Sleep and psychiatric disorders. A meta-analysis.
TLDR
Although no single sleep variable appeared to have absolute specificity for any particular psychiatric disorder, patterns of sleep disturbances associated with categories of psychiatric illnesses were observed. Expand
Anterior cingulate activity as a predictor of degree of treatment response in major depression: evidence from brain electrical tomography analysis.
TLDR
These results, based on electrophysiological imaging, not only support hemodynamic findings implicating activation of the anterior cingulate as a predictor of response in depression, but they also suggest that differential activity in the rostral anterior cedulate is associated with gradations of response. Expand
Chronic insomnia
TLDR
Combined CBT and drug treatment can optimise outcomes, although evidence to guide clinical practice on the best way to integrate these approaches is scarce. Expand
Sleep and Behavior Problems in School-Aged Children
TLDR
Parental perception of global sleep problems was surprisingly common in school-aged children receiving routine pediatric care and may be a red flag for specific sleep problems and psychiatric, social, or medical problems. Expand
Ten Putative Contributors to the Obesity Epidemic
TLDR
Evidence for microorganisms, epigenetics, increasing maternal age, greater fecundity among people with higher adiposity, assortative mating, sleep debt, endocrine disruptors, pharmaceutical iatrogenesis, reduction in variability of ambient temperatures, and intrauterine and intergenerational effects as contributing factors to the obesity epidemic are reviewed. Expand
Putative contributors to the secular increase in obesity: exploring the roads less traveled
TLDR
Investigation of plausible contributors to the obesity epidemic beyond the two most commonly suggested factors, reduced physical activity and food marketing practices found supportive evidence that in many cases is as compelling as the evidence for more commonly discussed putative explanations. Expand
Thalamic dysfunction in schizophrenia suggested by whole-night deficits in slow and fast spindles.
TLDR
Results indicate that spindle deficits can be reliably established in schizophrenia, are stable across the night, are unlikely to be due to antipsychotic medications, and point to deficits in the thalamic reticular nucleus and thalamo-reticular circuits. Expand
Safety and efficacy of suvorexant during 1-year treatment of insomnia with subsequent abrupt treatment discontinuation: a phase 3 randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial
TLDR
The findings show that suvorexant was generally safe and well tolerated over 1 year of nightly treatment in patients with insomnia, with efficacy noted for subjective measures of sleep onset and maintenance. Expand
Prospective associations of insomnia markers and symptoms with depression.
TLDR
Results support prior findings based on self-reported insomnia and may extend similar conclusions to objective markers and Heightened recognition and treatment of insomnia may prevent subsequent depression. Expand
