Snoring and Insomnia – Neurocognitive Consequences in Professional Athletes

Reference:Thornton A, Maijer R, Schramm P. Snoring and Insomnia – Neurocognitive consequences in Professional Athletes. Sleep Medicine 2017. DOI: 10.1016/j.sleep.2017.11.960 Objectives:Professional athletes often describe sleep maintenance insomnia. Resulting sleep deprivation can impact daytime performance, perception of effort, and cognitive function.  Neurocognitive domains including psychomotor speed, vigilant attention, and task-oriented, cognitive function are vulnerable to insomnia.
