Sleep loss causes social withdrawal and loneliness.

Related Articles Sleep loss causes social withdrawal and loneliness. Nat Commun. 2018 08 14;9(1):3146 Authors: Ben Simon E, Walker MP Abstract Loneliness and social isolation markedly increase mortality risk, and are linked to numerous mental and physical comorbidities, including sleep disruption. But does sleep loss causally trigger loneliness? Here, we demonstrate that a lack of […]

Related Articles Accelerating quantitative susceptibility imaging acquisition using compressed sensing. Phys Med Biol. 2018 Nov 15;: Authors: Wang N, Cofer G, Anderson RJ, Qi Y, Liu C, Johnson GA Abstract To evaluate the feasibility of compressed sensing (CS) for accelerating quantitative susceptibility mapping (QSM) acquisition in MR histology, control, demyelination, and remyelination mice were scanned […]

Sex, Sleep Deprivation, and the Anxious Brain.

Related Articles Sex, Sleep Deprivation, and the Anxious Brain. J Cogn Neurosci. 2018 04;30(4):565-578 Authors: Goldstein-Piekarski AN, Greer SM, Saletin JM, Harvey AG, Williams LM, Walker MP Abstract Insufficient sleep is a known trigger of anxiety. Nevertheless, not everyone experiences these effects to the same extent. One determining factor is sex, wherein women experience a […]

Quantitative Anatomical Evidence for a Dorsoventral and Rostrocaudal Segregation within the Nonhuman Primate Frontal Cortex.
