A lack of sleep can certainly lead to crankiness and a spat with your spouse, but new research shows that if it happens consistently, it could take a serious toll on your health.

Specific cerebral circuitry bridges chemical changes deep in the brain and the more outward behavioral expressions associated with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which could lead to more objective biomarkers for the disorder, according to a comprehensive review of rapidly changing data published June 22 in the New England Journal of Medicine.
A new brain imaging study by the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) in Toronto shows for the first time that brain inflammation is significantly elevated -- more than 30 per cent higher -- in people with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) than in people without the condition.
