(Elsevier B.V., 2011-02-24)
The present study attempted to evaluate the effects of chronic intermittent hypoxia (CIH) associated with sleep restriction in hemodynamic parameters and the plasma renin-angiotensin system. Wistar-Hannover rats were ...

Late Effects of Sleep Restriction: Potentiating Weight Gain and Insulin Resistance Arising from a High-Fat Diet in Mice
ObjectiveEpidemiological studies show the association of sleep restriction (SR) with obesity and insulin resistance. Experimental studies are limited to the concurrent or short-term effects of SR. Here, we examined the ...
Sleep rebound attenuates context-dependent behavioural sensitization induced by amphetamine
(Elsevier B.V., 2008-07-01)
We have recently demonstrated that paradoxical sleep deprivation (PSD) potentiates the induction of amphetamine (AMPH)-induced behavioural sensitization by increasing its conditioned component. in the present study, the ...
Progesterone reduces erectile dysfunction in sleep-deprived spontaneously hypertensive rats
(Biomed Central Ltd, 2007-03-01)
Background: Paradoxical sleep deprivation (PSD) associated with cocaine has been shown to enhance genital reflexes (penile erection-PE and ejaculation-EJ) in Wistar rats. Since hypertension predisposes males to erectile ...
