Regional reductions in sleep electroencephalography power in obstructive sleep apnea: a high-density EEG study.
TLDR
This investigation suggests that regional deficits in electroencephalography (EEG) power generation may be a useful clinical marker for neural disruption in obstructive sleep apnea, and that high-density EEG may have the sensitivity to detect pathological cortical changes early in the disease process. Expand
Circadian Disruption in Psychiatric Disorders.
TLDR
Circadian disruption in the clinical profiles of most psychiatric illnesses and the treatment efficacy of chronobiological interventions suggest that attention to circadian phenotypes in a range of psychiatric disorders may help to uncover shared pathophysiologic mechanisms. Expand
Seasonal influences on sleep and executive function in the migratory White-crowned Sparrow (Zonotrichia leucophrys gambelii)
TLDR
Birds showed dramatic changes in sleep duration across seasons, related to day length and migratory status, whereas duration of sleep in the non-migratory periods was largely influenced by the light-dark cycle. Expand
A high-density electroencephalography study reveals abnormal sleep homeostasis in patients with rapid eye movement sleep behavior disorder
TLDR
Reduced overnight decline in SWA suggests a reduced capacity for synaptic plasticity in RBD patients, which may favor progression towards neurodegenerative diseases. Expand
Sleep and emotion processing in paediatric posttraumatic stress disorder: A pilot investigation
TLDR
The results highlight the importance of slow‐wave sleep for adaptive emotional processing in youth, and have implications for symptom persistence in paediatric posttraumatic stress disorder. Expand
Sleep and Biological Rhythms
TLDR
This chapter reviews the anatomical and functional substrates responsible for the generation of sleep and circadian rhythms, and highlights the behavioral and physiological processes that are modulated by the reciprocal interaction between circadian rhythmicity and the sleep-wake cycle under normal conditions. Expand
HYPOXIA DURING SLEEP IS ASSOCIATED WITH HIPPOCAMPAL VOLUME IN COGNITIVELY UNIMPAIRED ADULTS
TLDR
The observed changes in regional cerebral metabolism may point to exacerbating interactions between known risk factors for Alzheimer’s disease development, and the possibility that maintaining normoglycemic status may be of particular benefit among women with elevated risk for developing dementia. Expand
Gulf War veterans exhibit broadband sleep EEG power reductions in regions overlying the frontal lobe.
TLDR
It appears unlikely that frontal sleep HDEEG power reductions prove wholly responsible for fatigue symptoms, and these results provide avenues for research which may someday contribute to improved clinical care of formerly deployed veterans of the Persian Gulf War. Expand
