Interaction of Chronic Sleep Restriction and Circadian Misalignment on Sleep and Neuro-Cognitive Performance

The primary objectives of the proposed experimental and modeling efforts are to quantify the influences of acute sleep deprivation (short-term homeostatic), chronic sleep restriction (long...

Impact of a Sleep Debt in Middle-Aged and Older Adults

This project has 6 aims. 1. To examine the impact of recurrent partial sleep loss in young, middle-aged and older men and women. Sleep will be restricted to 4 hours. 2. To...

Circadian Misalignment and Insulin Sensitivity

This study will evaluate the effect of circadian misalignment on insulin sensitivity in healthy lean subjects in a randomized cross-over design. Subjects will be admitted to the research f...

The Role of the Circadian System in Neurological Sleep-wake Disorders

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...

Sleep Length and Circadian Regulation in Humans

This research will examine why sleep restriction reduces the body clock's response to bright light. The results will enable the optimization of the bright light treatment of people who suf...

Impact of Sleep and Circadian Rhythms on Addiction Vulnerability in Adolescents.

Sleep homeostasis and circadian function are important maintaining factors for optimal health and well-being. Conversely, sleep and circadian disruptions are implicated in a variety of adverse health ...

Advancing the sleep/wake schedule impacts the sleep of African-Americans more than European-Americans.

There are differences in sleep duration between Blacks/African-Americans and Whites/European-Americans. Recently, we found differences between these ancestry groups in the circadian system, such as ci...

Sleep and cognitive performance of African-Americans and European-Americans before and during circadian misalignment produced by an abrupt 9-h delay in the sleep/wake schedule.

We conducted two studies of circadian misalignment in non-Hispanic African and European-Americans. In the first, the sleep/wake (light/dark) schedule was advanced 9 h, similar to flying east, and in t...

Sleep Patterns and Quality Are Associated with Severity of Obesity and Weight-Related Behaviors in Adolescents with Overweight and Obesity.

Inadequate sleep duration, sleep patterns, and sleep quality have been associated with metabolic, circadian, and behavioral changes that promote obesity. Adolescence is a period during which sleep hab...

Bone Turnover Markers After Sleep Restriction and Circadian Disruption: A Mechanism for Sleep-Related Bone Loss in Humans.

Sleep abnormalities are associated with low bone mineral density (BMD). Underlying mechanisms are unknown.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

A broad category of sleep disorders characterized by either hypersomnolence or insomnia. The three major subcategories include intrinsic (i.e., arising from within the body) (SLEEP DISORDERS, INTRINSIC), extrinsic (secondary to environmental conditions or various pathologic conditions), and disturbances of circadian rhythm. (From Thorpy, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, p187)

A nonapeptide that is found in neurons, peripheral organs, and plasma. This neuropeptide induces mainly delta sleep in mammals. In addition to sleep, the peptide has been observed to affect electrophysiological activity, neurotransmitter levels in the brain, circadian and locomotor patterns, hormonal levels, psychological performance, and the activity of neuropharmacological drugs including their withdrawal.

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.

Circadian rhythm signaling proteins that influence circadian clock by interacting with other circadian regulatory proteins and transporting them into the CELL NUCLEUS.
