Both preterm birth and sleep disordered breathing (SDB) affect sleep in children. We compared the effects of SDB on sleep macro-architecture and micro-architecture in children born preterm (N = 50) and children born at term (N = 50). We hypothesized that sleep would be more disrupted in children born preterm.

The present study explored associations between sleep and children's dual-task performance using cognitive-motor dual tasks (eg, walking and talking). Previous research with older adults indicated cor...
Although respiratory symptoms, including wheezing, are common in preterm-born subjects, the natural history of the wheezing phenotypes and the influence of early-life factors and characteristics on ph...
Compared to their term-born peers, children born very preterm are at risk for poorer cognitive, academic and behavioral outcomes, however this finding may have been confounded by lower parental educat...
Our own experiences with disturbances to sleep demonstrate its crucial role in the recovery of cognitive functions. This importance is likely enhanced in the recovery from stroke; both in terms of its...
Children born preterm are at risk for developing reading difficulties and for decrements in other cognitive skills compared to children born at term.
The purpose of this study is to identify specific chemotherapy-related changes in sleep stages/architecture that may relate to an increase in fatigue in individuals with cancer. The resea...
Sleep architecture is deeply altered in intensive care unit (ICU patients). Among factors involved in poor sleep quality are environmental factors, such as light and noise, which are an u...
Major depressive disorder is associated with several sleep Polysomnograph (PSG) findings: (1) impaired sleep continuity; (2) non-REM (NREM) changes; and (3) enhanced rapid eye movement (RE...
Multiple clinical studies have indicated that obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), the most common chronic sleep disorder, may affect neurocognitive function, and that treatment for continuous p...
The purpose of this prospective, participant-blinded trial is to determine the changes in sleep architecture in a cohort of subjects who have undergone deep brain stimulation (DBS) surgery...
The art and science of designing buildings and structures. More generally, it is the design of the total built environment, including town planning, urban design, and landscape architecture.
Works consisting of drawings of architecture and architectural projects, whether the project was executed or not. (Art & Architecture Thesaurus, 1990, v.2)
Works on the art and science of designing buildings and structures. More generally, works on the design of the total built environment, including town planning, urban design, and landscape architecture.
Architecture, exterior and interior design, and construction of facilities other than hospitals, e.g., dental schools, medical schools, ambulatory care clinics, and specified units of health care facilities. The concept also includes architecture, design, and construction of specialized contained, controlled, or closed research environments including those of space labs and stations.
Excessive periodic leg movements during sleep that cause micro-arousals and interfere with the maintenance of sleep. This condition induces a state of relative sleep deprivation which manifests as excessive daytime hypersomnolence. The movements are characterized by repetitive contractions of the tibialis anterior muscle, extension of the toe, and intermittent flexion of the hip, knee and ankle.

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...
Pediatrics is the general medicine of childhood. Because of the developmental processes (psychological and physical) of childhood, the involvement of parents, and the social management of conditions at home and at school, pediatrics is a specialty. With ...
