Background: The harmful effects of shift work on heart function shave been reported in previous studies. However, the impact of shift work on cortical functions as recorded on EEG has not been widely reported. We aimed to investigate the possible harmful effects of sleep deprivation secondary to shift working on brain function by recording the EEG in work shift health workers. Method: Sixteen healthy health workers participated in this study. The study was conducted in Abuja, Nigeria, from… 
Insomnia and Related Anxiety Among Medical Students
The study concluded that the prevalence of insomnia among medical students, Majmaah University is high and there is a significant association between insomnia and anxiety.


Mapping Slow Waves by EEG Topography and Source Localization: Effects of Sleep Deprivation
The aim of this study was to assess the topography of EEG power and the activation of brain structures during slow wave sleep under normal conditions and after sleep deprivation, and to identify trait-like aspects in power maps and electrical sources.
Shift work sleep disorder: prevalence and consequences beyond that of symptomatic day workers.
It is suggested that individuals with shift work sleep disorder are at risk for significant behavioral and health-related morbidity associated with their sleep-wake symptomatology.
The Effect of Foot Bath Therapy on the Dynamics of Cortical Oscillatory Waves in Healthy Humans: An EEG Study
Cortical gamma waves of the EEG could be used as measures of functional activation of the brain, related to footbath therapy, and increased after foot bathing therapy compared to the EEG tracing obtained before therapy.
Delta wave power: an independent sleep phenotype or epiphenomenon?
It seems unlikely that a single EEG measure will be reliable as a marker of sleepiness for all conditions, because most sleep regulatory substances are cerebral vasodilators and blood flow affects EEG δ power.
Effects of sleep and sleep deprivation on interleukin-6, growth hormone, cortisol, and melatonin levels in humans.
Sleep stage analyses indicated that the nocturnal increase in IL-6 occurred in association with stage 1-2 sleep and rapid eye movement sleep, but levels during slow wave sleep were not different from those while awake.
Shift Work Disorder in Nurses – Assessment, Prevalence and Related Health Problems
It is argued that three symptom-based questions used in the present study adequately assess shift work disorder in epidemiological studies.
The impact of shift work on the psychological and physical health of nurses in a general hospital: a comparison between rotating night shifts and day shifts
The results suggest that nurses with rotating night schedule need special attention due to the higher risk for both job dissatisfaction and undesirable health effects.
Time-frequency analysis of short-lasting modulation of EEG induced by TMS during wake, sleep deprivation and sleep
The occurrence of dynamic changes in spontaneous electroencephalogram (EEG) rhythms in the awake state or sleep is highly variable. These rhythms can be externally modulated during transcranial
The effect of foot reflexotherapy on the dynamics of cortical oscillatory waves in healthy humans: An EEG study.
Investigation of the effect of foot reflexotherapy on EEG rhythms in healthy humans found that cortical beta and gamma waves of the EEG could be used as measures of functional activation of the brain, related to foot reflex therapy.
Shift work disorder and related health problems among nurses working in a tertiary care hospital, Bangalore, South India
A high prevalence of SWD symptoms calls for a focus on the antecedents of work related sleep problems and appropriate intervention, such as behavioral changes, clockwise rotating shifts, and treatment.
