CONCLUSION: Findings unequivocally establish that sleep disturbances are highly prevalent in SMs and veterans with TBI. However, studies testing the effectiveness of treatments for improving sleep in military groups with TBI have been limited and their results inconsistent. This review highlights a critical opportunity for advancing military medicine through future research aimed at identifying and testing sleep-focused treatments in SMs and veterans with combat-related TBI.

Authors: Kang SG, Kim YK Abstract Cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) is the treatment of choice for insomnia; however, it is not widely used due to a lack of experienced therapists and its relatively high clinical cost. Recently, Internet and mobile CBT-I have been developed to replace face-to-face CBT-I, and research on this topic has been increasing. In addition, attempts have been made to use wearable devices for sleep-wake estimation. Studies on digital CBT-I thus far have shown favorable treatment effects in general, but the problem of a high dropout rate has not been sufficiently improved. In a...

Epileptic activity without visible convulsions is common in Alzheimer's disease (AD) and may contribute adversely to the disease progress and symptoms. Transgenic mice with amyloid plaque pathology also display epileptic seizures, but those are too infrequent to assess the effect of anti-epileptic treatments. Besides spontaneous seizures, these mice also display frequent epileptic spiking in epidural EEG recordings, and these have provided a means to test potential drug treatment to AD-related epilepsy. However, the origin of EEG spikes in transgenic AD model mice has remained elusive, which makes it difficult to relate el...

Authors: Micarelli A, Viziano A, Lanzillotta A, Giorgino FM, Pisano C, Ruvolo G, Alessandrini M Abstract BACKGROUND: Marfan syndrome (MFS) is a rare autosomal dominant connective tissue disorder affecting virtually every organ. Sleep disturbances, associated to high collapsibility in upper airways, are common in MFS; daytime sleepiness could lead to reduction in attention and motor coordination, with detrimental effects on balance. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate otoneurological function in MFS patients, compared to healthy subjects, and to investigate possible correlations with sleep deprivation extent. METHODS: Fo...
