Effects of Sleep Duration on Eating and Activity Behaviors

2014-07-23 21:11:25 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of the proposed study is to determine whether the amount children sleep is associated with changes in hormones, hunger, motivation to eat, and food intake. Fifty children 8-11 years old who sleep 9-10 hours per night will be enrolled for a 3-week study. For 1 week each, children will be asked to sleep their typical amount, increase their sleep by 1-½ hours, and decrease their sleep by 1-½ hours. Half of the children will be asked to increase their sleep first and half to decrease their sleep first. During each week, the following will be gathered: sleep duration (measured by actigraphy, which is a small device that measures sleep), levels of hormones measured through blood draws, self-reported hunger and appetite, food intake (measured by 3 days of 24-hour recall), how motivated children are to eat (measured using a computer activity), and child height and weight. We believe that when children sleep less they will show changes in hormones associated with hunger and appetite, report being hungrier, be more motivated to eat, and eat more food.

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...

Pre-sleep arousal can be associated with efficient processing of sleep-related information.

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...

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)

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. (From Thorpy, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, p187)
