Just some more Junk Science.

Why some people can sleep through anything

Dr. Jeffrey Ellenbogen, chief of the sleep medicine division at Massachusetts General Hospital, and a team of researchers believe they have cracked a brain-wave code that predicts how and why some people are more easily stirred from slumber by bumps in the night while others can saw logs through clanking garbage trucks and snoring partners.

In short, he found, if youíre not sleeping well, you can blame your spindles. Thatís what doctors have dubbed quick bursts of brain activity that our thalamus gives off every 10 to 60 seconds as we sleep. For years, scientists have theorized that these spindles may be signs that the thalamus, essentially a sleep shield, is working to block sounds or other sensory information, Razz Razz Razz helping to keep us in dreamland.

I've found that as I age, once I get to sleep, I have no trouble sleeping through a great deal of noise. At least until the wee hours of the morning that is.
