Teens With Bedtimes, or Who Are Attuned to Body Cues, Get More Sleep Teens With Bedtimes, or Who Are Attuned to Body Cues, Get More Sleep

Teens whose parents set their bedtimes, and those who go to sleep on their own when they're tired, may get more rest than peers who only go to sleep after they've finished homework or socializing online, a recent study suggests.Reuters Health Information

Authors: Yoon EJ, Lee JY, Nam H, Kim HJ, Jeon B, Jeong JM, Kim YK Abstract BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: To identify a metabolic network reflecting neurodegeneration in patients with idiopathic rapid eye movement (REM) sleep behavior disorder (iRBD). METHODS: We recruited a prospective cohort comprising patients with de novo Parkinson's disease (PD) with probable REM sleep behavior disorder (PDRBD, n=21), polysomnography-confirmed iRBD patients (n=28), and age-matched healthy controls (HC) (n=24). PDRBD-related spatial covariance pattern (PDRBD-RP) were determined from 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose PET images of the PDRBD g...

Authors: Zhang S, Zhang W, Zhou G Abstract Stroke causes disability and high mortality, while it can be prevented by increasing public awareness of risk factors. The common known risk factors are hypertension, atrial fibrillation, heart failure, smoking, alcohol consumption, low physical activity, overweight and hypercholesterolemia. However, the deep understanding of risk factors is limited. Moreover, more risk factor emerges in recent years. To further increase the awareness of risk factors for stroke prevention, this review indicates the reasonable application of antihypertensive agents according to the age-depe...

ConclusionIn patients with paroxysmal AF and obstructive sleep apnea, the signal-averaged positive P wave area is greater during certain respiratory events than during wakefulness. This finding may reflect the acute impact on right atrial volume of increased venous return associated with respiratory events and could be useful to assess AF risk in sleep apnea and to monitor response to treatment.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewIn this review, we aim to integrate the most recent research highlighting alterations in sleep slow-wave activity (SWA), and impairments in neuroplasticity in major depressive disorder (MDD) into a novel model of disorder maintenance.Recent FindingsSleep homeostasis has been shown to be impaired in MDD, with a subset of individuals also demonstrating impaired SWA. SWA is considered a marker of the homeostatic regulation of sleep, and is implicated in the downscaling of synaptic strength in the context of maintaining homeostatic plasticity. Individuals with MDD have been shown to exhibit impairments...

ConclusionsAerobic capacity and peak exercise D[a-v]O2 are impaired in obese OSA patients, suggesting abnormal peripheral oxygen extraction. EAT thickness is an independent marker of post-exercise HRR, which is a noninvasive marker of autonomic nerve dysfunction accompanying poor cardiovascular prognosis in obese patients.

Authors: Liakakis G Abstract Subcortical small-vessel disease (SSVD) is a disorder that has been fully described in clinical, neuropathological and imaging aspects. It is considered as the most prevalent ischemic CNS disorder and has been associated to arterial hypertension, diabetes mellitus, dyslipidemia and obstructive sleep apnea. The hallmark of SSVD is the ischemic white matter lesions which can be presented as lacunar infracts and global brain hypoperfusion in a common and homogeneous subtype of vascular cognitive impairment (VCI) which is often unrecognized. The special nature and course of SSVD offers the ...

Authors: Malegiannaki AC, Katsarou D, Liolios A, Zisi V Abstract Individuals with Down Syndrome (DS) are commonly characterized by unique neurocognitive and neurobehavioural profiles that emerge within specific stages in the developmental continuum. A plethora of studies have confirmed DS's relationship to premature aging and subsequent cognitive decline. Due to having three copies of the amyloid precursor protein (APP) gene which results in amyloid-beta plaque deposition, the cognitive decline often resembles the decline observed in Alzheimer's disease. More specifically, as individuals with DS mature in age (>...
