Sleep Shrinks the Brain Ah, to sleep, perchance … to shrink your neural connections? That's the conclusion of new research that examined subtle changes in the brain during sleep. The researchers found that sleep provides a time when the brain's synapses — the connections among neurons—shrink back by nearly 20 percent.
