ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Sleep deprivation is a sufficient lack of restorative sleep over a cumulative period so as to cause physical or psychiatric symptoms and affect routine performances or tasks. Sleep deprivation and sleep disorders are quite common and affect millions of people world-wide. This book discusses the physiological effects of sleep deprivation on the brain. Cognitive performance efficiency during a night without sleep is also assessed. Current theories concerning the role of sleep in memory processing, such as the Synaptic Homeostasis Theory, are examined. Furthermore, published data regarding sleep in critically ill patients is discussed to increase the awareness among health care professionals in general and the intensive care unit (ICU) staff in particular. Other chapters in this book address the correlation between excessive yawning and sleep deprivation and the types of oculomotor responses that occur in patients who are suffering from sleep deprivation. This new book gathers the latest research from around the globe in this field.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The cognitive and behavioral implications of sleep deprivation have been noted in the medical literature for many years. In addition, emerging research continues to demonstrate the contribution of sleep deprivation to some of the most common and costly health conditions today. Sleep Deprivation and Disease provides clinically relevant scientific information to help clinicians, public health professionals, and researchers recognize the ramifications of sleep deprivation across a broad spectrum of health topics. This timely reference covers sleep physiology, experimental approaches to sleep deprivation and measurement of its consequences, as well as health and operational consequences of sleep deprivation. Clinical challenges and areas of uncertainty are also presented in order to encourage future advancements in sleep medicine and help patients avoid the outcomes associated with the myriad causes of sleep deprivation.

Bed And Breakfast

Release Date: 2018
Pages: 61
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Breakfast intake is associated with numerous positive physical and mental health outcomes, yet breakfast skipping remains common in adults. Chronotype and sleep show potential as predictors of breakfast intake; however the existing literature has methodological limitations and fails to examine how psychological mechanisms might explain the relation between sleep and breakfast. The current investigation explored the association of means and variability of sleep behaviors (bedtime, midsleep, sleep duration) as predictors of breakfast intake frequency and high-protein breakfast intake frequency. Additionally, the role of positive and negative affect as mediators in the sleep--breakfast association was examined. Hierarchical regressions and PROCESS parallel mediation models were conducted to assess direct and indirect associations. Variability in bedtime was a significant predictor of breakfast intake frequency, with greater variability associated with less frequent intake. Future work is necessary to examine further the association of sleep and breakfast behaviors, and psychological mechanisms in this relation.

Sleep Disorders In Women  From Menarche Through Pregnancy To Menopause

Pages: 272
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Increasing attention is currently being directed to a variety of health disorders that are either unique to or more common among women than men. This volume adds sleep disorders to the list of those in which important gender differences have been neglected. Sleep Disorders in Women: A Guide to Practical Management - plores the reasons for gender bias in this area of research and provides a comp- hensive and in-depth review of what is currently known and what still remains to be studied concerning this important topic. As several contributors to this volume indicate, numerous misconceptions exist due, not surprisingly, to a shortage of reliable data in the field. As an example, obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is typically thought to be far more common in men than in women. However, as contributors to this volume carefully document, the prevalence of OSA in women varies considerably depending on the specific female population that is studied. It is low in premenopausal women, higher in postme- pausal women, particularly high in women with polycystic ovary syndrome, and of uncertain prevalence in pregnancy. This exemplifies the fact that as women move through varying hormonal environments including puberty, the menstrual cycle, use of oral contraceptives, pregnancy, the postpartum period, and menopause, their risk for a variety of sleep disorders varies considerably. As pointed out in Dr.

When The ADHD Diagnosis Is Wrong  Understanding Other Factors That Affect Attention In Children
Author: Paul G. Swingle
Publisher: ABC-CLIO
Release Date: 2015-08-18
Pages: 174
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

A game-changing resource for parents caught in the labyrinth of the promoted treatments heralding help for troubled children and their families, this book provides readers invaluable guidance in seeking accurate diagnosis and scientifically verified treatment options. Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in children is real and can be severely disabling. However, most causes of children's attention problems are unrelated to ADHD and are not resolvable by drugging the child. Treating symptoms is simply not adequate; a completely different approach to the diagnoses and treatment of attention problems in children is necessary. This book identifies the many neurological patterns associated with children's attention challenges, explains the many psychological and physical factors that can affect attention, and describes how to determine if your child needs not medication but other approaches—such as psychological guidance, diet changes, or simply time to develop past childhood—to solve the problem. Paul G. Swingle, PhD, RPsych, provides millions of parents who are desperate for scientifically sound information about how to help their children with conditions that are negatively impacting their learning, development, and happiness with a resource that is precise, definitive, and easy to read. Illustrated with examples from across his 30 years of practice, Swingle's book informs readers about the many factors that can affect children's attention and can often be treated with drugless approaches and therapy for success. Parents will understand how intolerance of what constitutes normal children's behavior and the failure to recognize the emotional challenges that many children have in our culture today constitute causative factors in the misdiagnosis of attention deficit disorders. • Provides parents and teachers with critical information that identifies the questions they should ask and points the way to finding a correct diagnosis and curative understanding of treatments • Explains why the error rate for diagnoses of ADHS and many other conditions affecting children's ability to thrive in school is so high • Authored by a highly respected expert on child psychology, neurotherapy, and psychophysiology who is a fellow of the Canadian Psychological Association and has been a lecturer at Harvard

Human Sleep And Cognition
Author: Gerard A. Kerkhof
Publisher: Elsevier
Release Date: 2010
Pages: 216
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This volume focuses on the interplay of mind and motion—the bidirectional link between thought and action. In particular, it investigates the implications that this coupling has for decision making. How do we anticipate the consequences of choices and how is the brain able to represent these choice options and their potential consequences? How are different options evaluated and how is a preferred option selected and implemented? This volume addresses these questions not only through an extensive body of knowledge consisting of individual chapters by international experts, but also through integrative group reports that pave a runway into the future. The understanding of how people make decisions is of common interest to experts working in fields such as psychology, economics, movement science, cognitive neuroscience, neuroinformatics, robotics, and sport science. So far, however, it has mainly been advanced in isolation within distinct research disciplines; in contrast, this book results from a deliberate assembly of multidisciplinary teams. * Offers intense, focused, and genuine interdisciplinary perspective * Conveys state-of-the-art and outlines future research directions on the hot topic of Mind and Motion (or embodied cognition) * Includes contributions from psychologists, neuroscientists, movement scientists, economists, and others
