Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is a common disorder in adults and children, which is characterized by repetitive transient reversible upper airway obstructions during sleep. Due to disrupted sleep architecture and intermittent hypoxemia, OSAS leads to impaired daytime functioning in various neuropsychological and affective domains. The most common abnormalities are executive dysfunction, impaired vigilance, depression, and possibly anxiety and, in children, hyperactivity. Optimal… Expand
Effects of continuous positive airway pressure on cognitition and neuroimaging data in sleep apnea.
TLDR
A narrative review of the publications on cognition and neuroimaging in OSA before and after CPAP treatment is provided, suggesting that the OSA-related changes in brain morphology may improve withCPAP treatment. Expand
Cognition in Obstructive Sleep Apnea-Hypopnea Syndrome (OSAS): Current Clinical Knowledge and the Impact of Treatment
TLDR
A review of the literature on OSAS and cognition, including studies that have investigated the impact of CPAP and stimulant medication on cognitive performance in patients with OSAS, finds no consistent effect ofCPAP use on Cognitive performance was evident. Expand
Role of psychiatric status assessment of patient with obstructive sleep apnea
TLDR
A literature review examines the available reports on obstructive sleep apnea and reports on psychiatric problems experienced by patients with OSA, which include excessive daytime sleepiness, insomnia, cognitive disorders, depressive disorders, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, posttraumatic stress disorder, psychosis, neurasthenia and other neurotic disorders. Expand
Psychotic depression induced by Obstructive Sleep Apnoea Syndrome (OSAS): a case reported.
TLDR
The case of a 51-year-old man who was diagnosed of SAOS after presenting psychotic and affective symptoms that did not respond to any medication is presented and the treatment resulted in complete remission of the psychiatric symptoms mentioned. Expand
Withstanding the obstructive sleep apnea syndrome at the expense of arousal instability, altered cerebral autoregulation and neurocognitive decline.
TLDR
A pragmatic framework of the possible neural mechanisms which underpin obstructive sleep apnea-related neurocognitive decline has been discussed and the impact of OSAS on cerebral autoregulation and sleep microstructure has been articulated. Expand
Psychomotor Performance in Patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome
TLDR
It is concluded that severe OSA impaired speed of perception, convergent, and operative thinking and suggested that EDS did not contribute to poor psychomotor outcome in patients with OSA in this study, when age was controlled for. Expand
Cognitive complaints in obstructive sleep apnea.
TLDR
Cognitive complaints appear to be at least partially related to subjective sleepiness, but they are not necessarily a sign of objective cognitive impairment, and the impact of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) treatment on cognitive complaints in OSA warrants further study. Expand
Obstructive sleep apnea and depression: a review.
TLDR
Increased knowledge of the relationship between obstructive sleep apnea and depression might significantly improve diagnostic accuracy as well as treatment outcomes for both obstructiveSleep apneaand depression. Expand
Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome in Prader-Willi Syndrome: An Unrecognized and Untreated Cause of Cognitive and Behavioral Deficits?
TLDR
It is concluded that obstructive sleep apnea syndrome may be an important secondary contributing factor to reduced neurocognitive and psychosocial performance in Prader-Willi Syndrome. Expand
Daytime sleepiness, sleep disturbance and functioning impairment in bipolar disorder
TLDR
This study suggests that EDS is a relevant clinical dimension in patients with bipolar disorder and reveals that once present it has the potential to increase functional impairment. Expand

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
Obstructive sleep apnea and the prefrontal cortex: towards a comprehensive model linking nocturnal upper airway obstruction to daytime cognitive and behavioral deficits
TLDR
A causal model by which to understand psychological effects among OSA patients is outlined, proposing that sleep disruption and blood gas abnormalities prevent sleep‐related restorative processes, and further induce chemical and structural central nervous system cellular injury. Expand
Neurobehavioral Functioning in Obstructive Sleep Apnea: Differential Effects of Sleep Quality, Hypoxemia and Subjective Sleepiness
TLDR
Patients who had high levels of subjective sleepiness had poorer performances on a complex task of executive functioning and higher levels of tension-anxiety, implying a differential effect of sleep-disordered breathing on domains of neuropsychological functioning. Expand
Neuropsychological dysfunction in sleep apnea.
TLDR
Within the sleep apnea group, hypoxemia severity was significantly correlated with deficits on measures of motor and perceptual-organizational ability and the overall level of performance reflected only moderate impairment. Expand
Severe obstructive sleep apnea--II: Associated psychopathology and psychosocial consequences.
TLDR
Most patients showed cognitive impairment; 76% had suspected or mild to severe deficits in terms of thinking, perception, memory, communication, or the ability to learn new information, resulting in a greater potential for being distractible, confused, and irritable. Expand
Factors impairing daytime performance in patients with sleep apnea/hypopnea syndrome.
TLDR
It was showed that the frequency of breathing irregularities and the extent of both sleep disruption and nocturnal hypoxemia are important in determining daytime function in patients with sleep apnea/hypopnea syndrome. Expand
Sleep and its disorders.
TLDR
Therapeutic naps, medications, and supportive therapy are recommended for narcolepsy and hypersomnia; continuous positive airway pressure, weight loss, surgery, and oral devices are the common treatments for sleep apnea. Expand
Does cognitive dysfunction conform to a distinctive pattern in obstructive sleep apnea syndrome?
TLDR
A cross‐sectional comparative study aimed to verify whether neuropsychological performance of untreated OSA patients conforms to a distinctive pattern and found a bimodal distribution of cognitive performance in OSA group, which was divided into two clusters having better and worse performance on a battery of 10 cognitive indexes.

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
