A longitudinal investigation of sleep and daytime wakefulness in children and youth with concussion
A high proportion of adults who sustain a concussion identify changes in their sleep during the acute stage, typically reporting an increased need for sleep or nonrestful sleep. Our understanding of sleep following ...
The impact of poor sleep on cognition and activities of daily living after traumatic brain injury : a review
Sleep and everyday activities after TBI
Background/aim : Patients frequently report sleep disrup-tions or insomnia during their hospital stay, particularlyafter a traumatic brain injury (TBI). The consequences ofthese sleep disturbances on everyday activities ...
Disentangling the direction of associations between sleep and temperament in toddlers
(Taylor & Francis, 2019-06-24)
Objectives/Background: Although much research has investigated the associations between children’s sleep and their temperament, the direction of these associations remains unclear, largely due to a lack of longitudinal ...
Brain white matter damage and its association with neuronal synchrony during sleep
(Oxford University Press, 2019-01-28)
The restorative function of sleep partly relies on its ability to deeply synchronize cerebral networks to create large slow oscillations observable with EEG. However, whether a brain can properly synchronize and produce a ...
Sleep in the acute phase of severe traumatic brain injury : a snapshot of polysomnography
Sleep and traumatic brain injury
Background and Objectives. The onset of pervasive sleep-wake disturbances associated with traumatic brain injury (TBI) is poorly understood. This study aimed to (a) determine the feasibility of using polysomnography in ...
Sleep and wake disturbances following traumatic brain injury
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a major health concern in industrialised countries. Sleep and wake disturbances are among the most persistent and disabling sequelae after TBI. Yet, despite the widespread complaints of ...
Actigraphy data in pediatric research : the role of sleep diaries
Actigraphy and sleep diary
Background. When assessing children's sleep using actigraphy, researchers usually rely on a sleep diary completed by a parent as an aid in scoring actigraphic data. However, parental nonadherence in completing the sleep ...
Associations between sleep consolidation in infancy and peer relationships in middle childhood
Sleep and peer relationships
Sleep plays an important role in many aspects of children’s development. Research on children’s sleep and their peer relationships has begun to emerge in the last years. However, these studies are mostly cross-sectional. ...
Sleep-wake disturbances in hospitalized patients with traumatic brain injury: association with brain trauma but not with an abnormal melatonin circadian rhythm
(Oxford University Press, 2019-09-28)
Study Objectives: To test whether the sleep-wake cycle disruption in patients hospitalized with traumatic brain injury (TBI) 1) is also found in patients with traumatic injuries other than TBI (nonTBI); and 2) is associated ...
Are NREM sleep characteristics associated to subjective sleep complaints after mild traumatic brain injury?
Sleep after mild TBI
Sleep complaints are common after mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI). While recent find-ings suggest that sleep macro-architecture is preserved in mTBI, features of non-rapid eye movement(NREM) sleep micro-architecture ...
