School start times, delinquency, and substance use: a criminological perspective - Semenza DC, Meldrum RC, Jackson DB, Vaughn MG, Piquero AR.

Research finds a lack of sleep during adolescence is associated with a variety of negative outcomes and suggests that early school start times contribute to this problem. Criminologists have largely overlooked the relevance of school start times for adoles...

Authors: Raftopoulou S, Nicolaides NC, Papageorgiou L, Amfilochiou A, Zakinthinos SG, George P, Eliopoulos E, Chrousos GP, Vlachakis D Abstract Herein, we deploy an in silico pipeline of structural bioinformatics, thermodynamics, and molecular dynamics to investigate the role of cortisol in circadian rhythms, biorhythms, stress response, and even sleep disorders. Our study shows that high concentrations of cortisol intercalate in the minor groove of DNA. This phenomenon widens the adjacent major grooves and provides the Clock/Bmal1 complex with more space to dock and interact with DNA. Then, the strong charges of c...

Authors: Intas G, Rokana V, Stergiannis P, Chalari E, Anagnostopoulos F Abstract BACKGROUND: Chronic illnesses with high level of disability can affect not only the patients but also the main caregiver who supports them. The aim of this study was to investigate the burden and sleep disorders of family caregivers of hemodialysis patients. METHODS: This is a cross-sectional study. The sample of the study consisted of 310 family caregivers of hemodialysis patients. The tools used were the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) for sleep disorders assessment, the Zarit Burden Interview, and the Center for Epidemiolo...

DISCUSSION: Sleep deprivation etiologies are multifactorial and have several effects on ICU patients. Sleep protocol and staff training should be introduced to reduce unnecessary interventions by ICU staff. Tele-ICU monitoring can also be introduced to reduce unnecessary interventions where clinicians can monitor patients remotely and therefore enhance sleep in the ICU. During their stay in the ICU, patients can be instructed to wear earplugs and also have aromatherapy massage to reduce stress and enhance sleep quality. More research on the physical pain and the psychological factors using objective methods should be condu...

aacute;lez J. Alfredo Martínez Health related quality of life (HRQoL) is a subjective appreciation of how personal characteristics and health influence well-being. This cross-sectional analysis aimed to quantitatively measure the influence of dietary, lifestyle, and demographic factors on HRQoL. A sub-sample of the Seguimiento Universidad de Navarra (SUN) Project, a Mediterranean cohort, was analyzed (n = 15,674). Through self-administered questionnaires the relationship between HRQoL and dietary patterns (Mediterranean-diet (MedDiet) and provegetarian food pattern (FP) assessment), lifestyles (sleeping hours,...

AbstractFor LGBTQ  + individuals, coming out can be an experience of marked adversity. Indeed, research has shown that the experience can trigger psychological ill-health (e.g. depression and anxiety) as well as posttraumatic stress symptoms (PTSS) such as sleep disturbance, somatic symptoms and cognitive distress. While studies have investigated the pain associated with coming out, much less is known about the potential for this life event to lead to growth. The aim of the current study, therefore, was to explore levels of posttraumatic stressand the presence of posttraumatic growth (PTG) in LGBTQ  + adults ...
