Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia and currently there are no effective disease-modifying treatments available. Hallmark symptoms of AD include impaired hippocampus-dependent episodic memory and disrupted sleep and circadian rhythms. The pathways connecting these symptoms are of particular interest because it is well established that sleep and circadian disruption can impair hippocampus-dependent learning and memory. In rodents, these procedures also markedly suppress… 
A New Perspective on the Treatment of Alzheimer's Disease and Sleep Deprivation-Related Consequences: Can Curcumin Help?
Sleep disturbances, as well as sleep-wake rhythm disorders, are characteristic symptoms of Alzheimer's disease (AD) that may head the other clinical signs of this neurodegenerative disease.
Sleep and its regulation: An emerging pathogenic and treatment frontier in Alzheimer’s disease
TLDR
How sleep interacts with AD pathophysiology is discussed and, critically, whether sleep impairments can be targeted to modify the disease course in a subgroup of affected AD patients is discussed.
Adult hypothalamic neurogenesis and sleep-wake dysfunction in aging.
TLDR
It is proposed that hypothalamic neurogenic processes are vital for maintaining the proper functioning of the hypothalamic sleep-wake and circadian systems in the face of regulatory challenges and whether neuro-regenerative approaches, including pharmacological and non-pharmacological stimulation of endogenous neural stem and progenitor cells in hypothalamic Neurogenic niches, can be used for mitigating sleep- wake and other hypothalamic dysfunctions in aging.
Concise Review: Regulatory Influence of Sleep and Epigenetics on Adult Hippocampal Neurogenesis and Cognitive and Emotional Function
TLDR
The functions of adult‐born DG neurons are discussed, the epigenetic regulation of adult DG neurogenesis is described, overlaps in how sleep and epigenetic modifications impact adult DG Neurogenesis and memory consolidation are identified, and ways of using sleep or epigenetic interventions as therapies for neurodegenerative and psychiatric disorders are suggested.
Alzheimer's disease and sleep disturbances: a review.
TLDR
The evolution of knowledge about the potential bidirectional relationships between AD and sleep disturbances is described, exploring recent large prospective studies and meta-analyses and studies of the possible mechanisms through which sleep and the neurodegenerative process could be associated.
Sleep Characteristics and Cognitive Function in Older Adults Without Dementia: The CABLE Study.
TLDR
Findings showed sleep characteristics were associated with cognitive functions and sleep habits (duration, bedtime) had U-shaped associations with cognition.
Relationships between objectives sleep parameters and brain amyloid load in subjects at risk to Alzheimer's disease: the INSIGHT-preAD Study.
TLDR
Actigraphic sleep parameters were associated with cortical brain amyloid load in participants at risk to develop AD in the INSIGHT-pre AD cohort.
Alzheimer's Disease Model System Using Drosophila.
  • L. Tsuda, Y. Lim

    Advances in experimental medicine and biology
  • 2018
TLDR
Recently, large numbers of AD model system have been established using Drosophila melanogaster by overproducing Aβ molecules in the brain to reflect some of the symptoms along with AD, and "pros and cons" of Drosophile AD models are pointed out.
Improvement in neurogenesis and memory function by administration of Passiflora incarnata L. extract applied to sleep disorder in rodent models
TLDR
The results suggest that PF lead high hippocampal neurogenesis in the animals even in inherited sleep-disturbed animals and identify PF as a potential therapy for enhancing memory functions and prevention of Alzheimer's disease through actions on the hippocampus.
Actigraphy for Assessing Light Effects on Sleep and Circadian Activity Rhythm in Alzheimer's Dementia: A Narrative Review.
TLDR
Fusing knowledge across complementary research disciplines has the potential to critically advance the understanding of the biological input of light on health and may contribute to architectural lighting designs in hospitals, as well as the authors' homes and work environments.

Sleep and adult neurogenesis: implications for cognition and mood.
TLDR
Evidence from correlation, deprivation, and stimulation studies that sleep may be among those factors that regulate hippocampal neurogenesis is critically examined, suggesting that sleep loss impairs hippocampal Neurogenesis by the presence of wake-dependent factors, rather than by the absence of sleep-specific processes.
Sleep deprivation and hippocampal vulnerability: changes in neuronal plasticity, neurogenesis and cognitive function
TLDR
By impairing hippocampal plasticity and function, chronically restricted and disrupted sleep contributes to cognitive disorders and psychiatric diseases.
Adult hippocampal neurogenesis and its role in Alzheimer's disease
TLDR
Dysfunctional neurogenesis resulting from early subtle disease manifestations may in turn exacerbate neuronal vulnerability to AD and contribute to memory impairment, whereas enhanced Neurogenesis may be a compensatory response and represent an endogenous brain repair mechanism.
Alzheimer's Disease and Hippocampal Adult Neurogenesis; Exploring Shared Mechanisms
TLDR
The current work suggesting that neuronal differentiation is defective in Alzheimer's disease, leading to dysfunction of the dentate gyrus is reviewed, and alterations in critical signals regulating neurogenesis, such as presenilin-1, Notch 1, soluble amyloid precursor protein, CREB, and β-catenin underlie dysfunctional neuroGenesis in Alzheimer’s disease are reviewed.
Sleep: A Novel Mechanistic Pathway, Biomarker, and Treatment Target in the Pathology of Alzheimer's Disease?
TLDR
A role for NREM sleep disruption as a novel factor linking cortical Aβ to impaired hippocampus-dependent memory consolidation and the possibility of sleep as a new treatment target in aging, affording preventative and therapeutic benefits is evaluated.
Candidate mechanisms underlying the association between sleep-wake disruptions and Alzheimer’s disease
TLDR
Findings suggest the existence of a mechanistic interplay between AD pathogenesis and disrupted sleep-wake cycles, which is able to accelerate the development and progression of this disease.
Animal studies on the role of sleep in memory: from behavioral performance to molecular mechanisms.
TLDR
Experimental studies indicate that cognitive impairments as a consequence of sleep deprivation appear to be most severe with learning and memory processes that require the hippocampus, which suggests that this brain region is particularly sensitive to the consequences of sleep loss.
Sleep and Alzheimer disease pathology—a bidirectional relationship
TLDR
Evidence is emerging that the sleep–wake cycle directly influences levels of Aβ in the brain, and sleep and neurodegenerative disease may influence each other in many ways that have important implications for the diagnosis and treatment of AD.
Disruption of the Sleep-Wake Cycle and Diurnal Fluctuation of β-Amyloid in Mice with Alzheimer’s Disease Pathology
TLDR
It is suggested that changes in the sleep-wake cycle may be caused by Aβ accumulation, andSleep-wake behavior and diurnal fluctuation of Aβ in the central nervous system may be functional and biochemical indicators, respectively, of A β-associated pathology.
Sleep deprivation impairs memory, tau metabolism, and synaptic integrity of a mouse model of Alzheimer's disease with plaques and tangles
TLDR
The study underlines the importance of SD as a chronic stressor, which by modulating biochemical processes influences the development of memory impairments and AD neuropathologies and Correction of SD could be a viable therapeutic strategy to prevent the onset or slow the progression of AD in individuals bearing this risk factor.
