American Academy of Sleep Medicine Researchers who studied 100 twin pairs have identified a gene mutation that may allow the carrier to function normally on less than six hours of sleep per night.  The genetic variant also appears to provide greater resistance to the effects of sleep deprivation. Results show that a participant with p.Tyr362His – a variant of the BHLHE41 gene – had an average nightly sleep duration of only five hours, which was more than one hour shorter than the...

Allergy, Sleep & Lung Care provides healthy sleeping habits for students of all ages. Fort Myers, Fla. (PRWEB) July 31, 2014 As another school year approaches, teens and college students are found milking every opportunity to stay out late, sleep in, or even spending time foregoing sleep entirely. Research proves that sleep regulates mood and is closely tied to learning and memory functions, making it critical for teens and young adults to practice healthy sleeping habits. It also...

The NIH awarded NJIT’s Sergei Adamovich and Rutgers colleague Eugene Tunik, Ph.D., PT, $1.3 million to continue helping people recover from the debilitating effects of a stroke. Newark, NJ (PRWEB) July 29, 2014 Helping people recover from the debilitating effects of a stroke is an immensely complex challenge that requires deep knowledge of neurophysiology as well as effective therapy. Advancing such knowledge to improve therapeutic options and outcomes has been the primary focus of...

depression stimulation
2014-07-23 02:00:16

Elsevier B.V. Brain stimulation treatments, like electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), are often effective for the treatment of depression. Like antidepressant medications, however, they typically have a delayed onset. For example, a patient may receive several weeks of regular ECT treatments before a full response is achieved. Thus, there is an impetus to develop antidepressant treatments that act to rapidly improve mood. Low field magnetic...

Explaining Brain Circuitry By Dodging Dots
2014-07-09 03:49:18

Brown University A neuroscience study provides new insight into the primal brain circuits involved in collision avoidance, and perhaps a more general model of how neurons can participate in networks to process information and act on it. In the study, Brown University neuroscientists tracked the cell-by-cell progress of neural signals from the eyes through the brains of tadpoles as they saw and reacted to stimuli including an apparently approaching black circle. In so doing, the...

Newborn Night-Waking Has A Detrimental Health Impact On Parents
2014-07-09 09:11:48

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online One of the hardest parts of new parenthood is never getting enough sleep. Once an hour, every night, the baby cries out for food, comfort, or to be cleaned. Most new parents report feeling more exhausted in the morning than they did the night before. Professor Avi Sadeh led a team of researchers from Tel Aviv University's (TAU) School of Psychological Sciences to conduct the first study to examine why interrupted sleep can be as...

Electrooculography
2012-12-31 11:47:45

Electrooculography, sometimes shortened to EOG, is the tracing of electricity used for operation of the retina in different phases, specifically the resting potential. The results are recorded on an electrooculogram. These are interpreted for opthalmological diagnosis and in recording eye movements. Eye movement measurements: Usually, pairs of electrodes are placed either above and below the eye or to the left and right of the eye. If the eye is moved from the center position towards one...
