Heart Rate and Heart Rate Variability Modification in Chronic Insomnia Patients
TLDR
Results are consistent with the hypothesis that autonomic hyper-arousal is a major pathogenic mechanism in primary insomnia, and confirm that this condition is associated with an increased cardiovascular risk. Expand
Sleep disordered breathing in children and adolescents with Chiari malformation type I.
TLDR
The findings suggest that abnormalities in cerebrospinal fluid dynamics in CM-I, particularly syringomyelia and hydrocephalus, are associated with SDB. Expand
Sleep disordered breathing in a cohort of patients with sporadic inclusion body myositis
TLDR
Data indicate that IBM patients have poor sleep and high prevalence of SDB, and in particular SDB might be highly prevalent in IBM. Expand
Memories of attachment hamper EEG cortical connectivity in dissociative patients
TLDR
Light is shed on the neurophysiology of the disintegrative effect of retrieval of traumatic attachment memories in dissociative patients by electroencephalography (EEG) lagged coherence analysis. Expand
Abnormal sexual behavior during sleep.
TLDR
It is suggested that abnormal nocturnal sexual behavior can occur in association with distinct sleep disorders, characterized by different pathophysiologic mechanisms and distinctive treatments. Expand
Sleep and fatigue in multiple sclerosis: A questionnaire-based, cross-sectional, cohort study
TLDR
This study shows that MS is associated with a high prevalence of sleep complaints, including subjectively poor sleep quality, excessive daytime sleepiness, RLS and symptoms of OSAS and underlines their relationship with anxiety and depression in MS patients. Expand
Bilateral thalamic stroke transiently reduces arousals and NREM sleep instability
TLDR
Sleep-wake schedules, sleep structure and microstructure in a 68-year-old patient with occlusion of Percheron's artery are described, showing severe disruption of the sleep-wake cycle, with episodes of sleep and wakefulness recurring irregularly during day and night. Expand
Modifications of EEG power spectra in mesial temporal lobe during n-back tasks of increasing difficulty. A sLORETA study
TLDR
The results indicate that the most prominent modification induced by the increased complexity of the task occur in the mesial left temporal lobe structures. Expand
An integrated video-analysis software system designed for movement detection and sleep analysis. Validation of a tool for the behavioural study of sleep
TLDR
The computer-assisted motion analysis is reliable and reproducible, and it can allow a reliable esteem of some sleep and wake parameters, and the motion-based sleep analysis shows a trend to overestimate wakefulness. Expand
Psychological functioning measures in patients with primary insomnia and sleep state misperception
TLDR
The aim of this study was to record psychological functioning measures (anxiety, depression, ability to feel pleasure, obsessive–compulsive traits) in a population of patients with primary insomnia and to evaluate the relationship between these measures and the patients' perception of their sleep.
