Vulnerability markers for affective disorders have focused on stress hormone regulation and sleep. Among rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, increased REM pressure and elevated REM density are promising candidates for vulnerability markers. Regarding nonREM sleep, a deficit in amount of and latency until slow wave sleep during the first half of the night is a characteristic for depression. To further elucidate whether changes in the microstructure of sleep may serve as vulnerability markers we… CONTINUE READING
