dt T Abstract Work stress and poor sleep are closely related in cross-sectional data, but evidence from prospective data is limited. We analysed how perceived stress and work stressors (work demands, decision authority and workplace social support) are related to key dimensions of insomnia over time, using structural equation modelling. Biennial measurements from a large sample of the working population in Sweden enabled us to analyse both the relationship from stress to sleep as well as that from sleep to stress. Overall, we found reciprocal relations between insomnia and all four stress measures. However, lookin...

Abstract The relevance of altered rest-activity rhythm (RAR) and light exposure rhythm (LER) in insomnia patients under natural conditions remains unclear. The aim of this study was to compare the parametric and nonparametric circadian variables of RAR and those of LER under natural conditions between insomnia patients and normal controls (NC) in a community-dwelling setting. The relationship of the nonparametric variables with sleep quality was also explored in both groups. Participants above 18 years old were recruited from three Public Health Centers in a rural area of Korea. Actigraphy (Actiwatch 2; Philips Re...

AbstractSleepiness propensity and sleepiness perception are two relevant dimensions of the general multidimensional sleepiness construct. In the current study, the aim was to identify eventual homogeneous subgroups when sleepiness propensity and sleepiness perception measures are combined. Data from 678 undergraduate students (aged 17 to 24  years) from a medical school were analyzed. A Two-Step Cluster Analysis was performed taken into consideration sleepiness propensity and sleepiness perception measures as clustering variables. Four different clusters were identified. Additionally, the two groups comprising higher ...
