Studies show that when oxygen levels decrease, our brain takes a big hit—executive function declines, as well as our deductive reasoning skills. Brain imaging shows decreased volume in a part of the brain called the hippocampus and reduces gray matter. This can lead to hormonal imbalances, inflammation, and...
