Daily Times, United Arab Emirates: - There is a relationship between sleep and dementia, but the relationship actually exists between the number of hours of sleep and the incidence of this disease, and this is demonstrated by a recent study conducted on a sample of eight thousand British people whose ages start from 25 years.

The study is issued by the French National Institute of Health and Medical Research and the University of Paris in cooperation with the "University College" in London.

The study showed that the risk of developing dementia is higher by 20 to 40% in people who sleep for a short period, and whose sleep duration is equal to six hours per night or less at the age of fifty or sixty, than it is for those who spend "normal" nights of no less Sleeping about seven hours.

Study participants self-assessed their sleep duration 6 times between 1985 and 2015, and in 2012, about 3,900 of them also put an accelerometer watch that captures movement during sleep at night in order to verify the accuracy of their estimates, which confirmed the findings related to the risk of developing dementia over a period of time. It extended to March 2019.
