Sleep plays an active role in supporting adaptive physiological functions. However, people in modern societies are suffering from inadequate sleep, various sleep disorders, and their consequences. Growing evidence has demonstrated that sleep loss in healthy subjects and patients with sleep disorders is commonly associated with mood and cognitive disorders, especially major depressive disorders and dementia. However, the pathophysiological mechanisms of their interrelationship, epidemiological risk factors, and potential mediating factors still remain misunderstood. Moreover, suitable pharmacological and non-pharmacological studies on subjects with sleep disturbance with neuropsychiatric comorbidities are lacking.

The current Research Topic welcomes leading experts in the field to submit their studies on healthy subjects with sleep deprivation/disturbance, as well as patients with sleep disorders with neuropsychiatric comorbidities to build a better neurobiological understanding of sleep deprivation/ sleep disorders, the link between sleep and neuropsychiatric comorbidities, and potential treatment approaches.

The subtopics include, but are not limited to, studies of the following conditions:
• Sleep deprivation, mood disturbance, and cognitive functions
• Shift-work sleep disorders
• Circadian disorders
• Sleep disturbance in medical conditions
• Insomnia and hypersomnia
• Obstructive sleep apnoea
• Narcolepsy
• Periodic limb movement

Investigated using the following designs, but not limited to: Cross-sectional, longitudinal, epidemiological, clinical trials, as well as meta-analyses and systematic reviews.


Keywords: Sleep, Sleep deprivation, Sleep disorders, Neuropsychiatric disorders, Co-morbidity, Brain
