To estimate the process of re-entrainment we measured the melatonin rhythm on an eastward flight. After the baseline study, 24-hour blood sampling of six male subjects was done on the first and fifth days. During the daytime the subjects were exposed to natural zeitgeber outdoors every day except the blood sampling day. They were analyzed with an(More)
The purpose of this study was to clarify the changes in psycho-physiological functions after anaesthesia with propofol (PF). The subjects were seven healthy male volunteers and the duration of the anaesthesia was 1 h (14:00-15:00 h). The plasma concentration of PF immediately decreased after the anaesthesia. The subjective sleepiness and VAS (visual liner(More)
We investigated the re-entrainment of melatonin rhythm in an 11-h eastward-bound flight. Eight male subjects participated in the present study. Blood sampling was carried out once before the flight and twice after the flight. During the daytime the subjects were exposed to natural zeitgeber outdoors on the day except the blood sampling. Seven of eight(More)
The effect of 3 mg of melatonin on the rate of re-entrainment of plasma melatonin rhythm after an 11-h eastward flight was assessed. Eight subjects participated in the study, and underwent 24-h blood samplings once before the flight and twice after the flight. Subjects were exposed to natural zeitgeber outdoors and took 3 mg of malatonin at 20:00 h local(More)
Psychotic symptoms often occur as a complication in Parkinson's disease patients, and a set of criteria for Parkinson's disease with psychosis (PDPsy) has been established. Among these criteria, hallucinations are one of the specific symptoms, with visual hallucinations being the most common. While atypical antipsychotic agents are often used for the(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVES Cyclic alternating pattern (CAP) is frequently followed by changes in heart rate (HR) and blood pressure (BP), but the sequential associations between CAP and autonomic nerve activity have not been studied. The study aimed to reveal the precise changes in heart rate variability (HRV) during phase A of the CAP cycle. DESIGN Polysomnography(More)
In order to assess the effect of melatonin on jet lag a field study was undertaken. The process of re-entrainment of circadian melatonin rhythm was investigated in six subjects. Except during 24-h blood sampling, the subjects were exposed to natural zeitgeber (time giver) outdoors and given 3 mg melatonin at 23:00 h. The subjects were exposed to bright(More)
The clinical data of 86 cases of primary circadian rhythm sleep disorder (primary CRSD) were retrospectively examined and compared to 40 cases of secondary circadian rhythm sleep disorder (secondary CRSD), who had presented with some kind of psychiatric or medical disorder, and had exhibited sleep-wake rhythm disorders that were judged to be secondary CRSD(More)
OBJECTIVE A placebo-controlled randomized crossover study to investigate the effects of zolpidem on sleep stability in Japanese insomniac patients was performed using the cyclic alternating pattern (CAP) rate, a polysomnographic marker that reflects sleep instability. METHODS Seventeen patients (5 M and 12 F, mean age: 40.4+/-13.6 years) who met the(More)
The purpose of this study was to compare the efficacy of individual and group cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) in outpatients with primary insomnia diagnosed by DSM-IV-TR. The participants were 20 individually treated (I-CBT-I) and 25 treated in a group therapy format (three to five patients per group) (G-CBT-I), which showed no significant(More)
