This study will assess the feasibility of conducting sleep studies in a clinical research unit environment. In addition, the sensitivity of polysomnography and mobile actigraphy technolog...
Sleep is a fundamental need for human and is associated with the working performance and the disease occurrence. Furthermore, the amount of people with sleep disorder or apnea increased la...
This study focuses on whether or not physical activity and sleep quality correlate with the health of prostate and breast cancer patients. The activity data will be acquired using wearable...
The purpose of this study is to compare a 2-lead frontal electroencephalogram recording to a formal polysomnography (PSG) in detecting sleep vs. wake and depth of sleep in both healthy and...
Menopausal women often complain of difficulty sleeping and the transition from pre- to postmenopausal status is associated with an incresase in self-reported sleep disturbance. Hot flashes...
To evaluate the utility of multimodal low-cost approaches including actigraphy, a wrist-worn device monitoring rest/activity cycles, in identifying patients with idiopathic REM sleep behavior disorder...
When assessing children's sleep using actigraphy, researchers usually rely on a sleep diary completed by a parent as an aid in scoring actigraphic data. However, parental nonadherence in completing th...
To examine the associations of sleep measures with hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) among individuals with and without type 2 diabetes.
The aim of this study is to compare sleep characteristics between women with premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and a control group. The data were extracted from an epidemiologic survey conducted in Sao Paul...
Despite the widespread use of actigraphy in pediatric sleep studies, there are currently no age-related normative data.
The time it takes to reach REM SLEEP. It is typically measured by POLYSOMNOGRAPHY or EEG as a part of various sleep pattern tests (e.g., multiple sleep latency test).
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 (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)
A sleep disorder characterized by grinding and clenching of the teeth and forceful lateral or protrusive jaw movements. Sleep bruxism may be associated with TOOTH INJURIES; TEMPOROMANDIBULAR JOINT DISORDERS; sleep disturbances; and other conditions.
Abnormal behavioral or physiologic events that are associated with REM sleep, including REM SLEEP BEHAVIOR DISORDER.
