Novel study suggests REM sleep dampens the brain’s sensitivity to fearful stimuli.
Research answers questions concerning the relationship between sleep and memory consolidation.
Jeffrey C. Hall, Michael Rosbash and Michael W. Young receive the award for their work on the molecular mechanisms controlling circadian rhythms.
Ram tells Lauren Pulling about his research into the relationship between Alzheimer’s pathology and sleep spindles, shared recently at AAIC.
Study suggests poor sleep may be an intervention target for those at risk of developing the disease.
This Review from Neurodegenerative Disease Management explores light therapy for Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, and how to maximize treatment impact.
In this edition of our new column, #NCintroduces, Tom Naughton (UCL Cancer Institute) introduces the complex world of chronobiology and circadian rhythms.
James Coffman responds to questions from our recent webinar, ‘How chronic stress experienced during early development epigenetically programs adult disease risk’.
In circadian rhythm sleep–wake disorders precision medicine is less developed than in other medical disciplines mainly because homeostatic sleep and circadian timing have a very complex phenotype with multiple genetic regulation mechanisms.
