    Missing out on sleep may cause the brain to stop producing new cells, a study has suggested.

    The work on rats, by a team from Princeton University found a lack of sleep affected the hippocampus, a brain region involved in forming memories.

    The research in Proceedings of the National Academy of Science showed a stress hormone causes the effect.

    A UK expert said it would be interesting to see if too little rather than no sleep had the same consequence.
