Higher Prevalence of Psychiatric Symptoms Found in Children with Epilepsy: Gender Plays Major Role in Development of Psychiatric Problems
A newly published report in Epilepsia, official journal of the International League Against Epilepsy, reveals that children with epilepsy are more likely to have psychiatric symptoms, with gender a determining factor in their development. Findings showed that girls had more emotional problems, while boys had more hyperactivity/inattention problems and issues regarding peer relationships.

Special Journal Issues and News
Special Issue: Sleep substances, sleep architecture, and sleep sociology - Centennial anniversary of the first discovery of sleep substances
At the beginning of the 20th century, Kuniomi Ishimori of Japan and Henri Piéron of France independently found that a dog will fall asleep after receiving an intracerebral injection of a brain extract or cerebrospinal fluid from another dog kept without sleep for a long time, and predicted the presence of "sleep substances" that accumulated in the brain while the animal was awake.
On 24–27 October 2009, the Japanese Society of Sleep Research (JSSR) celebrated the centennial anniversary of Kuniomi Ishimori's landmark paper, "Sleep-inducing substance(s) demonstrated in the brain parenchyma of sleep-deprived animals − a true cause of sleep", at a joint congress in the City of Osaka.
Sleep professionals from around the world participated in the joint congress, and have kindly contributed their summaries of recent developments in sleep science to this special issue of Sleep and Biological Rhythms.
