Treating insomnia improves depression, maladaptive thinking, and hyperarousal in postmenopausal women: comparing cognitive-behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBTI), sleep restriction therapy, and sleep hygiene education.

Sleep Med 2018 Dec 28;55:124-134. Epub 2018 Dec 28.

Thomas Roth Sleep Disorders & Research Center, Henry Ford Health System, Detroit, MI, USA. Electronic address:

Introduction: Depression increases during menopause, and subclinical depressive symptoms increase risk for major depression. Insomnia is common among postmenopausal women and increases depression-risk in this already-vulnerable population. Recent evidence supports the efficacy of cognitive-behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBTI) to treat menopausal insomnia, but it remains unclear whether treating insomnia also alleviates co-occurring depressive symptoms and depressogenic features.

Association between circadian rhythms and neurodegenerative diseases.

Lancet Neurol 2019 Mar 12;18(3):307-318. Epub 2019 Feb 12.

Department of Psychiatry, Neurology, and Epidemiology and Biostatistics, University of California, San Francisco, CA, USA; San Francisco VA Medical Center, San Francisco, CA, USA.

Dysfunction in 24-h circadian rhythms is a common occurrence in ageing adults; however, circadian rhythm disruptions are more severe in people with age-related neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer's disease and related dementias, and Parkinson's disease. Manifestations of circadian rhythm disruptions differ according to the type and severity of neurodegenerative disease and, for some patients, occur before the onset of typical clinical symptoms of neurodegeneration. Evidence from preliminary studies suggest that circadian rhythm disruptions, in addition to being a symptom of neurodegeneration, might also be a potential risk factor for developing Alzheimer's disease and related dementias, and Parkinson's disease, although large, longitudinal studies are needed to confirm this relationship.

CD8 T cells from patients with narcolepsy and healthy controls recognize hypocretin neuron-specific antigens.

Nat Commun 2019 Feb 19;10(1):837. Epub 2019 Feb 19.

Department of Clinical Biochemistry, Molecular Sleep Laboratory, Rigshospitalet, 2600 Glostrup, Denmark.

Narcolepsy Type 1 (NT1) is a neurological sleep disorder, characterized by the loss of hypocretin/orexin signaling in the brain. Genetic, epidemiological and experimental data support the hypothesis that NT1 is a T-cell-mediated autoimmune disease targeting the hypocretin producing neurons. While autoreactive CD4 T cells have been detected in patients, CD8 T cells have only been examined to a minor extent. Read More

Daytime Central Thalamic Deep Brain Stimulation Modulates Sleep Dynamics in the Severely Injured Brain: Mechanistic Insights and a Novel Framework for Alpha-Delta Sleep Generation.

Front Neurol 2019 4;10:20. Epub 2019 Feb 4.

Feil Family Brain and Mind Research Institute, Weill Cornell Medicine, New York, NY, United States.

Loss of organized sleep electrophysiology is a characteristic finding following severe brain injury. The return of structured elements of sleep architecture has been associated with positive prognosis across injury etiologies, suggesting a role for sleep dynamics as biomarkers of wakeful neuronal circuit function. In a continuing study of one minimally conscious state patient studied over the course of ~8½ years, we sought to investigate whether changes in daytime brain activation induced by central thalamic deep brain stimulation (CT-DBS) influenced sleep electrophysiology.

Cough in exercise and athletes.

Pulm Pharmacol Ther 2019 Feb 13. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

Institut Universitaire de Cardiologie et de Pneumologie de Québec, Université Laval, Canada.

In the general population, particularly in individuals with asthma, cough is a common symptom, often reported after exertion, although regular exercise may be associated with a reduction in the prevalence of cough. In athletes, exercise-induced cough is also a particularly frequent symptom. The main etiologies of cough in athletes are somewhat similar to non-athletes, including asthma/airway hyperresponsiveness, upper airways disorders such as allergic or non-allergic rhinitis, and exercise-induced laryngeal obstruction, although these conditions are more frequently observed in athletes.

Our work proposes separated score integration (SSI), a new method based on alpha integration to perform soft fusion of scores in multiclass classification problems, one of the most common problems in automatic classification. Theoretical derivation is presented to optimize the parameters of this method to achieve the least mean squared error (LMSE) or the minimum probability of error (MPE). Read More

CHADS₂, CHA₂DS₂ASc, and New ABCD Scores Predict the Risk of Peripheral Arterial Disease in Patients with Sleep Apnea.

J Clin Med 2019 Feb 5;8(2). Epub 2019 Feb 5.

Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, Department of Internal Medicine, Kaohsiung Medical University Hospital, Kaohsiung Medical University, Kaohsiung 807, Taiwan.

The association between sleep apnea (SA) and peripheral artery disease (PAD) remains debatable, and there is no clinical tool to predict incident PAD in SA patients. The CHADS₂ score has been found useful in predicting PAD risk. This study was designed to investigate the association between these diseases and the usefulness of CHADS₂ and CHA₂DS₂ASc scores in predicting subsequent PAD in SA patients. Read More

[Glaucoma-Related Sleep Disorder and Associated Diseases].

Klin Monbl Augenheilkd 2019 Feb 14;236(2):150-153. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Klinik und Poliklinik für Augenheilkunde, Universitätsklinikum Hamburg-Eppendorf.

The simultaneous occurrence of sleeping disorders and glaucoma is caused by multiple factors and, until today, the underlying mechanisms are not completely understood. There seems to be correlations, either between sleeping disorders in patients with a diagnosed glaucoma and between the onset of a glaucoma in patients with certain sleeping habits, but no precise data has been collected so far.

Insomnia symptoms and short sleep predict anxiety and worry in response to stress exposure: a prospective cohort study of medical interns.

Sleep Med 2018 Dec 14;55:40-47. Epub 2018 Dec 14.

Department of Psychiatry, University of Michigan Medical School, Ann Arbor, MI, USA. Electronic address:

Study Objectives: While anxiety rates are alarmingly high in short sleeping insomniacs, the relationship between insomnia and anxiety symptoms has not been extensively studied, especially in comparison to the relationship between insomnia and depressive symptoms. Using residency training as a naturalistic stress exposure, we prospectively assessed the role of sleep disturbance and duration on anxiety-risk in response to stress.

Methods: Web-based survey data from 1336 first-year training physicians (interns) prior to and then quarterly across medical internship. Read More

J Appl Physiol (1985) 2019 Feb 14. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Department of Allergology, University Central Hospital, Helsinki, Finland, Finland.

Overnight analysis of tidal breathing flow volume loops (TBFV), recorded by impedance pneumography (IP), has been successfully applied in the home monitoring of children with wheezing disorders. However, little is known on how sleep physiology modifies the relationship between TBFV profiles and wheeze. We studied such interactions in wheezing infants. Read More

Neuropsychology of Consciousness: Some History and a Few New Trends.

Front Psychol 2019 30;10:50. Epub 2019 Jan 30.

Department of Neurosciences, Biomedicine and Movement, University of Verona, Verona, Italy.

Consciousness is a global activity of the nervous system. Its physiological and pathological mechanisms have been studied in relation to the natural sleep-wake cycle and various forms of normal or morbid unconsciousness, mainly in neurophysiology and clinical neurology. Neuropsychology has been more interested in specific higher brain functions, such as perception and memory and their disorders, rather than in consciousness . Read More
