Journal of Sleep Research (J SLEEP RES)
Official Journal of the European Sleep Research Society. The Journal of Sleep Research is an international journal that encourages important research papers presenting new findings in the field of sleep and wakefulness (including biological rhythms and dreaming). The Journal reflects the progress in this rapidly expanding field, promoting the exchange of ideas between scientists at a global level.

ABSTRACT: Study objectives: The currently assumed aetiology for Delayed Sleep Phase Disorder (DSPD) is a delay of the circadian rhythm system. Clinicians have sought to use chronotherapy or bright light therapy, which has been shown to advance the circadian rhythm to correct the disorder. However, these treatments have achieved unreliable outcomes for DSPD patients, fuelling speculation that the disorder may be caused by a longer than normal circadian rhythm period length (i.e., tau). The present study investigated this proposed explanation using a 78-hour ultradian forced de-synchrony bed rest protocol. Design: During the protocol, twenty-minute sleep opportunities continuously alternated with 40 minutes of enforced wakefulness to simulate a series of 1-hour long “days”. Core temperature was monitored across the 78-hour protocol to identify the timing of the circadian rhythm and its tau. Setting: Flinders University Sleep Laboratory, Adelaide, South Australia. Participants: Six persons who met criteria for DSPD according to the International Classification of Sleep Disorders-2 (2 female, 4 male, mean age=22.00, SD=3.29) and seven healthy sleepers (5 females, 2 males, mean age=23.14, SD=3.93) with normal sleep timing. Interventions: N/A Measurements and Results: The core temperature rhythm of the DSPD participants delayed more rapidly (i.e. >30 minutes) than the healthy sleepers. The DSPD participants temperature rhythm tau (M=24 hours, 54 minutes, SD=23 minutes) was significantly longer (t=-2.33, p=0.04, d=1.91) than the healthy sleepers (M=24 hours, 29 minutes, SD=16 minutes). Conclusions: These findings provide an explanation for the difficulty that DSPD patients have in phase advancing to a more conventional sleep time and their frequent relapse following treatment. Outcomes of this study support the use of a vigorous and continued application of chronobiologic and behavioural therapies to keep DSPD patients entrained to their desired earlier sleep times.Journal of Sleep Research 01/2013;

ABSTRACT: Children's vagal tone and vagal suppression were examined as moderators of associations between children's sleep disruptions and adjustment problems. A relatively large sample (n = 167) of boys and girls who ranged in age between 8 and 9 years participated with their parents. Sleep was examined via actigraphy in the child's home for seven consecutive days. Children's vagal tone was examined during baseline conditions, and their vagal suppression was assessed in response to an inter-adult argument. In comparison with children exhibiting higher levels of vagal tone, those with lower vagal tone were at increased risk of externalizing problems, depression symptoms and higher body mass index associated with increased sleep disruptions (i.e. lower Sleep Efficiency, increased Wake Minutes and fewer Sleep Minutes). Thus, lower vagal tone functioned as a vulnerability factor for adjustment problems in the context of sleep problems. A higher level of vagal suppression to the inter-adult argument functioned as a protective factor against externalizing behaviors otherwise associated with increased Wake Minutes and reduced Sleep Efficiency. Findings demonstrating the moderating role of vagal functioning in the context of sleep disruptions are novel, and highlight the importance of individual differences in children's physiological regulation for sleep and adjustment.Journal of Sleep Research 01/2008; 16(4):396-405.

ABSTRACT: Children with breath-holding (BH) spells may demonstrate sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) during polysomnography. We studied five young children with cyanotic spells retrospectively and found both SDB and a response to adenotonsillectomy. We therefore proceeded with a prospective investigation of treatment for SDB in children with comorbid cyanotic spells. Nineteen children with cyanotic BH spells were identified and enrolled in the prospective study. Parents chose either treatment or observation. Fourteen children underwent complete SDB evaluation and treatment trials while five selected observation only (control group). Sleep and sleep-surgery specialist evaluation and polysomnography revealed the presence of a narrow upper-airway and an abnormal respiratory disturbance index in all 14 children. Nasal CPAP was not successful, but adenotonsillectomy performed near 14 months of age eliminated SDB. BH spells were eliminated 1 month after surgery, while they persisted to the end of the study (24 months of age) in the control group. In conclusion, the presence of cyanotic BH should prompt investigation and polysomnography for possible SDB. Independent treatment of SDB may hasten resolution of BH spells in these cases.Journal of Sleep Research 01/2008; 16(4):406-13.
