Ontogenetic development of the human sleep-dream cycle.
TLDR
REPORTS Stratigraphy of the Wisconsin Range, Horlick Mountains, Antarctica, and Dechlorination of DDT by Aerobacter aerogenes, Antarctica. Expand
Twenty-four hour pattern of the episodic secretion of cortisol in normal subjects.
TLDR
Although great variability was found in both the amount of cortisol secreted and the time spent in secretory activity/hr, the secretory rate was quite constant at approximately .05 mg/min. Expand
Activity of mesencephalic dopamine and non-dopamine neurons across stages of sleep and waking in the rat
TLDR
Whereas other monoaminergic neurons and various cortical and subcortical neurons exhibit marked changes in firing rate across the stages of sleep and waking, the dopamine neurons are unique in their lack of change in firing rates across stages. Expand
Sleep-wake disorders based on a polysomnographic diagnosis. A national cooperative study.
TLDR
Under the organizational aegis of Project Sleep and the Association of Sleep Disorders Centers (ASDC), nearly 5,000 patient records from 11 sleep-wake disorders clinics were analyzed in a cooperative study, and the most prevalent diagnoses were sleep apnea and narcolepsy. Expand
Dream imagery: relationship to rapid eye movements of sleep.
TLDR
George Trumbull Ladd suggested in 1892 that the visual elements of dreams were derivations of the "psychical synthesis" of night-time retinal sense data, but this hypothesis went unverified until 1955 when Aserinsky and Kleitman 2 reported actual observations of ocular movements during sleep. Expand
Disrupted 24-hour patterns of cortisol secretion in psychotic depression.
TLDR
The data suggest an abnormal disinhibition during depressive illness of the neuroendocrine centers regulating adrenocorticotrophic hormone release, which may be involved in the hypersecretion of cortisol in certain depressed patients. Expand
A functional role for REM sleep in brain maturation
TLDR
It is found that suppression of REM sleep processes by an instrumental REM deprivation procedure results in a significant enhancement of the effects of altered visual experience by monocular occlusion and concludes that REM sleep directs the course of brain maturation in early life through the control of neural activity. Expand
Effects of Fluoxetine on the Polysomnogram in Outpatients with Major Depression
TLDR
After fluoxetine was discontinued, total REM sleep and sleep efficiency were found to be increased as compared to baseline, and subjective measures of sleep indicated a steady improvement during acute phase treatment. Expand
The effects of 1 week of REM sleep deprivation on parvalbumin and calbindin immunoreactive neurons in central visual pathways of kittens
TLDR
Data suggest that in early postnatal brain development, REM sleep facilitates the usual time course of the expression of PV‐immunoreactivity in LGN neurons, which is an essential step in the development of the kitten’s visual system. Expand
Age-related change in the twenty-four-hour spontaneous secretion of growth hormone.
TLDR
Growth hormone was secreted during both awake and asleep periods but the number of secretory episodes was less than in adole... Expand
