Towards a better understanding of increased sleep duration in the chronic phase of moderate to severe traumatic brain injury : an actigraphy study
Introduction Most adults with moderate to severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) report persistent sleep-wake disturbances. Whether these complaints are either associated with abnormal sleep-wake patterns or can be explained ...
Biomarkers of dementia in obstructive sleep apnea.
Epidemiologic and mechanistic evidence is increasingly supporting the notion that obstructive sleep apnea is a risk factor for dementia. Hence, the identification of patients at risk of cognitive decline due to obstructive ...
Obstructive sleep apnea during REM sleep and daytime cerebral functioning : a regional cerebral blood flow study using high-resolution SPECT
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) predominantly during rapid eye movement (REM) sleep may have impacts on brain health, even in milder OSA cases. Here, we evaluated whether REM sleep OSA is associated with abnormal daytime ...

Mother–infant interaction and child brain morphology : a multidimensional approach to maternal sensitivity
Sensitivity and brain structure
Emerging research suggests that normative variation in parenting quality relates to children's brain development. However, although the young brain is presumed to be especially sensitive to environmental influence, to our ...
Reconsidering the links between sibship size, maternal sensitivity, and child attachment : a multidimensional interactive approach
Sibship size and maternal sensitivity

Despite being a well-documented predictor of children’s cognitive and social development, sibship has received remarkably little attention in the attachment and maternal sensitivity literature. The only study that has ...
Child temperamental anger, mother–child interactions, and socio-emotional functioning at school entry
Temperamental anger and child functioning
This study investigated the role of temperamental anger in toddlerhood in the prediction of child socio-emotional functioning at school entry and the moderating function of mother–child interactions in these predictive ...
Attachment security and maternal behaviors as predictors of children's psychosocial adjustment at school entry
Mother–child relationships and children’s psychosocial functioning : the specific roles of attachment security and maternal behavior
(Taylor & Francis, 2018-05-17)
Objective. This paper aimed to examine the contributions of a second assessment time point of attachment security, along with assessments of maternal behavior (sensitivity and autonomy support), to the prediction of ...
