Publication date: 20 October 2018Source: New Scientist, Volume 240, Issue 3200Author(s): My husband is a lark and I am an owl when it comes to our attitudes to bedtime. This leads to discussions about the ideal time to go to bed. He is convinced that the best sleep happens before midnight, while I believe that no matter when you fall asleep, you are advised to get 8 hours and whether it starts before midnight or after has no relevance to the quality of your sleep.

What do measles, tuberculosis, and grains have in common? For that matter, what do anthrax, influenza, and brucellosis also share in common with grains? All the conditions listed are examples of zoonoses, i.e., diseases contracted by humans from animals. When humans first invited domesticated grazing creatures–cows, sheep, goats–into our huts, adobe homes, or caves, often sleeping in the same room, using them for milk or food, we acquired many of their diseases. These diseases were unknown prior to the human domestication of grazing ruminants. The process of animal domestication changed the course of human civi...

Authors: Marinheiro R, Parreira L, Amador P, Mesquita D, Farinha J, Fonseca M, Duarte T, Fernandes A, Lopes C, Caria R Abstract Obstrutive sleep apnea (OSA) is a prevalent condition thought to increase in the future. Being mostly undiagnosed, the most serious complications are cardiovascular diseases, among which arrhythmias. Controversy remains as to whether OSA is a primary etiologic factor for ventricular arrhythmias, because of the high incidence of cardiovascular comorbidities in OSA patients. However, there is mostly a strong evidence of a relation between OSA and ventricular arrhythmias. A few mechanisms hav...

Authors: Olcese U Abstract The scientific study of the neural correlates of consciousness (NCC) has long relied on comparing conditions in which consciousness is normally present with others in which it is impaired. Brain lesions offer a unique opportunity to understand which anatomical networks are needed to sustain consciousness, but provide limited insights on the patterns of neural activity that can support conscious processing. Non-REM sleep, on the other hand, has long epitomized the typical case of a non-conscious yet fully active brain. Consequently, the differences in neural activity existing between wakef...
