Developed a cure for boredom

According to the study conducted by researchers from Japan, living organisms was discovered a special substance that could plunge the body into a state of rest. In addition, it can afford to get rid of boredom, just "adjusting" its concentration in the blood.

At the moment Japanese neuroscientists can control the sleep of mice, manipulating the working area of the brain responsible for sleep. Responsible for the discovery of scientists from the University of Tsukuba. According to scientists, the brain and hormonal system handles two types of signals: one responsible for the awakening of the body and mobilization of forces, the second for sleep and rest. The difference in the fluctuation of these impulses and "tells" the body when to sleep and when to awake. According to Professor yo Oishi

«All beings that have a nervous system, sleep in one form or another. In addition to the cycle of sleep and wakefulness, there are "intermediate" state. For example, people chased a dream when they need maximum concentration. At the same time when they are bored, to chase a dream much harder. Previously, we just assumed, what has caused this desire».

During the survey, the experts wanted to find out why boredom causes drowsiness: observing the behavior of mice, they noticed that after the rodents calmed down, in the brain and dramatically increased the concentration of adenosine, enhance the transfer of information between cells of the nervous system. Then the Japanese decided to enter the dose of the substance directly into the spinal cord of rodents. The result of these actions, the mouse really did fall asleep, abruptly plunging into the deeper stages of sleep. In the course of further studies it has become clear that adenosine deactivates the special center of the brain. Thus, with the introduction of adenosine or its antagonist (provided that these molecules will overcome the blood-brain barrier) can regulate mood, immersing the person in a state of boredom and withdrawal from it.
