As someone shared on yesterday’s coaching call in Conscious Growth Club, AppSumo.com is offering a Black Friday special on a lifetime subscription to brain.fm today, so it’s $37 instead of $149. I’m not an affiliate. I’m just a fan of brain.fm. I first tried this service in early October after a fellow CGC member recommended it, and I’ve been using it nearly every day since then.

AbstractNeuropathic pain is associated with sleep disturbances, and in turn poor sleep quality leads to increased pain sensitivity, so it is essential to assess sleep alongside neuropathic pain. Responses to drugs are inconsistent and identifying the best treatment option that will reduce pain and improve sleep quality remains challenging for clinicians. Anticonvulsants such as pregabalin and gabapentin improve neuropathic pain and have a positive effect on comorbid sleep disturbances. Opioids and antidepressants are effective in reducing pain but can exacerbate sleep disturbances.Funding: Pfizer, Italy.

Lipton, Mindy J. Katz, Jennifer E. Graham-Engeland Neuroticism is strongly implicated in the development of sleep impairment and sleep disorders such as insomnia. However, it is unclear if neuroticism is a direct predictor of sleep, and/or if it moderates associations between related psychological processes (e.g., rumination and negative affect, or NA) and sleep in daily life. We investigated: 1) neuroticism as a between-person predictor o...

Idiopathic REM sleep behaviour disorder and neurodegeneration — an updateIdiopathic REM sleep behaviour disorder and neurodegeneration — an update, Published online: 24 November 2017; doi:10.1038/nrneurol.2017.157Idiopathic rapid eye movement (REM) sleep behavioural disorder (RBD) is now recognized as an early marker of α-synucleinopathies. Here, Högl and colleagues review potential biomarkers for RBD and summarize the evidence for a prodromal stage, which might enable disease-modifying intervention. In light of these advances, they reconceptualize idiopathic RBD as isolated RBD.
