Scientists have invented a technique which they say could help trigger deep sleep in the most chronic insomniac.How cool would it be to take a power nap with one of these and get the benefits of 8 hours of sleep?
Using medical equipment, they stimulated the brain with harmless magnetic pulses.
These penetrate the nerves that control a type of deep sleep called "slow-wave activity" and made their brains produce these waves.
Researchers believe the same principles could be used to create a machine which can electronically stimulate a deep-sleep power nap. This mimics the restorative benefits of eight hours of rest.
