Fatigue, alcohol and performance impairment
The performance impairment caused by fatigue is compared with that due to alcohol intoxication, and it is shown that moderate levels of fatigue produce higher levels of impairment than the proscribed level of alcohol intoxication.
Role of Sleep Timing in Caloric Intake and BMI
It is indicated that caloric intake after 8:00 pm may increase the risk of obesity, independent of sleep timing and duration, and future studies should investigate the biological and social mechanisms linking timing of sleep and feeding in order to develop novel time‐based interventions for weight management.
Aerobic exercise improves self-reported sleep and quality of life in older adults with insomnia.
Circadian misalignment and health
The role of circadian misalignment as a risk factor for disease in the general population and in clinical populations, including circadian rhythm sleep disorders and psychiatric disorders is described.
Timing and Intensity of Light Correlate with Body Weight in Adults
Exposure to moderate levels of light at biologically appropriate times can influence weight, independent of sleep timing and duration.
Circadian rhythm sleep disorders.
Social and Health Correlates of Sleep Duration in a US Hispanic Population: Results from the Hispanic Community Health Study/Study of Latinos.
Sleep duration is highly variable among US Hispanic/Latinos, varying by Hispanic/Latino heritage as well as socioeconomic status, which may have health consequences given associations between sleep duration and cardiometabolic disease, particularly obesity.
Circadian melatonin rhythm and excessive daytime sleepiness in Parkinson disease.
Circadian dysfunction may underlie excessive sleepiness in Parkinson disease and approaches aimed to strengthen circadian function, such as timed exposure to bright light and exercise, might serve as complementary therapies for the nonmotor manifestations of PD.

Identification of sleep disorders could lead to improved management of common age-related chronic illnesses and quality of life of elderly patients, given the growing evidence of a relationship between sleep and health.
