The results indicated that nocturnal sleep times decreased, bedtimes were delayed and differences between weekend and school day sleep schedules progressively increased with age, and gender and puberty were both associated with the timing of sleep on weekends.
Genome-wide association study of restless legs syndrome identifies common variants in three genomic regions
A genome-wide association study found highly significant associations between RLS and intronic variants in the homeobox gene MEIS1, the BTBD9 gene encoding a BTB(POZ) domain as well as variants in a third locus containing the genes encoding mitogen-activated protein kinase MAP2K5 and the transcription factor LBXCOR1 on chromosomes 2p, 6p and 15q.
Sleep Bruxism: Validity of Clinical Research Diagnostic Criteria in a Controlled Polysomnographic Study
Polysomnographic recordings from 18 bruxers and 18 asymptomatic subjects were analyzed to discriminate sleep bruxism from other orofacial motor activities and to calculate sensitivity, specificity, and predictive values of research criteria.

Reductions in general intellectual measures, as well as in executive and psychomotor tasks were all attributable to the severity of hypoxemia, while other attention and memory deficits were related to vigiance impairment.
REM sleep behavior disorder and REM sleep without atonia in Parkinson’s disease
RBD and REM sleep without atonia are frequent in PD as shown by PSG recordings, and their cases may represent preclinical forms of RBD associated with PD.
The search for the age of 'onset' of physical aggression: Rousseau and Bandura revisited
Background Studies of aggression often confound physical aggression with verbal aggression, indirect aggression, relational aggression, opposition, competition and other externalizing behaviours.…

The risk of developing neurodegenerative disease in idiopathic REM sleep behavior disorder is substantial, with the majority of patients developing Parkinson disease and Lewy body dementia.
Polysomnographic features of REM sleep behavior disorder
A new scoring method is described and its sensitivity to treatment with clonazepam is shown, suggesting that normal suppression of PLMS in REM sleep is due to motor inhibition.
Development of Parasomnias From Childhood to Early Adolescence
Although sleepwalking, night terrors, enuresis, and body rocking dramatically decreased during childhood, somniloquy, leg restlessness, and sleep bruxism were still highly prevalent at age 13 years, paralleling results found in adults.

Interestingly, 45 of the 46 sleep bruxers with values below SB-RDC were classified in the low-frequency cluster, and these individuals were more likely to complain of pain and fatigue of masticatory muscles than were the higher-frequency sleep bruXers.
