Bedtime media use linked to less sleep in children who struggle to self-regulate behavior

(Arizona State University) Researchers in the Arizona State University Department of Psychology followed 547 children for a week and measured their media use and sleep patterns. For children who generally struggle to self-regulate their behavior, screen time in the hour before bed was associated with less sleep. Media use in children who scored high on measures of effortful control was not related to less sleep.

Sexual side effects were more prevalent with SSRIs, but the effect on cognitive functions did not differ from agomelatine Despite the distinct, promising mechanism of action, agomelatine was not as effective as the SSRIs for the treatment of depression.
