Yonglin Gao, Brandon Akers, Michael B Roberts and Rif S El-Mallakh

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: December 23, 2017

Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep deprivation is understood to be associated with more severe negative effects than REM fragmentation. Comparison of the corticosterone response between these patterns of sleep disruption has not been well characterized. Black Swiss mice were exposed to 1-day and 3-day periods of REM deprivation with inverted flower-pot method or REM fragmentation using the moving bar method. ...

Despite being traditionally used herbals to treat mild anxiety and sleep disorders, Valeriana officinalis and Melissa officinalis mechanism of action is not fully understood. While the pattern of mood modulation of both herbals suggests the involvement of the Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid (GABA) ergic system, other changes in the neurotransmitters pathways can provide an explanation for the clinical effects....

Biomimetic Oral Appliance Therapy in Adults with Mild to Moderate Obstructive Sleep Apnea Using Combined Maxillo-Mandibular Correction

G Dave Singh and Samuel E Cress

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: March 17, 2017

Although mandibular advancement devices (MADs) are utilized for the management of mild to moderate OSA, there are concerns about temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ) issues. Biomimetic oral appliance therapy (BOAT) differs from MADs as it aims to achieve midfacial redevelopment in combination with mandibular repositioning. In this study, we tested the hypothesis that mild to moderate cases of OSA can be addressed with combined maxillo-mandibular correction using BOAT....
