Researchers find an increased risk of sleep apnea in patients with Multiple Sclerosis.
Researchers discover the switch in the brain which helps promote sleep.
RBD, a sleep disorder which causes people to act out their dreams, could predict the onset of neurodegenerative diseases.
A new study reports listening to music can improve sleep quality for those with insomnia and other sleep disorders.
Researchers report dream dysfunctions and sleep disorders may be warning signs of neurodegenerative diseases up to 15 years before other symptoms appear.
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.
People who suffer from REM sleep behavior disorder are at increased risk of developing Parkinson's disease and dementia as they age, a new study reports. Researchers report RBD causes a lack of dopamine in the brain, and this can contribute to the development of neurodegenerative diseases.
Using new technology to turn inflammation on and off in mice, researchers discover inflammation may contribute to sleep disorders.
Researchers have identified five different subtypes of the sleep disorder insomnia, including difficulty falling asleep and early morning awakening. The study reports insomnia subtypes may be identified by examining personality traits of sufferers.
Autoreactive cytotoxic CD8 T cells have been detected in people with narcolepsy type one. The finding suggests levels of the T-cell reactivity, combined with specific gene expression, may spur on the development of NT1.
A link has been identified between oxidative stress, which has previously been linked to aging and neurodegeneration, and sleep. Oxidative stress activates neurons that control sleep function. The findings could help in the development of treatments for sleep disorders.
Study adds to a growing body of evidence that stress in the workplace, coupled with impaired sleep, increases the risk of cardiovascular disease and coronary mortality, especially in hypersensitive workers.
