What happens to your mind if you don't sleep? Not enough sleep affects your memory. One of the things that can happen if you don’t sleep it changes your thinking abilities and impairs your memory.
The first way sleep deprivation impairs your memory is it increases cortisol levels. Chronically elevated cortisol levels cause memory decline similar to what you would see in age-related dementia.
The second way poor sleep impairs your memory is through it’s effect or slow wave sleep and REM sleep. When you sleep, your brain goes through a process of memory consolidation. This is where you form memories. More specifically, slow wave sleep is the deep sleep you need to consolidate declarative memories. REM (rapid eye movement sleep) is the sleep you need to consolidate procedural memories.
In the video I explain how pulling an all nighter is one of the worst things you can do to help you remember things the next day.

I'm too scared to watch this because I have had untreated narcolepsy with cataplexy for about 7 years now (I'm 22). I'm afraid of what is happening to my brain. I haven't been able to sleep for more than 1 hour at a time (and my sleep schedule is typically 1 hour of sleep, then 3-4 hours awake.) My brain's ability to focus and think and do tasks is declining. I'm still waiting for medication so I can sleep but I'm scared I'm going to die in the meantime or my brain will just be even foggier than it is now. I'm so paranoid about my brain function declining 😱
is it possible to reverse the effects of insomnia? lately I've felt practically sick with sleep deprivation. I like a different person, like my personality has changed over the course of the past few weeks. I typically cannot sleep until my body is too exhausted to function. which most nights is at 7:00 am, but after going back on Adderall for my adhd, which worsens my insomnia, it bumped my sleep schedule from waking up at 2-4:00 pm and sleeping at 7:00 am to sleeping at 10:00 am, beyond nocturnal. Even when i was sleeping in the morning and waking up in the afternoon i still got around 8 hours. but the current trend is falling asleep at around 10:00 am to noon then waking up an hour or two later, giving me only an hour of sleep, although at night i'm able to sleep for about 2-6 hours after this. although 6 hours is lucky. i feel miserable, both mentally and physically. Will i ever recover? will my personality be permanently changed?
why I have no friend till now

I am exhausted by every day night dreams. It makes me to wake up several times in the night. A sequence of short, frequent dreams within a night make me mad. What could be the reason? Can you help me

Just a headsup- the music in the backgorund is really loud and distracting.
I'm willing to bet sleep deprivation exacerbates post partum depression. Being jolted awake night after night and then battling to get back to sleep must do a number on your brain chemistry.
Will insomnia effect my testosterone level? I've heard that it does but how impactful is it? I usually get enough sleep just at awful times but occasionally I have to pull an all nighter because I have something planned but I can't sleep until the sun comes up ( which is usually when actually feel tired)

My wife has a hard time sleeping so she began drinking chamomile tea during the day and reducing her intake of caffeine. It's working very well and she's able to relax and fall asleep and stay asleep. Thank you for the video they're incredibly educational and useful.
