    Department of Neurology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA 02215, USA
    Biol Res Nurs 12:47-53. 2010
    ..We evaluated the effects of sleep restriction on leptin levels in a large, diverse sample of healthy participants, while allowing free access to food...
  2. pmc Effects of sleep restriction on adiponectin levels in healthy men and women
    Norah S Simpson
    Department of Neurology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center Harvard Medical School, 330 Brookline Ave DA 779, Boston, MA 02215, United States
    Physiol Behav 101:693-8. 2010
    ..Adiponectin is an adipocyte-derived, anti-inflammatory hormone that is related to cardiovascular disease risk. We hypothesized that sleep restriction would reduce adiponectin levels in healthy young adults...
  3. ncbi Altered regional blood volume in chronic cannabis smokers
    Jennifer T Sneider
    Cognitive Neuroimaging Laboratory, Brain Imaging Center, McLean Hospital, Belmont, MA 02478, USA
    Exp Clin Psychopharmacol 14:422-8. 2006
    ..It would be of interest to extend the investigation beyond 6-36 hr of abstinence from cannabis to determine whether increased CBV values persist for several weeks or eventually normalize...
  4. doi Increased amygdala fMRI activation after secretin administration
    Deborah A Yurgelun-Todd
    Neuroimaging Laboratory, McLean Hospital Harvard Medical School, Belmont, MA 02478 9106, USA
    Exp Clin Psychopharmacol 16:191-8. 2008
    ..The presence of increased activation of the amygdala during the viewing of fearful faces is consistent with findings from animal studies and suggests a mechanism by which secretin may modulate social behavior...
  5. pmc Differences in regional blood volume during a 28-day period of abstinence in chronic cannabis smokers
    Jennifer T Sneider
    Cognitive Neuroimaging Laboratory, Brain Imaging Center, McLean Hospital, Belmont, MA 02478, United States
    Eur Neuropsychopharmacol 18:612-9. 2008
    ..These findings suggest that while CBV levels begin to normalize with continued abstinence from cannabis, specifically in frontal areas, other temporal and cerebellar brain regions show slower CBV decreases...
  6. pmc Sleep loss and inflammation
    Janet M Mullington
    Department of Neurology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Harvard Medical School, 330 Brookline Avenue, Boston, MA 02215, USA
    Best Pract Res Clin Endocrinol Metab 24:775-84. 2010
    ..Although the mechanism of this altered inflammatory status in humans undergoing experimental sleep loss is unknown, it is likely that autonomic activation and metabolic changes play key roles...

    Golfo K Tzilos
    Cognitive Neuroimaging Laboratory, Brain Imaging Center, McLean Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Belmont, MA 02478, USA
    Am J Addict 14:64-72. 2005
    ..These findings are consistent with recent literature suggesting that cannabis use is not associated with structural changes within the brain as a whole or the hippocampus in particular...
