Experimental Changes in Children's Sleep Duration and Timing: Effect on Obesity and Type 2 Diabetes Risk

Pediatric obesity is considered an epidemic and is associated with a number of comorbidities, including type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Importantly, ethnic minority children and those fro...

Sleep Timing and Circadian Preferences in A Sample of Egyptian Patients With Hepatic Cirrhosis

Individuals with hepatic cirrhosis (n=50) and healthy controls (n=30) were recruited. Sleep quality, sleep timing parameters and circadian preference were evaluated using the Pittsburgh Sl...

Impact of Sleep and Meal Timing on Food Intake Regulation

This study will test the hypothesis that a late sleep (Ls) and/or late meal (Lm) behavioral pattern, with equal sleep duration, will promote positive energy balance and insulin resistance ...

Circadian Regulation of Sleep in Habitual Short Sleepers and Long Sleepers

Routine sleep duration varies greatly among individuals. The biological meaning of this variation is unknown. The term circadian rhythm refers to the biological clock that regulates the ...

Predicting Sleep, Smoking, and Lung Health Disparities in African American Adults

This 5-year prospective, observational study will: (1) determine the individual, social, and environmental predictors of sleep duration, quality, latency, efficiency, timing and regularity...

Later high school start times associated with longer actigraphic sleep duration in adolescents.

High school start times (SSTs) directly impact adolescents' sleep timing and duration. This study investigated the associations between SSTs and actigraphically-measured 24-hour sleep duration, sleep ...

Shorter sleep duration is associated with reduced cognitive development at two years of age.

Both short sleep duration and sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) are associated with poor neurocognitive development. However, the co-contributions of short sleep duration and SDB on neurodevelopment in...

Rethinking the sleep-health link.

Sleep is important for the physical, social and mental well-being of both children and adults. In this paper, we discuss the need to consider sleep as a multidimensional construct and as a component o...

Association between sleep duration during pregnancy and gestational diabetes mellitus: a meta-analysis.

Sleep is critical for glucose metabolism. Pregnant women often have sleep disturbances and extreme sleep duration. Investigations of the relationship between sleep duration during pregnancy and gestat...

Neighborhood Disadvantage is Associated with Actigraphy-Assessed Sleep Continuity and Short Sleep Duration.

Neighborhood disadvantage has been linked to poor sleep. However, the extant research has primarily focused on self-reported assessments of sleep and neighborhood characteristics. The current study ex...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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)

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.

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)
