Sleep disorders are commonly under-recognized in the primary care setting and available screening tools are often are limited. The study inestigators hypothesize that the use of a novel su...
A randomized, controlled study to examine the effect of group treatment for insomnia (CBT-I) in an outpatient clinic compared with waiting list and treatment-as-usual (sleep-hygiene based ...
The main goal of this study is to assess whether use of earplugs has any effect on sleep, sleep apnea, and daytime sleepiness in individuals who snore.
People under stress, such as those caring for an ill family member, often have trouble with their sleep. The aim of this study is to see if reducing stress and changing a caregiver's slee...
This is an observational study to determine if the presentation of sensory stimulation during sleep can increase slow-wave activity during non-rapid eye movement sleep
What can eyes tell us about what happens during sleep? Their movements split sleep into two distinct states - rapid-eye-movement (REM) or non-REM sleep. A new study now reveals that periodic pupil co...
To investigate whether uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP) improves sleep quality in patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) using the Functional Outcomes of Sleep Questionnaire (FOSQ) and the Karoli...
Cognitive bias to sleep-related information is thought to be a core feature of sleep disturbances. The bias may enhance pre-sleep arousal, such as excessive worry about sleeplessness, which prevents p...
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...
Experimental studies over the last fifteen years established a role in sleep of the tuberal hypothalamic neurons that express melanin-concentrating hormone (MCH). Controversies still remain regarding ...
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)
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)
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.
