Degree centrality of key brain regions of attention networks in children with primary nocturnal enuresis: A resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging study.

Degree centrality of key brain regions of attention networks in children with primary nocturnal enuresis: A resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging study. Int J Dev Neurosci. 2019 Oct 12;: Authors: Jiang K, Yi Y, Ding L, Li H, Li Y, Yang M, Zheng A Abstract Primary nocturnal enuresis (PNE) is always associated with attention impairment, some of which even could develop to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. The mechanism of attention impairment is not clear, especially lacking of objective indicators of neuroimaging. The aim of this study is to explore the possible functional imaging mechanism of impaired attention in PNE children. A total of 26 PNE children and 26 age-matched normal controls were recruited. Resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging (rs-fMRI) was performed on these children. Degree centrality (DC) of key brain regions of DAN (lFEF, rFEF, lIFG, rIFG, lIPS, rIPS), VAN (TPJ, VFC) and DMN (PCC, aMPFC, lAG, rAG) were calculated and compared between PNE and normal children. And the correlations between DC values and attention behavioral results were measured. Compared with normal controls, PNE children exhibited lower DC value in the right frontal eye field (rFEF), left inferior parietal sulcus (lIPS), right inferior parietal sulcus (rIPS), temporal parietal junction (TPJ) and left angular gyrus (lAG). The correct number of continuous performance test (CPT) in the PNE group was significantly lower than the normal co...

As a parent of two, I live by a checklist during the back-to-school season. One, because I enjoy checking items off the list, and two, because I know in order to make my children feel secure in the new academic year I need to ensure they have the tools to prevail with confidence. To successfully do this, there are some key items not related to school supplies or bus routes that parents should consider including on their annual checklist.  If you are like me, every year you make sure your children get their “back to school sports physical.” This is a necessity and is probably at the top of your to-do list &...

CONCLUSION: Our findings suggest that psychiatric disorders affect a significant number of children and adolescents. Prevalence estimates and identification of sources of heterogeneity have important implications to service providers and modifications are needed in mental health services in the community.

ConclusionChildren with AR had a higher incidence and subsequent risk of NE. The risk of NE was greater for boys, younger children, and those with more frequent health utilization for AR symptoms.背景虽然存有争议, 但过敏与遗尿 (NE) 之间存在相关性这一观点迄今已近一个世纪之久。变应性鼻炎 (AR) 相关性睡眠呼吸疾病往往导致睡眠微觉醒、睡眠效率下降、睡眠模式及行为改变。NE是儿童常见睡眠疾病。据此, 本研究旨在探讨 AR患儿NE发生率及其风险。方法该项基于人群的队列研究, 共纳入2000年至2012年间台湾AR患儿327,928...

Introduction: Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a common behavior disorder that affects school age children. Approximately 5-7% of school-age children worldwide are diagnosed with ADHD. The pathophysiology of ADHD is complex, with some sleep disorders frequently reported as co-morbid conditions. These include obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), periodic limb movement disorder, and enuresis. OSA is a leading co-morbid condition to ADHD, and may even be a main contributor as repetitive hypoxemia and hypercapnia at night is associated with cognitive dysfunction during the day.

There is ongoing debate about whether nocturnal enuresis (NE) is affected by the presence of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children. Clarifying this relationship could categorize them as a separate entity, potentially requiring a different management from enuretic children without ADHD.
