Circadian rhythms refer to biological rhythms that have an endogenous period length of approximately 24 hr. However, not much is known about the variance in the development of the sleep-wake rhythm. ...
To explore the association between vitamin D in cord blood or in venous blood and children's sleep-wake patterns at two years of age.
The usage of wrist-worn wearables to detect sleep-wake states remains a formidable challenge, particularly among individuals with disordered sleep. We developed a novel and unbiased data-driven method...
Patients with insomnia frequently report disturbing, or being disturbed by, their bedpartner. We aimed to (1) characterize how individuals with insomnia and their bedpartners influence each other's sl...
Experimental investigation of sleep-wake dynamics in animals is an important part of pharmaceutical development. Typically, it involves recording of electroencephalogram, electromyogram, locomotor act...
The development of sleep-wake behavior is considered to be one of the most important maturation processes occurring in the first year of life. Sleep-wake behavior is related to neurobehavi...
The aim of this study is to investigate the role of the circadian system in patients with neurologic sleep-wake disorders. Therefore, overnight sleep will be distributed over 30 hours into...
International data indicate that approximately 10% of the elderly will be affected by sarcopenia, a multifactorial syndrome that leads to the progressive and generalized loss of mass and m...
Infant and maternal sleep in the postpartum are related, and influenced by the mother's understanding of infant sleep behavior, the environmental and social cues for sleep presented to the...
The purpose of this study is to analyze a multi-component sleep/wake protocol for optimization of environmental factors (noise, light, nursing activities) as well as non-environmental fact...
Abnormal sleep-wake schedule or pattern associated with the CIRCADIAN RHYTHM which affect the length, timing, and/or rigidity of the sleep-wake cycle relative to the day-night cycle.
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)
Parasomnias characterized by behavioral abnormalities that occur during the transition between wakefulness and sleep (or between sleep and wakefulness).
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.
Dyssomnias associated with disruption of the normal 24 hour sleep wake cycle secondary to travel (e.g., JET LAG SYNDROME), shift work, or other causes.
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...
