Stress & sleep: a relationship lasting a lifetime
Publication date: Available online 3 September 2019Source: Neuroscience & Biobehavioral ReviewsAuthor(s): Viviana Lo Martire, Danila Caruso, Laura Palagini, Giovanna Zoccoli, Stefano BastianiniAbstractStress is an adaptative response aimed at restoring body homeostasis. The classical neuroendocrine stress response involving the activation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis modulates many physiological aspects, such as the wake-sleep cycle. In the present review, we will first report a series of human and rodent studies showing that each actor of the HPA axis has the potential to interfere with sleep homeo...

Looking into recent and remote past: meta-analytic evidence for cortical re-organization of episodic autobiographical memories
Publication date: Available online 3 September 2019Source: Neuroscience & Biobehavioral ReviewsAuthor(s): Maddalena Boccia, Alice Teghil, Cecilia GuarigliaAbstractEpisodic autobiographical memory (EAM) is pivotal for the development and maintenance of personal identity. However, a theoretical debate still exists about where EAMs are stored in our brain and about hippocampal unique contribution to their recollection. Here we disentangled this issue performing an Activation Likelihood Estimation (ALE) meta-analysis on 79 neuroimaging experiments, classified according to the remoteness of EAMs, and meta-analytic connectiv...
