The paradox of paradoxical insomnia: A theoretical review towards a unifying evidence-based definition.

Sleep Med Rev 2018 Dec 25;44:70-82. Epub 2018 Dec 25.

Sleep and Epilepsy Center, Neurocenter of Southern Switzerland, Civic Hospital (EOC) of Lugano, Lugano, Switzerland; Sleep Disorders Center, Department of Neurology, Scientific Institute Ospedale San Raffaele, Vita-Salute University, Milan, Italy. Electronic address:

Paradoxical insomnia is one of the most intriguing yet challenging subtypes of insomnia. Despite being recognized for a long time by the international community, it is still unclear whether this entity really exists, which are its features and boundaries. Much of the debate is fuelled by the lack of a consensus on its precise definition. Read More

A systematic review of cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia implemented in primary care and community settings.

Sleep Med Rev 2018 Nov 23;44:23-36. Epub 2018 Nov 23.

École de psychologie, Université Laval, Québec, QC, Canada; Centre d'étude des troubles du sommeil, Institut universitaire en santé mentale de Québec, Québec, QC, Canada.

The advent of stepped-care and the need to disseminate cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) has led to novel interventions, which capitalize on non-specialist venues and/or health personnel. However, the translatability of these CBT-I programs into practice is unknown. This review evaluates the current state of CBT-I programs that are directly implemented in primary care and/or community settings. Read More

Sleep talking: A viable access to mental processes during sleep.

Sleep Med Rev 2018 Dec 6;44:12-22. Epub 2018 Dec 6.

Department of Psychology, Sapienza University of Rome, Rome, Italy. Electronic address:

Sleep talking is one of the most common altered nocturnal behaviours in the whole population. It does not represent a pathological condition and consists in the unaware production of vocalisations during sleep. Although in the last few decades we have experienced a remarkable increase in knowledge about cognitive processes and behavioural manifestations during sleep, the literature regarding sleep talking remains dated and fragmentary.

The effect of non-pharmacological sleep interventions on depression symptoms: A meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials.

Sleep Med Rev 2019 02 5;43:118-128. Epub 2018 Nov 5.

School of Psychology and Clinical Language Sciences, University of Reading, UK.

Poor sleep is a significant risk factor for depression across the lifespan and sleep problems have been hypothesised to contribute to the onset and maintenance of depression symptoms. However, sleep problems are usually not a direct target of interventions for depression. A range of non-pharmacological treatments can reduce sleep problems but it is unclear whether these interventions also reduce other depression symptoms. Read More

Insomnia as a predictor of mental disorders: A systematic review and meta-analysis.

Sleep Med Rev 2019 02 16;43:96-105. Epub 2018 Nov 16.

Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, Medical Center - University of Freiburg, Faculty of Medicine University of Freiburg, Germany.

Previous research has identified insomnia as a predictor for the onset of depression. The aim of this meta-analysis is to investigate whether insomnia also predicts the onset of other mental disorders. Longitudinal studies were eligible for inclusion if they investigated insomnia at baseline (including nighttime- and daytime-symptoms) as a predictor of the later onset of psychopathology within a follow-up time-frame of at least 12 mo.

The neurophysiological and neurochemical effects of alcohol on the brain are inconsistent with current evidence based models of sleepwalking.

Authors:
Mark R Pressman

Sleep Med Rev 2019 02 10;43:92-95. Epub 2018 Nov 10.

Sleep Medicine Services, Lankenau Medical Center, Wynnewood, PA, USA; Lankenau Institute for Medical Research, Wynnewood, PA, USA; Department of Medicine, Sidney Kimmel Medical College, Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, PA, USA; Charles Widger School of Law, Villanova University, Villanova, PA, USA. Electronic address:

The DSM-5 and ICSD-3 have removed alcohol from the list of potential triggers for sleepwalking due to the lack of empirical evidence. Recent imaging and EEG based studies of sleepwalking and confusional arousals have provided a more data-based method of examining if alcohol is compatible with what is known about the neurophysiology and neurochemistry of sleepwalking. These studies have demonstrated a deactivation of the frontal areas of the brain, while the cingulate or motor cortex remains active and characterized activation in the form of beta EEG. Read More

White dreams are made of colours: What studying contentless dreams can teach about the neural basis of dreaming and conscious experiences.

Sleep Med Rev 2019 02 14;43:84-91. Epub 2018 Nov 14.

Cognitive Neuroscience Research Unit, CFIN, Aarhus University, Denmark.

Reports of white dreams, the feeling of having had a dream experience without being able to specify this experience any further, make up almost one third of all dream reports, yet this phenomenon-until very recently-had not yet been in the focus of targeted investigations. White dreams are typically interpreted as forgotten dreams, and are sidelined as not being particularly informative with regard to the nature of dreaming. In this review article, we propose a paradigm shift with respect to the status of white dreams arguing that focusing on this phenomenon can reveal fundamental insights about the neural processes that occur in the dreaming brain.

What works for jetlag? A systematic review of non-pharmacological interventions.

Sleep Med Rev 2019 02 7;43:47-59. Epub 2018 Nov 7.

Sleep Research Group, Charles Perkins Centre, University of Sydney, Australia; Northern Clinical School, Sydney Medical School, University of Sydney, Australia; Department of Respiratory and Sleep Medicine, Royal North Shore Hospital, Sydney, Australia.

Jetlag is a combination of travel fatigue and circadian misalignment resulting from air travel across time zones. Routinely recommended interventions based on circadian science include timely exposure to light and darkness (scheduled sleep), but the real-world effectiveness of these and other non-circadian strategies is unknown. We systematically reviewed the evidence for non-pharmacological interventions for jetlag. Read More

Neurobiological and immunogenetic aspects of narcolepsy: Implications for pharmacotherapy.

Sleep Med Rev 2019 02 8;43:23-36. Epub 2018 Nov 8.

Center for Neuroscience, Biosciences Division, SRI International, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. Electronic address:

Excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) and cataplexy are common symptoms of narcolepsy, a sleep disorder associated with the loss of hypocretin/orexin (Hcrt) neurons. Although only a few drugs have received regulatory approval for narcolepsy to date, treatment involves diverse medications that affect multiple biochemical targets and neural circuits. Clinical trials have demonstrated efficacy for the following classes of drugs as narcolepsy treatments: alerting medications (amphetamine, methylphenidate, modafinil/armodafinil, solriamfetol [JZP-110]), antidepressants (tricyclic antidepressants, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors), sodium oxybate, and the H-receptor inverse agonist/antagonist pitolisant.

Local sleep.

Sleep Med Rev 2019 02 12;43:14-21. Epub 2018 Nov 12.

Department of Integrative Physiology and Neurobiology, College of Veterinary Medicine, Spokane, WA, USA.

The historic sleep regulatory paradigm invokes "top-down" imposition of sleep on the brain by sleep regulatory circuits. While remaining conceptually useful, many sleep phenomena are difficult to explain using that paradigm, including, unilateral sleep, sleep-walking, and poor performance after sleep deprivation. Further, all animals sleep after non-lethal brain lesions, regardless of whether the lesion includes sleep regulatory circuits, suggesting that sleep is a fundamental property of small viable neuronal/glial networks.

Linking sleep disturbance to idiopathic male infertility.

Sleep Med Rev 2018 12 3;42:149-159. Epub 2018 Aug 3.

Recently published data suggests that male fertility has declined over the past four decades. The reasons for the decline are unclear with up to 50% of cases of male infertility remaining unexplained (idiopathic male infertility). Whilst environmental factors and rising rates of obesity have been implicated, there is now growing evidence that sleep disturbance may be an independent causative factor. Read More

The balance of sleep: Role of the vestibular sensory system.

Sleep Med Rev 2018 12 8;42:220-228. Epub 2018 Sep 8.

Dept. Pharmacology and Toxicology, School of Biomedical Sciences, University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand.

The vestibular system encodes linear and angular head motion supporting numerous functions from gaze stabilization and postural control, to high-level cortical functions involving spatial cognition, including self-body perception, verticality perception, orientation, navigation and spatial memory. At the brainstem and mesencephalic levels, the vestibular organs also influence postural blood pressure regulation, bone density and muscle composition via specific vestibulo-sympathetic efferences and have been shown to act as a powerful synchronizer of circadian rhythms. Here, we review the evidence that sleep deprivation and sleep apnea syndrome alter vestibular-related oculo-motor and postural control, and that, in turn, vestibular pathologies induce sleep disturbances.

This systematic review examined the associations between sleep and brain functions and structures in children and adolescents aged 1-17 ys. Included studies (n = 24) were peer-reviewed and met the a priori determined population (apparently healthy children and adolescents aged 1 y to 17 ys), intervention/exposure/comparator (various sleep characteristics including duration, architecture, quality, timing), and outcome criteria (brain functions and/or brain structures, excluding cognitive function outcomes). Collectively, the reviewed studies report some relationships between inadequate sleep and resultant differences in brain functions or structures. Read More

How does sleep restriction therapy for insomnia work? A systematic review of mechanistic evidence and the introduction of the Triple-R model.

Sleep Med Rev 2018 12 1;42:127-138. Epub 2018 Sep 1.

Sleep and Circadian Neuroscience Institute, Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences, University of Oxford, UK. Electronic address:

For over 30 y sleep restriction therapy (SRT) has been used to treat insomnia but we know very little about how this therapy exerts its effects. When SRT was first described, it was hypothesised to treat insomnia by addressing four key factors: strengthening homeostatic sleep pressure, inhibiting perpetuating practices (excessive time in bed), attenuating hyperarousal and tightening regulatory control of sleep by the endogenous circadian pacemaker. We conducted a systematic literature review in search of evidence for these putative mechanisms-of-action. Read More

Climate change and sleep: A systematic review of the literature and conceptual framework.

Sleep Med Rev 2018 12 4;42:3-9. Epub 2018 Aug 4.

Milken Institute School of Public Health, The George Washington University, Washington, DC, USA.

From disaster related stress causing insomnia, to poor air quality causing sleep related breathing problems, climate change poses a potentially serious threat to human sleep. We conducted a systematic review evaluating the relationship between climate change and human sleep in the PubMed, Scopus, and Cochrane databases from 1980 through 2017 following the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) guidelines. Inclusion criteria included epidemiologic studies published in English that reported observational population data on human sleep and its relationship to climate change, temperature, extreme weather events and climate related disasters (e.

The impact of ethnicity on the prevalence and severity of obstructive sleep apnea.

Sleep Med Rev 2018 10 2;41:78-86. Epub 2018 Feb 2.

Adelaide Institute for Sleep Health, A Flinders Centre for Research Excellence, College of Medicine & Public Health, Flinders University, Bedford Park, 5042 South Australia, Australia; The NHMRC Centre of Research Excellence, NeuroSleep, Woolcock Institute of Medical Research, The University of Sydney, Sydney, Australia.

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common disorder associated with multiple adverse health consequences and its prevalence is increasing in parallel with rising obesity trends. Early support for ethnic differences in OSA prevalence and severity has been derived from studies of relatively homogenous ethnic groups. However, between-study comparisons are problematic given differing methodologies. Read More

Devices for home detection of obstructive sleep apnea: A review.

Sleep Med Rev 2018 10 17;41:149-160. Epub 2018 Feb 17.

Charité Universitatsmedizin, Sleep Center, Germany; International Clinical Research Center, St. Anne's University Hospital Brno, Brno, Czech Republic.

One of the most common sleep-related disorders is obstructive sleep apnea, characterized by a reduction of airflow while breathing during sleep and cause significant health problems. This disorder is mainly diagnosed in sleep labs with polysomnography, involving high costs and stress for the patient. To address this situation multiple systems have been proposed to conduct the examination and analysis in the patient's home, using sensors to detect physiological signals that are examined by algorithms.

Sleep Med Rev 2018 12 6;42:100-110. Epub 2018 Jul 6.

Sleep Disorders Center and Department of Neurology, Michigan Medicine, Ann Arbor, MI, USA.

Cystic fibrosis is a chronic, life-shortening illness that affects multiple systems and results in frequent respiratory infections, chronic cough, fat malabsorption and malnutrition. Poor sleep is often reported by patients with cystic fibrosis. Although objective data to explain these complaints have been limited, they do show poor sleep efficiency and frequent arousals.

The impact of alcohol on breathing parameters during sleep: A systematic review and meta-analysis.

Sleep Med Rev 2018 Dec 11;42:59-67. Epub 2018 Jun 11.

Center for Sleep Medicine, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, USA.

Alcohol, a muscle relaxant, can potentially worsen obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) but the literature on the effects of alcohol on OSA is conflicting. This systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials examined the impact of alcohol on breathing parameters during sleep. Ovid Medline, Embase and PsycINFO databases were queried through November 1, 2017 for studies that reported objective measures of breathing during sleep, prior to and after alcohol administration.
