Blood Brain Barrier Connected to REM sleep?

Blood Barrier connected to REM sleep?

This is very interesting:
I PUT THESE TWO IDEAS TOGETHER

1.

I suggested that
NREM is body repair
REM is mind repair.

 

2.
The blood barrier is in 3 places:
blood – brain barrier (excluding the circumventrical organs = mostly lower brain)
blood – ocular barrier
blood – testes barrier

AND GOT

NREM, = body repair in the parts of the body without barriers
REM = repair in the 3 parts of the blood barrier

Note: REM is dreams in the mind, rapid eye movement, and testosterone production.

This study seems to support that idea

“REM sleep restriction increased blood-brain barrier permeability”

————————
Part two

This is very interesting. I’ve suggested that REM sleep is for nurturing those areas connected to the blood barrier system. (NREM or deep sleep is for nurturing the body and getting ready for the next day’s digestion).

If that is so then we have two somewhat independent systems. Blood system, and blood barrier system. Could they sometimes under trauma be in conflict?

Now I find that the blood barrier system goes beyond brain, eyes, and testis. The blood barrier system is somewhat bigger than that, and includes more body areas.

Here is my blood barrier list:

BRAIN – BLOOD BRAIN BARRIER
SPINAL CORD – BLOOD SPINAL CHORD BARRIER
EYES – BLOOD RETINAL BARRIER
INNER EAR – BLOOD LABYRINTH BARRIER
JOINTS – BLOOD SYNOVIAL BARRIER
TESTIS – BLOOD TESTIS BARRIER

Now just look at the chronic ailments that we humans have in these areas.
Headaches
Back aches
Eye strain – vision problems
Ear aches – most infants , hearing problems
Joint problems
Impotency

What then is the connection, if any between these things
Blood barrier set / REM /
Blood system /NREM

AND is there some type of trauma between the two (blood can’t get in barrier spots, and worries that it is a foreign object, non self, or infection?)

SECOND LIST OF BARRIERS (from Medical Dictionary)

blood-aqueous barrier (EYE)
the physiological mechanism that prevents exchange of materials between the chambers of the eye and the blood.

blood-brain barrier (BBB)
the barrier separating the blood from the brain parenchyma. See also blood-brain barrier.

blood-CSF barrier
differs from the blood-brain barrier anatomically, in that it consists of the epithelium of the choroid plexuses, but has similar permeabilities.

barrier-retina barrier
endothelium of the retinal capillaries and cells of the retinal pigment epithelium form a nonfenestrated barrier between choroidal tissue fluid and retinal tissue fluid.

blood-synovial barrier (BETWEEN JOINTS)
suggested by the presence of plasma proteins of small molecular size and catabolic products of articular cartilage in synovial fluid.

blood-testis barrier
a barrier separating the blood from the seminiferous tubules, consisting of special junctional complexes between adjacent Sertoli cells near the base of the seminiferous epithelium. It provides an extravascular environment which is also adluminal and permits selective nourishment of spermatozoa.
