Special Issue "Insomnia: Beyond Hyperarousal"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 January 2020).
The special issue will deal with pathophysiological signs of insomnia as well as with phenomenological ones. For example, is EEG still informative or which information shall be taken from the EEG to advance insomnia research? Does cognitive ‘hyperarousal’ really exist? Is ‘hyperarousal’ outdated? What happens to ‘hyperarousal’ after treatment? Should reduction in ‘hyperarousal’ be an endpoint to treatment efficacy? There is a paucity of data also related to those individuals at risk to not benefit from CBT-I. What should we propose?
This new issue on insomnia, as for insomnia individuals, will deal with a diversity of subjects. We welcome those researchers with exciting data on comorbid conditions to submit their paper as well as others with new approaches to the insomnia phenomenon. You exercise research in a clinical setting which provides data (EEG, PSG, MRI, etc) which might shed some light on the pathophysiology of insomnia, and your paper is welcome. You deal with cultural and/or social issues which might provide some insights on treatment efficacy and impairs daytime functioning? Again you are welcome to share your findings with us.
Another part of insomnia which remains quite unexplored, is in children part of this issue can easily be dedicated to sleep in children.
We aim to set forward new thinking about insomnia research, unchartered territories needing to be explored. Review, meta-analysis, pre-post treatment data, etc. are welcome.
