The tendency for adolescents to have restricted sleep has been examined in numerous studies; however, the impact of sleep restriction on adolescents' neural activity during sleep (measured by electroencephalography (EEG)) is less extensively researched, particularly regarding sleep spindles.

Schönauer and Pöhlchen introduce the reader to sleep spindles, brain oscillations that occur during nREM sleep that are thought to function in the stabilization of memories.
There is contradictory evidence on whether sleep need decreases across adolescence. We investigated this question longitudinally with a dose-response design to test the effects of varied sleep duratio...
Nightmares are a common sleep disorder, defined as highly disturbing mentation which usually awakens the individual from rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. While nightmares are mainly a REM sleep phenome...
Sleep is a reliable indicator of cognitive health in older individuals. Sleep spindles (SS) are non-rapid-eye-movement (NREM) sleep oscillations implicated in sleep-dependent learning. Their generatio...
The consolidation of sleep-dependent memories is mediated by an interplay of cortical slow oscillations (SOs) and thalamo-cortical sleep spindles. Whereas an enhancement of SOs with auditory closed-lo...
The aim of this project is to investigate whether enhancing sleep intensity locally in the prefrontal cortex (PFC) can counteract a deterioration of cognitive control and therefore the pre...
The aim of this study is to examine the neurobehavioural and glucose metabolic responses to two successive cycles of sleep restriction and recovery in adolescents, and to determine the ben...
The purpose of this study is to examine the consequences of chronic sleep restriction on nighttime sleep, daytime alertness, performance and memory functions, and metabolic and cardiovascu...
This study includes two consecutive sub-trials. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is treatment of choice for Insomnia. One of the most important treatment Components in CBT for insomnia ...
Young subjects and patients with nocturnal respiratory disorders are frequently involved in sleep-related accidents. This study assess the impact of chronic sleep restriction (4 hr of slee...
Periods of sleep manifested by changes in EEG activity and certain behavioral correlates; includes Stage 1: sleep onset, drowsy sleep; Stage 2: light sleep; Stages 3 and 4: delta sleep, light sleep, deep sleep, telencephalic sleep.
Dyssomnias (i.e., insomnias or hypersomnias) associated with dysfunction of internal sleep mechanisms or secondary to a sleep-related medical disorder (e.g., sleep apnea, post-traumatic sleep disorders, etc.). (From Thorpy, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, p187)
Movements or behaviors associated with sleep, sleep stages, or partial arousals from sleep that may impair sleep maintenance. Parasomnias are generally divided into four groups: arousal disorders, sleep-wake transition disorders, parasomnias of REM sleep, and nonspecific parasomnias. (From Thorpy, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, p191)
A sleep disorder of central nervous system origin characterized by prolonged nocturnal sleep and periods of daytime drowsiness. Affected individuals experience difficulty with awakening in the morning and may have associated sleep drunkenness, automatic behaviors, and memory disturbances. This condition differs from narcolepsy in that daytime sleep periods are longer, there is no association with CATAPLEXY, and the multiple sleep latency onset test does not record sleep-onset rapid eye movement sleep. (From Chokroverty, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, pp319-20; Psychiatry Clin Neurosci 1998 Apr:52(2):125-129)
Conditions characterized by disturbances of usual sleep patterns or behaviors. Sleep disorders may be divided into three major categories: DYSSOMNIAS (i.e. disorders characterized by insomnia or hypersomnia), PARASOMNIAS (abnormal sleep behaviors), and sleep disorders secondary to medical or psychiatric disorders. (From Thorpy, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, p187)
Sleep disorders disrupt sleep during the night, or cause sleepiness during the day, caused by physiological or psychological factors. The common ones include snoring and sleep apnea, insomnia, parasomnias, sleep paralysis, restless legs syndrome, circa...
