Artificial intelligence technology redesigned a bacterial protein that helps researchers track serotonin in the brain in real time.
Tau accumulations disrupt wake-promoting neurons. The findings help explain why day-time napping and sleep disruptions are often reported in Alzheimer's patients.
Amyloid beta deposits influence brain activity during sleep and impair memory formation.
Study reveals a bi-directional link between daytime napping and cognitive decline associated with Alzheimer's disease. Researchers say longer, more frequent napping was associated with worse cognition after one year, and worse cognition was linked to longer and more frequent daytime naps.
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.
Examining microRNA from a simple blood test can help determine whether your child is getting enough sleep.
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.
A new deep neural network can accurately predict a healthy person's brain age based on EEG data collected from a sleep study.
The chances of having asthma are three times higher in teenagers who go to bed late at night compared to those who sleep earlier. The risk of allergic rhinitis is two times higher for late sleepers. Researchers say they can not be certain that staying up late is a cause for asthma, however, they note melatonin is often out of sync in late sleepers, and that could be an influential factor in the allergic response.
