Periodic leg movements in narcolepsy patients: impact on sleep architecture
. Acta Neurol Scand.
How exactly does a gentle rhythmic motion change the sleep architecture
of the brain?
and the risk of incident dementia in the community.
However, these studies have indicated that sleep homeostasis [8,13,14] and quality  remains quite stable and observable changes are noted only in sleep architecture
. [11-14,16] Further women often report subjective complaints of disturbed sleep though polysomnographic changes are less frequent.
First video-EEG-PSG recordings revealed loss of sleep architecture
with very frequent faciobrachial seizures.
Human sleep patterns are known to undertake robust and predictable changes with age that are observable in overall sleep architecture
and electroencephalogram (EEG) oscillations/waveforms.
"So it may be that this is the first antidepressant which does not affect sleep architecture
," observed Dr.
such as awakenings ( n ); total sleep time (TST)(min); sleep efficiency (SE)(%); sleep latency (SL)(min); percentage of time spent in non rapid eye movement sleep stage (NREM) 1(%), NREM2(%), NREM3(%), and rapid eye movement sleep stage (REM)(%), the index of periodic leg movements during sleep (PLMSI)(/h), and sleep apnea parameters including apnea hypopnea index (AHI)(/h), apnea index (AI), hypopnea index (HI)(/h), oxygen desaturation index (ODI)(/h), and minimal oxygen saturation (SaO[sub]2)(%), the percentage of time spent at SaO[sub]2< 90% (%), mean SaO[sub]2(%), and arousal with respiratory events (ARO RES)(/h) during sleep were assessed.
Single-channel electroencephalography was used to assess sleep architecture
Furthermore, changes in sleep architecture
with olanzapine may provide a better understanding of its pharmacodynamic profile as well as help understand the neurobiology of schizophrenia.
Although statistically significant differences in clinical or polysomnographic parameters were not found due to the limited population of 7 patients with advanced PD, the present results regarding maintenance of sleep architecture
and a trend toward an improvement of sleep quality after 6 months of LCIG infusion, are similar to results reported by Zibetti et al.
demonstrated that shorter sleep duration is associated with significant weight gain and high BMI, which can be attributed to reduced sleep efficiency and changes in sleep architecture
