Pain, dry mouth play role in sleep quality

Head and neck cancer patients who reported poor sleep quality one year after diagnosis had more symptoms of chronic pain and complaints of dry mouth related to radiation treatments, according to a recent study.

The bad and the worse of sleep

Researchers have found that people who sleep for less than six hours each night were 12 per cent more likely to die prematurely than those who get the recommended 6-8 hours.

Sleep disturbances associated with behaviour problems

Reports have suggested that sleep problems in children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorders are associated with challenging daytime behaviours.

Melatonin regulates sleep better than somniferous

Scientists of the University of Granada state that the exogenous administration of melatonin corrects the sleep/wakefulness pace when human biological clock gets altered.

Sleep deprivation affects processing

Sleep deprivation causes some people to shift from a more automatic, implicit process of information categorization to a more controlled, explicit process.

Sleep helps memory formation

A research team has pinpointed for the first time the mechanism that takes place during sleep that causes learning and memory formation to occur.

Lack of sleep more dangerous for women

Women who get less than the recommended eight hours sleep a night are at higher risk of heart disease and heart-related problems than men with the same sleeping patterns.

More than a bad night's sleep

Sleep apnea increases heart disease risk

Obstructive sleep apnea, or periodic interruptions in breathing throughout the night, thickens sufferers' blood vessels and increases the risk of several forms of heart and vascular disease.

Effective treatment for sleep problems

Melatonin medication can shorten the length of time it takes for children with autistic spectrum disorder, Fragile X Syndrome, or both to fall asleep at the beginning of the night.

Hunger hormones affected by poor sleep

A team of scientists looked at two hormones that are primarily responsible for regulating the body's energy balance, telling the body when it is hungry and when it is full.

Communication across brain areas during sleep

Researchers have taken steps toward fully understanding just how memories are formed, transferred, and ultimately stored in the brain.
