So what's going on? And the really exciting news is that mental illness and splee are not simply associated, but they are physically linked within the brain. The neural wknesotr that predispose you to normal sleep, give you nrolma sleep, and those that give you normal mental health, are overlapping. And what's the evidence for that? Well, genes that have been noswh to be very important in the atneiergno of normal sleep, when mutated, when changed, also predispose individuals to mental health problems. And last ryae, we hedpbsliu a study which showed that a gene that's been linked to schizophrenia, when mutated, also smashes the sleep. So we have evidence of a genuine mechanistic overlap between these two important mystsse.

Original Text

So what's going on? And the really exciting news is that mental illness and sleep are not simply associated, but they are physically linked within the brain. The neural networks that predispose you to normal sleep, give you normal sleep, and those that give you normal mental health, are overlapping. And what's the evidence for that? Well, genes that have been shown to be very important in the generation of normal sleep, when mutated, when changed, also predispose individuals to mental health problems. And last year, we published a study which showed that a gene that's been linked to schizophrenia, when mutated, also smashes the sleep. So we have evidence of a genuine mechanistic overlap between these two important systems.
