Reducing total calories may be more effective for weight loss than intermittent fasting

Timing from first meal to last meal was not associated with weight loss in a six-year study: Eating less overall and fewer large meals may be a more effective weight management strategy than restricting meals to a narrow time window, such as intermittent fasting, according to a study that analyzed the electronic health records of about 550 adults who were followed for six years. The time interval from first to last meal was not associated with weight change during the six-year study ..read more

Could a nasal spray treat sleep apnea?
Insomnia Research News -- ScienceDaily
by
1M ago
A drug in development for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) has shown promising results, after researchers tested the treatment in people for the first time. Designed to prevent the narrowing or collapse of the upper airways during sleep, a key factor in OSA, the treatment could prove to be a potential alternative for certain people with OSA to continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machines, which can only be tolerated by about half of all OSA sufferers ..read more

Casting light on, and through, your eyelids
Insomnia Research News -- ScienceDaily
by
1M ago
Scientists measured the light transmittance of the eyelids when the eyes are closed, and found that perceived closed-eye brightness is significantly stronger than previously reported. The influence of color was also observed, with red light perceived as brighter and blue light perceived as darker. Additionally, there were significant differences between experimental participants; for some, their perception of brightness barely differed between open- and closed-eye conditions ..read more

Unraveling the secrets of a good night's sleep
Insomnia Research News -- ScienceDaily
by
1M ago
Researchers have identified a signaling pathway that regulates sleep. By studying genetic mutations in mice, they were able to show that an enzyme called histone deacetylase 4 (HDAC4), which is known to suppress gene expression, plays a key role in regulating the amount and depth of sleep. Further experiments revealed that this regulatory signaling in the excitatory neurons of the cortex and hypothalamus regulates sleep quantity and quality, respectively ..read more

Trouble falling asleep at night? Chase that daytime light, study shows
Insomnia Research News -- ScienceDaily
by
1M ago
A study measuring the sleep patterns of students found that students fell asleep later in the evening and woke up later in the morning during winter. Students also received less natural light exposure during the winter, when daylight hours on the campus are limited and the skies are notoriously overcast. The researchers believe this lack of daytime light exposure triggered the delayed winter bedtimes by 'pushing back' (or delaying) their natural circadian cycle. Getting outside in the morning, even on cloudy days, is the best way to prevent this circadian delay, they say ..read more
