Rapid eye movement (REM) sleep behavior disorder (RBD) is a failure of the circuitry regulating motor atonia during REM sleep. In REM sleep, neurons of the sublaterodorsal tegmental nucleus (SLD) project to interneurons in the ventromedial medulla (VMM) and spinal cord that in turn inhibit spinal motoneurons. In RBD, degeneration of this circuitry(More)

STUDY OBJECTIVES Excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) and high daytime REM sleep pressure are important sleep features of myotonic dystrophy (DM1). Small and uncontrolled studies have focused on EDS phenotype; none have focused on nocturnal REM sleep characteristics in DM1. Our objectives were to compare polysomnographic and multiple sleep latency test (MSLT)(More)

BACKGROUND Excessive daytime sleepiness is a frequent complaint in Parkinson's disease (PD); however the frequency and risk factors for objective sleepiness remain mostly unknown. We investigated both the frequency and determinants of self-reported and objective daytime sleepiness in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) using a wide range of potential(More)
We consider a two-hop non-regenerative (amplify-and-forward) relay link with one source, one destination and one relay, in which orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) is used. The power allocation (PA) to maximize the energy efficiency for the whole link is investigated under quality of service (Qos) requirement and separate power constraints.(More)
Coregistered fluoro-deoxy-glucose (FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) has shown potential to improve the accuracy of radiation targeting of head and neck cancer (HNC) when compared to the use of CT simulation alone. The objective of this study was to identify textural features useful in distinguishing tumor from normal tissue in(More)
Neuronal activity greatly influences the formation and stabilization of synapses. Although receptors for sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P), a lipid mediator regulating diverse cellular processes, are abundant in the central nervous system, neuron-specific functions of S1P remain largely undefined. Here, we report two novel actions of S1P using primary(More)

OBJECTIVES To investigate decision-making and addictive behaviors in narcolepsy-cataplexy (NC). NC is caused by the loss of hypothalamic neurons that produce hypocretins. The hypocretin system plays a crucial role in sleep, wakefulness, and energy homeostasis, and is also involved in emotion regulation, reward processing, and addiction. SETTING Academic(More)
