The Positive Effects of Extract on Quality of Sleep in Insomnia Rat Models.

Int J Environ Res Public Health 2022 May 29;19(11). Epub 2022 May 29.

Department of Physiology, College of Medicine, Catholic Kwandong University, Gangneung 25601, Korea.

Sleep disorders may have various causes and can incur mental and/or physical symptoms, and affect an individual's quality of life. In this study, we confirm that the extract (PCET) can improve sleep quality and structure by promoting inhibitory neurotransmission via the γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) type A (GABA) receptors based on the mechanisms revealed in the experiment with superior cervical ganglion neurons. Pentobarbital-induced sleep tests were conducted in order to determine whether the PCET extract improves the sleep quality and structure in normal ICR mice. Read More

Somatic genetics analysis of sleep in adult mice.

J Neurosci 2022 Jun 3. Epub 2022 Jun 3.

National Institute of Biological Sciences (NIBS), Beijing 102206, China

Classical forward and reverse mouse genetics require germline mutations and, thus, are unwieldy to study sleep functions of essential genes or redundant pathways. It is also time-consuming to conduct electroencephalogram/electromyogram-based mouse sleep screening owing to labor-intensive surgeries and genetic crosses. Here, we describe a highly accurate SleepV (video) system and adeno-associated virus (AAV)-based adult brain chimeric (ABC)-expression/knockout (KO) platform for somatic genetics analysis of sleep in adult male or female mice.

Abnormal timing of slow wave synchronization processes in non-rapid eye movement sleep parasomnias.

Sleep 2022 May 24. Epub 2022 May 24.

Center for Investigation and Research on Sleep, Lausanne University Hospital (CHUV), 1011 Lausanne, Switzerland.

Study Objectives: Sleepwalking, confusional arousals, and sleep terrors are parasomnias occurring out of non-rapid eye movement (NREM) sleep. Several previous studies have described EEG changes associated with NREM parasomnia episodes, but it remains unclear whether these changes are specific to parasomnia episodes or whether they are part of the normal awakening process. Here we directly compared regional brain activity, measured with high-density (hd-) EEG, between parasomnia episodes and normal awakenings (without behavioral manifestations of parasomnia).

A circuit-level biomarker of Rett syndrome based on ectopic phase-amplitude coupling during slow-wave-sleep.

Cereb Cortex 2022 May 31. Epub 2022 May 31.

Department of Neurology, Boston Children's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA 02115, United States.

Rett syndrome (RTT) is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by loss of purposeful hand use and spoken language following an initial period of normal development. Although much is known about the genetic and molecular underpinnings of RTT, less is known about the circuit-level etiopathology. Coupling of oscillations during slow-wave-sleep (SWS) underlies important neurocognitive processes in adulthood, yet its emergence has yet to be described in early typical development (TD) or in RTT.

Conditional Knockout of in Corticotropin-Releasing Factor Neurons Does Not Alter Sleep-Wake Rhythm in Mice.

Front Neurosci 2021 18;15:808754. Epub 2022 Feb 18.

Department of Neuroscience II, Research Institute of Environmental Medicine, Nagoya University, Nagoya, Japan.

Sleep and wakefulness are regulated by both the homeostatic mechanism and circadian clock. In mammals, the central circadian clock, the suprachiasmatic nucleus, in the hypothalamus plays a crucial role in the timing of physiology and behavior. Recently, we found that the circadian regulation of wakefulness was transmitted corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) neurons in the paraventricular nucleus of the hypothalamus to orexin neurons in the lateral hypothalamus.

Rhythmicity in heart rate and its surges usher a special period of sleep, a likely home for PGO waves.

Curr Res Physiol 2022 15;5:118-141. Epub 2022 Feb 15.

Lab. for Human Brain Dynamics, AAI Scientific Cultural Services Ltd., Nicosia, 1065, Cyprus.

High amplitude electroencephalogram (EEG) events, like unitary K-complex (KC), are used to partition sleep into stages and hence define the hypnogram, a key instrument of sleep medicine. Throughout sleep the heart rate (HR) changes, often as a steady HR increase leading to a peak, what is known as a heart rate surge (HRS). The hypnogram is often unavailable when most needed, when sleep is disturbed and the graphoelements lose their identity. Read More

Lucid dreaming occurs in activated rapid eye movement sleep, not a mixture of sleep and wakefulness.

Sleep 2022 04;45(4)

Stanford University.

Study Objectives: (1) To critically test whether a previously reported increase in frontolateral 40 Hz power in lucid REM sleep, used to justify the claim that lucid dreaming is a "hybrid state" mixing sleep and wakefulness, is attributable to the saccadic spike potential (SP) artifact as a corollary of heightened REM density. (2) To replicate the finding that lucid dreams are associated with physiological activation, including heightened eye movement density, during REM sleep. (3) To conduct an exploratory analysis of changes in EEG features during lucid REM sleep. Read More
