Sleeping in the lateral, or side position, as compared to sleeping on ones back or stomach, may more effectively remove brain waste and prove to be an important practice to help reduce the chances of developing Alzheimers, Parkinsons and other neurological diseases, according to researchers at Stony Brook University.

The methodology used ( dynamic contrast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) )enables researchers to identify and define the glymphatic pathway, where cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) filters through the brain and exchanges with interstitial fluid (ISF) to clear waste, similar to the way the body lymphatic system clears waste from organs. It is during sleep that the glymphatic pathway is most efficient. Brain waste includes amyloid β (amyloid) and tau proteins, chemicals that negatively affect brain processes if they build up.
