Non-Rapid Eye Movement Sleep Disorder
Resources for Patients and Caregivers
Non-rapid eye movement sleep, also known as quiescent sleep, is, collectively, sleep stages 1–3, previously known as stages 1–4. Rapid eye movement sleep is not included. There are distinct electroencephalographic and other characteristics seen in each stage.

- Automation of classification of sleep stages and estimation of sleep efficiency using actigraphyby Hyejin Kim on January 26, 2023
INTRODUCTION: Sleep is a fundamental and essential physiological process for recovering physiological function. Sleep disturbance or deprivation has been known to be a causative factor of various physiological and psychological disorders. Therefore, sleep evaluation is vital for diagnosing or monitoring those disorders. Although PSG (polysomnography) has been the gold standard for assessing sleep quality and classifying sleep stages, PSG has various limitations for common uses. In substitution...
- Owner-rated hyperactivity/impulsivity is associated with sleep efficiency in family dogs: a non-invasive EEG studyby Cecília Carreiro on January 23, 2023
Subjective sleep disturbances are reported by humans with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). However, no consistent objective findings related to sleep disturbances led to the removal of sleep problems from ADHD diagnostic criteria. Dogs have been used as a model for human ADHD with questionnaires validated for this purpose. Also, their sleep physiology can be measured by non-invasive methods similarly to humans. In the current study, we recorded spontaneous sleep EEG in family...
- Can Immersive Sound Therapy Counteract Neurodegeneration by Enhancing Glymphatic Clearance? Comment on Sachdeva et al. Effects of Sound Interventions on the Permeability of the Blood-Brain Barrier and Meningeal Lymphatic Clearance. Brain Sci. 2022, 12, 742by Peter Wostyn on January 21, 2023
We would like to congratulate Sachdeva and colleagues for establishing an informative review regarding the effects of music/sound exposure on blood-brain barrier permeability and meningeal lymphatic/glymphatic clearance, and would appreciate the opportunity to make a comment. The review by Sachdeva and colleagues documents the beneficial effects of sound interventions on blood-brain barrier permeability and the activity of the meningeal lymphatic/glymphatic system. The authors further note that...
- A single night of moderate at-home sleep restriction increases hunger and food intake in overweight young adultsby Rodrigo Chamorro on January 20, 2023
CONCLUSIONS: An acute moderate at-home sleep restriction exacerbated food intake and feelings of hunger, and impaired blood pressure and heart rate regulation in young, overweight adults.
