they reluctantly staying awake? The results could help people who suffer from insomnia.
