We analysed the effects of age and gender on the habitual sleep-wake rhythm in 2252 randomly selected subjects living in Shimonoseki, Japan. Subjects were divided into 21 age groups with a matching number of males and females for each. During the period from primary school to adolescence, the bedtime became delayed and sleep length decreased with age. After(More)
Cyclin-dependent kinase 2 (cdk2) plays a critical role in the G1- to S-phase checkpoint of the cell cycle. Adult cardiomyocytes are believed to withdraw from the cell cycle. To determine whether forced overexpression of cdk2 results in altered cell-cycle regulation in the adult heart, we generated transgenic mice specifically overexpressing cdk2 in hearts.(More)
We analyzed the effects of age and sex on habitual sleep/wake rhythm and Morningness-Eveningness scores of 2,252 subjects (6-89 years) randomly selected in Shimonoseki, Japan. Subjects were divided into 21 age groups with a matching number of men and women in each age group. The most common sleep parameter patterns by age showed a v- or inverted v-pattern(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to investigate the behavioral changes, in particular retention of memory, after focal cerebral ischemia in rats. METHODS Ischemia was produced by permanent occlusion of the left middle cerebral artery (MCA). For quantitative behavioral analysis, one-trial passive avoidance response and active avoidance(More)
Sleep patterns during saturation dives equivalent to a 30-m depth (pressurized condition) and habitation in a confined environment at 1 atm absolute pressure (non-pressurized condition) were studied to determine the effects of environmental pressure. Eight inexperienced divers experienced the pressurized condition of the saturation dives, and nine healthy(More)
This study assessed the effect of a nitrogen-oxygen (N2-02) saturation diving environment on nocturnal sleep and the differences in sleep on diving depth. We measured and recorded the standard polysomnograph and heart rate for a total of 459 nights on 27 divers who performed the N2-O2 saturation simulation dive an 20- and 30-m equivalent depths as well as(More)
The sleep patterns were examined during the simulated 30-m nitrox saturation dives. The standard polysomnography of 15 divers was recorded for a total of 255 nights, as were patterns of change or consistency in sleep variables. A reduction of total sleep time in accordance with the lengthening of sleep latency and the wake after sleep onset was observed(More)
