Fifty-six studies were reviewed that explored cognitive dysfunctions in people with sleep-related breathing disorders (SRBD, 24 studies), insomnia (18 studies), or narcolepsy (14 studies). Individual study outcomes were grouped according to neuropsychological functions. Available evidence was reviewed separately for SRBD, insomnia and narcolepsy. Consistent evidence was found for impaired driving simulation performance in SRBD patients (92.9% of comparisons with control subjects). Other… Expand
Cognitive Dysfunction in Insomnia Phenotypes: Further Evidence for Different Disorders
TLDR
Individuals with NSDI demonstrated greater working memory inconsistency, despite no laboratory assessed sleep problems, implicating early signs of pathophysiology other than disturbed sleep in the disease process of this phenotype. Expand
Deficits in attention performance are associated with insufficiency of slow-wave sleep in insomnia.
TLDR
The findings suggest that insomnia is associated with deficits in executive control of attention and that the underlying mechanism may be insufficiency of slow-wave sleep in chronic insomnia. Expand
Memory and Cognition in Narcolepsy
Many patients suffering from the sleep disorder of narcolepsy complain about cognitive dysfunction, most about frequent memory and concentration problems. These self-reports have not consistentlyExpand
Cognitive impairment in individuals with insomnia: clinical significance and correlates.
TLDR
Findings suggest clinically significant alterations in attention and episodic memory in individuals with insomnia appear associated with sleep continuity, and may also be related to sleep microstructure and dysfunctional beliefs. Expand
Association between sleep disorders and cognitive dysfunctions in non-demented patients with advanced Parkinson’s disease
TLDR
In advanced PD patients, sleep disturbances selectively correlate with specific neuropsychological functions and not with short-term memory and consolidation, suggesting the importance of considering treatment of sleep disturbances to minimize their potential impact on cognition. Expand
Neuropsychological performance in older insomniacs
TLDR
It is concluded that DSM-IV defined insomnia was not associated with any performance based measure; only with self-reported symptoms. Expand
Examination of Daytime Sleepiness and Cognitive Performance Testing in Patients with Primary Insomnia
TLDR
It is suggested that PIPs do show executive control function deficits compared with GSCs, and daytime sleepiness in terms of MSLT latency was associated with poor cognitive manifestations in patients with insomnia. Expand
Neurocognitive performance in insomnia disorder: The impact of hyperarousal and short sleep duration
TLDR
A phenotype of insomnia disorder with hyperarousal and short sleep duration is associated with daytime cognitive deficits in complex attentional and spatial working memory tasks. Expand
The relationship between sleep and cognition in Parkinson's disease: A meta-analysis.
TLDR
Although there are effects on memory and executive function associated with poor sleep in PD, the effects were driven by a small number of studies, and numerous methodological issues were identified. Expand
Executive Control of Attention in Narcolepsy
TLDR
It is demonstrated that drug-free patients with NC and NwC complained of attention deficit, with altered executive control of attention being explained by the severity of objective sleepiness and global intellectual level. Expand

Neuropsychological function in mild sleep-disordered breathing.
TLDR
Subjects with mild SDB may manifest a vigilance deficit in the absence of substantial sleepiness, and subjects with a mildly elevated RDI do not appear to suffer appreciable deficits in more complex neuropsychological processes. Expand
Severity of insomnia correlates with cognitive impairment.
TLDR
No correlations between results of SRT and standard PSG parameters were found, in accordance with the thesis that subjective feeling of nonrestorative sleep and other accompanying deficits are only symptoms of an underlying 24-hour disorder. Expand
Deficits of cognitive executive functions in patients with sleep apnea syndrome.
TLDR
Patients with sleep apnea syndrome were found to have a significantly decreased ability to initiate new mental processes and to inhibit automatic ones, in conjunction with a tendency for preservative errors, and had reduced memory spans. Expand
Neuropsychological function in obstructive sleep apnoea.
TLDR
Experimental and clinical evidence supports a role for nocturnal physiological events of OSA, arousals and hypoxaemia, in directly or indirectly producing neuropsychological deficits, particularly those of sleepiness and cognitive deterioration. Expand
Sleep-disordered breathing and neuropsychological deficits. A population-based study.
TLDR
In assessing the clinical significance of mild SDB, it is estimated that an AHI of 15 is equivalent to the decrement in psychomotor efficiency associated with 5 additional yr of age, or to 50% of the decrements associated with hypnosedative use. Expand
Cognitive function in the sleep apnea/hypopnea syndrome (SAHS).
TLDR
An overview of impairment effect sizes from case-control studies of cognitive performance in SAHS suggests that deficits broadly worsen with disease severity, with large average values for attentional and executive cognitive scores, and moderate values for memory-related performance scores. Expand
Cognitive deficits associated with sleep apnea syndrome: a proposed neuropsychological test battery.
TLDR
A test battery designed to cover the main cognitive functions reported as being impaired in OSAS patients is proposed, taking into account the time constraints present in most research and clinical centers. Expand
The disturbance of cognitive processes in narcolepsy
SUMMARY  Neuropsychological methods have been applied by different authors to investigate cognitive processes such as attention, information processing, memory and psychomotor performance inExpand
Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome: pathogenesis of neuropsychological deficits.
TLDR
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. Expand
Effects of chronic insomnia and use of benzodiazepines on daytime performance in older adults.
TLDR
It is suggested that the attention/concentration difficulties experienced by medicated and unmedicated older adults with insomnia may be linked to a state of hyperarousal. Expand
