Publication date: Available online 3 December 2019Source: Respiratory Physiology &NeurobiologyAuthor(s): Sho Kojima, Tomoya Abe, Shinichiro Morishita, Yuta Inagaki, Weixiang Qin, Kazuki Hotta, Atsuhiro TsubakiAbstractWe evaluated the effects of moderate-intensity exercise in improving the decline in cognitive performance induced by a 24-h period of acute sleep deprivation (SD). We hypothesized that the positive effect of exercise is mediated by increased oxygenation (measured using near-infrared spectroscopy) of the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC). Cognitive performance was measured using the reaction time and i...

(Wiley) Probiotics -- or 'good bacteria' -- have been used to treat infant colic with varying success. In a new trial published in the journal Alimentary Pharmacology&Therapeutics, investigators have shown that drops containing a particular probiotic strain (Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis BB-12) reduced the duration of daily crying by more than 50% in 80% of the 40 infants who received the probiotic once daily for 28 days, with beneficial effects on sleep duration and on stool frequency and consistency.

AbstractBackgroundTestosterone is released in both men and women and plays an important role in social functioning and motivation. Greater testosterone in women has been associated with negative physical health outcomes, while lower testosterone has been associated with psychological disorders. The following cross-sectional study examined the contribution of salivary testosterone, positive and negative affect, and demographic variables in predicting a composite health behavior score (cigarette use, hours of sleep, fruit/vegetable intake, following an exercise routine).MethodThe sample (mean age 21.17,SD = 6.1...

The objective of this study was to evaluate sleep quality and its relationship to cognitive factors among nurses. Sleep quality among nurses is an important issue, which requires more extensive study. Its correlation with cognitive ability has not been sufficiently considered. Five hundred forty nurses (66.3% female) working in 6 hospitals were selected as the sample of the study. Results show that nurses do not experience good quality of sleep. That is, 77.4% of the sample population of nurses have a poor quality of sleep, and nurses working the night shift have more sleep problems than other nurses. The results show that...

The objective of this study was to analyze the characteristics of HRV associated with generalized convulsive seizures (GCS) ± PGES in children.MethodsNine hundred and seventy-seven consecutive children who underwent prolonged scalp video-EEG (vEEG) and 1-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) monitoring at the Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto, Ontario, Canada were reviewed retrospectively from 2009 to 2011. Thirty-five children had GCS captured during their vEEG with or without PGES and met inclusion criteria. Children were subdivided into three age groups and compared with age-matched controls: 3–6 years; 7&nd...
