Abnormal Sleep Behaviours Across the Spectrum of Alzheimer's Disease Severity: Influence of APOE Genotypes and Lewy Bodies.

Summary of "Abnormal Sleep Behaviours Across the Spectrum of Alzheimer's Disease Severity: Influence of APOE Genotypes and Lewy Bodies."

The Apolipoprotein (APOE) ε4 allele is a well-known risk factor for Alzheimer's Disease (AD), and sleep disturbances are commonly associated with AD. However, few studies have investigated the relationship between APOE ε4 and abnormal sleep patterns (N+) in AD.

High frequency of getting out of bed in patients with Alzheimer's disease monitored by non-wearable actigraphy.

Sleep disturbances in patients with Alzheimer's disease have not been systematically evaluated, because sleep monitoring has proved difficult. Our goal was to quantitatively characterize sleep disturb...

Cerebrospinal Fluid Orexin Levels and Nocturnal Sleep Disruption in Alzheimer's Disease Patients Showing Neuropsychiatric Symptoms.

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia. It is characterized by a progressive deterioration of cognition, frequently associated with neuropsychiatric symptoms (NPS). Among NPS, sl...

Obstructive Sleep Apnea and Longitudinal Alzheimer's disease biomarker changes.

To determine the effect of self-reported clinical diagnosis of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) on longitudinal changes in brain amyloid-PET and CSF-biomarkers (Aβ42, T-tau and P-tau) in cognitively nor...

Severity of obstructive sleep apnea and extension of coronary artery disease.

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is highly prevalent among patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). The relationship between the severity of OSA and the severity of CAD has not been entirely establis...

Sleep-Wake Regulation and the Hallmarks of the Pathogenesis of Alzheimer's Disease.

While efficient treatments for Alzheimer's disease (AD) remain elusive, a growing body of research has highlighted sleep-wake regulation as a potential modifiable factor to delay disease progression. ...

Quetiapine for the Treatment of Insomnia in Alzheimer's Disease

The primary hypothesis is that quetiapine will improve sleep in persons with Alzheimer's Disease (AD), with higher doses producing greater total sleep time and sleep efficiency.

Prevalence of Epilepsy and Sleep Wake Disorders in Alzheimer Disease

Alzheimer disease is the most common of the neurodegenerative diseases. Epilepsy and sleep wake disorders are co-morbid conditions of Alzheimer disease. The investigators propose a prospec...

A Dyadic Sleep Intervention for Alzheimer's Disease Patients and Their Caregivers

Studies consistently show the negative health impact of sleep problems in both Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients and their caregivers. However, only a few sleep interventions have been con...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Abnormal structures located chiefly in distal dendrites and, along with NEUROFIBRILLARY TANGLES and SENILE PLAQUES, constitute the three morphological hallmarks of ALZHEIMER DISEASE. Neuropil threads are made up of straight and paired helical filaments which consist of abnormally phosphorylated microtubule-associated tau proteins. It has been suggested that the threads have a major role in the cognitive impairment seen in Alzheimer disease.

Abnormal behavioral or physiologic events that are associated with REM sleep, including REM SLEEP BEHAVIOR DISORDER.

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)

Simultaneous and continuous monitoring of several parameters during sleep to study normal and abnormal sleep. The study includes monitoring of brain waves, to assess sleep stages, and other physiological variables such as breathing, eye movements, and blood oxygen levels which exhibit a disrupted pattern with sleep disturbances.

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.
