This study used an operant conditioning animal model to examine the interaction between tinnitus and auditory vigilant attention as well as auditory selective attention. Tinnitus was induced in 90-day-old rats by a unilateral exposure to band-limited noise (120 dB, SPL). Tinnitus testing began 90 days following exposure; afterward animals were divided into 3 groups: Unexposed controls without tinnitus, Exposed without tinnitus, and Exposed with tinnitus. Tinnitus was evident in the vicinity of 20 kHz. Vigilant attention was quantified by the behavioral (operant) response to unpredictable sound transitions signaling changes...

Separating from people seems like a blast of cold air. I suppose I feel the anguish of lossI belong to that category of people who, after a dinner, after a party, are the last to leave. It ’s hard to say why – it’s not clear even to me. I know that my hosts are tired and would like to go to sleep.

This study is part of a growing body of research that suggests a sleep-deprived brain might be more vulnerable to Alzheimer’s disease. Animal studies have shown levels of plaque-forming A-beta plummet during sleep. Other research points to the fact that a sleeping brain runs the “clean cycle” (a reference to a dishwasher) to remove the day’s metabolic debris, specifically A-beta plaques. A study done in 2017 found that even one sleepless night appears to leave behind an excess of the troublesome protein fragment. While this is all impressive research, scientists believe there are still plenty of gap...

Abstract Narcolepsy and Other 'Central Disorders of Hypersomnolence' Abstract. 'Excessive daytime sleepiness', 'hypersomnia' in the sense of prolonged sleep need, 'tiredness' or 'fatigue' are frequent complaints in primary care, requiring a careful separation in view of a correct diagnostic. After exclusion of various internistic and neurologic causes by clinical and laboratory investigations and after exclusion of sleep apnoea syndrome or other causes of disturbed sleep by polysomnography, the ambiguous group of 'Central Disorders of Hypersomnolence' remains, including narcolepsy with and without cataplexy, idiop...
