Sleep deprivation can help with depression!

So I got my bp magazine (Bipolar Magazine) today and as I was reading it I found a articles title Sleep deprivation eases depression, but cognitive symptoms persist in remission so I read it and it said.

Patients with bipolar who were in a depressive episode were treated with total sleep deprivation intentionally not sleeping for one or more night, previous studies have suggested can be a raped and sustained treatment for depression.

A control group of people without bipolar also underwent sleep deprivation.

The researchers found that the clinical symptoms of depression improved in the patients with bipolar but cognitive impairment persisted. However, unlike the control group, the group with bipolar did not experience worsening of mental function after sleep loss.

at the beginning of the articles it did say "but they continued to have impaired neuropsychological functioning even after remission so base on that I have to say that the cognitive impairment do not increase because of the sleep loss, that it is the normal cognitive impairment that we all way have.
