Conclusions Higher cardiovascular endurance may mitigate the relationship between poorer subjective sleep quality and lower EC thickness. Future longitudinal studies should examine the interactive effects of sleep and fitness on brain health among older and more vulnerable populations.

Although intellectual disability was included in the first description of Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), the cognitive and neurodevelopmental (ND) components of DMD and Becker muscular dystrophy (BMD) remain overshadowed by their motor, cardiac, and pulmonary manifestations. To assess the ND comorbidity burden in dystrophinopathy patients at Le Bonheur Children's Hospital neuromuscular clinic, abstraction of the electronic medical record was performed for 46 patients. Diagnoses of ADHD, epilepsy, autism spectrum, obsessive compulsive, oppositional defiant, mood, anxiety, and sleep disorders, along with discussion of an...

This study aims to investigate whether children with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) have sleep disorders in addition to evaluate the sleep quality and daytime sleepiness in mothers who are primary caregivers using questionnaires. Demographic and clinical data in addition to gross motor functional status of 24 patients with a DMD diagnosis were measured using gross motor function classification system (GMFCS). The patients were given the sleep disturbance scale for children (SDSC) in order to evaluate their sleep features.

The decline of respiratory function in patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) leads to alteration of nocturnal gas exchange, with nocturnal hypoventilation (NH) representing the first manifestation. Current expert guidelines warrant the implementation of nocturnal non-invasive ventilation (NIV) when forced vital capacity (FVC)% falls below 50. However, there is limited evidence on the pulmonary function threshold correlating with the onset of NH. With this retrospective, longitudinal study on pediatric patients who underwent a sleep study (SS) at Great Ormond Street Hospital, London, between 2010-2020, we aim to i...

Depression and anxiety are common neuropsychiatric disorders that usually appear as comorbidities. The development of new drugs is crucial for safer and more effective clinical management of both disorders. Riparin A is a synthetic chemical analog of riparins that naturally occur in several medicinal plants. Marked pharmacological effects such as anxiolytic and antidepressant properties characterize this class of compounds. However, little is known about the potential anxiolytic and antidepressant effects of Riparin A. In this work, we showed that, unlike other riparins, Riparin A exerts only a very mild anxiolytic-like ef...

mitriou Autistic adults have a high prevalence of sleep problems and psychiatric conditions. In the general population sleep problems have been associated with a range of demographic and lifestyle factors. Whether the same factors contribute to different types of disturbed sleep experienced by autistic adults is unknown and served as the main aim of this study. An online survey was conducted with 493 autistic adults. Demographic information (e.g., age, gender), about lifestyle (e.g., napping), and information about comorbid conditions was collected. The Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) was used to assess sleep qua...

How I overcome my chronic insomnia with scienceEverything about our day impacts our sleep. How many minutes we spend outside, what and when we eat, what ’s happening with our hormones, our habits, emotions, stress and thoughts – all this feeds into the sleep we end up with at night. All of which I was completely oblivious to when battling chronic insomnia for years on end.Sleep anxiety can create a very real and vicious circle. I would spend hours lying in bed, increasingly wired, anxious and exhausted as time ticked by, with prescription sleeping pills within reach for those 3am nights when I had to be up firs...

Whenever my 9-year-old seizes, he’s coming out of sleep—as though his brain gets stuck in an elevator between the basement of REM and the lobby of consciousness. Around 5 a.m., always on a day I couldn’t predict, his 50-pound frame starts to tap and jerk, keeping an awful rhythm, and, for too many seconds, he cannot say his name. Seizures are the latest in a litany of medical and developmental challenges that have puzzled his doctors for the last seven years, beginning with the morning his blood sugar dropped to 27 mg/dL. A normal range is around 70-100 mg/dL. We have medication and genetic test results, ...
