Wisconsin researchers identify sleep gene

.... One way of getting from the faster to the slower state is by opening ion channels, allowing potassium to flow through them. "Our hypothesis is that if you don't have potassium channels, you won't get slow waves," Cirelli says. "The cell membrane will remain activated, preventing long periods of deep, no...
