Poor quality sleep can lead to sexual dysfunction in women, a new study reports.
Researchers have created new 3D maps of two melatonin receptors. The models can be used to help develop new treatments that not only improve sleep, but may also treat a variety of other conditions from diabetes to cancer.
According to a new study, nightmares and insomnia may elevate the risk of depression.
A new study reports the relationship between suicidal thoughts and nightmares is mediated by feelings of defeat, entrapment and hopelessness.
Researchers have identified a second gene that contributes to natural short sleep. Using optogenetics, researchers triggered neurons in the pons that express the ADRB1 gene, rousing mice from sleep. Wakefulness-promoting neurons in the pons with a mutated version of ADRB1 were more easily activated.
New machine learning technology that researchers have made free online can be used by sleep experts to study the role of K-complex, a brief but prominent pattern of brain activity that lasts around half a second during sleep.
A number of recent research papers have warned about the effects of blue light emitted from smart phones can have on sleep patterns. A new study reveals wearing specially designed glasses with amber lenses, or using amber light functions on devices can reduce insomnia for those who use their phones at bed time.
Linguistic analytic models found users who tweet about loneliness post significantly more frequently about mental health concerns, relationship problems, and insomnia.
MIT researchers have developed a new, non invasive method to help monitor sleep patterns. The device uses an advanced AI algorithm to analyze wireless signals around a person and translate the measurements into sleep stages. Researchers plan to use the technology to study how Parkinson's disease affects sleep.
