The current study investigated the functional connectivity changes of the right anterior insula after partial sleep deprivation in young and old adults by using resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging. We found a significant age × deprivation interaction effect on the functional connectivity between the right ventral anterior insula and t...

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...
