ConclusionsThe use of a particular method of slow wave detection needs to be adjusted to the objectives of a given study: to detect all slow waves, but also numerous false positives can be achieved using the fast frequency approach. Neural network pattern recognition method alone can detect slow waves with the lowest false-positive rate, that can be further minimized with the use of combination of other methods.Graphical Abstract

[Melatonin: Physiological and pharmacological aspects related to sleep: The interest of a prolonged-release formulation (Circadin®) in insomnia]. Encephale. 2018 Aug 11;: Authors: Quera-Salva MA, Claustrat B Abstract Melatonin is a hormone secreted by the pineal gland. It displays a very marked nycthohemeral rhythm, which is entrained to the light dark cycle.

This study examines the proportion and context of family-based interventions to prevent childhood obesity that promote child sleep. We drew on data from a recent systematic review and content analysis of family-based interventions for childhood obesity prevention published between 2008 and 2015, coupled with new data on sleep promotion strategies, designs, and measures. Out of 119 eligible family-based interventions to prevent childhood obesity, 24 (20%) promoted child sleep. In contrast, 106 (89%) interventions targeted diet, 97 (82%) targeted physical activity, and 63 (53%) targeted media use in children. Most interventi...
