ear members,

As we slowly come out of the corona pandemic, we are happy to take this time to highlight the work that has been done in the past year 2021 in the field of sleep research and sleep care. It is heartening to see that, as life goes on despite the circumstances, so does the work. Collaborations have persisted and new ones have even originated, meetings and conferences have been held in online and hybrid forms. This overview shows the tremendous productivity of our national sleep professionals, and their impressive output. The NSWO has hosted our annual spring symposium in 2021, and witnessed the success of our bi-annual national sleep conference with more than 400 registrations. In 2022 the education committee and the young scientist committee jointly organise the spring symposium on the topic of ‘wearables’ (May) and we are the host, together with the SVNL, for the International Sleep Medicine Course ISMC (June). At the WorldSleep meeting in Rome in March 2022, and the upcoming ESRS meeting in Athens in September 2022, our national sleep professionals contribute with numerous symposia and presentations. Sleep science in the Netherlands is alive and well, and expanding. We hope the renewed possibilities for meeting up, exchanging ideas, brainstorming and interacting will lead to even more collaborations and initiatives, from fundamental studies to clinical advances. All the best, Ysbr and D. van der Wer f President NSWO

Sleep in the news

Dutch sleep congress

On November 25-26, 2021, the fourth bi-annual SLAAP2021 conference took place. For the first time via an online platform due to the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions. The conference was kicked-off from a professional broadcasting studio by Ysbrand van der Werf and Gert Jan Lammers, presidents of the organizing societies NSWO and SVNL, respectively, after which a variety of interesting symposia started. Highlight of the first day was the keynote lecture about the evolution of sleep in the octopus by Sylvia Lima de Souza Medeiros from Brazil, where she explained about the fascinating observation of two different and alternating stages of sleep in the octopus, one of which with dynamic skin colour and texture and rapid eye movements, resembling our REM sleep. A session on ‘sleep in times of COVID-19’ with international speakers such as Jason Ellis and Philip Cheng, could not miss in the program this year. An interesting finding was that patients who were treated for insomnia prior to the pandemic, were also more resilient Pag. 4

in keeping up their good sleep during the pandemic.The second day entailed many interesting lectures, but gave also room to the ‘general meeting of members’ (ALV) of the several associations and organizations involved in sleep. Some ALV’s were connected to a lecture, such as in the association for children and sleep (Vereniging Kind & Slaap): the invited Australian speaker Pamela Douglas presented from downunder about innovative techniques to support parents with their newborns’ sleep. At the second day there was an interesting keynote about the role of sleep and chrononutrition by Prof. Andries Kalsbeek, explaining how sleep/wake rhythms and metabolism are related and why meal timing really does matter. In this online format conference, there was a poster session, by which participants could visit the poster on the platform and log into Zoom to ask their questions to the presenters. At the end of day two the poster prizes were awarded: the Piet Visser Poster Price went to Alja Bijlsma for her poster about “Parental reported sleep after very preterm compared to full-term birth: a cohort study in early childhood”, for which she won an exchange trophy and a scholarship. The audience prize was awarded to Danique Heemskerk for her colourful poster entitled: “Sleep is a waste of time!? Understanding adolescent sleep health from a systems science perspective using causal loop diagrams”. The conference ended with a virtual social meeting in an actual virtual theatre in which participants could walk and talk with their avatars… Well, nothing beats meetingup face to face, but participants look back at a very succesful online conference in which many professionals participated, acknowledging the importance of sleep and putting sleep research and sleep care on the map in the Netherlands!

‘De slapelozen’

Time for sleep A selection of Dutch scientists and clinicians, who have made their fascination for sleep their profession, sacrificed some hours of their own sleep to prepare a readable colourful booklet for the general Dutch public to learn about sleep. The booklet called “Tijd voor Slaap” was published in the ‘Cahier’ series of the Dutch Foundation for Biosciences and Society (Stichting Biowetenschappen en Maatschappij, BWM) and is freely available as a pdf (www.biomaatschappij.nl/cahiers). In four chapters, the reader is taken by the hand in comprehensible Dutch language to learn about many facets and faces of sleep. Chapter 1 introduces sleep across the animal kingdom and how we measure sleep, discusses how sleep in the Dutch population changes from childhood to old age, including sleep-related issues ranging from cot death to poor sleep in menopause and old age. Chapter 2 illustrates the importance of good sleep by discussing its many functions. Chapter 3 then discusse how good sleep may be sacrificed by inappropriate environmental exposure and behaviour. Chapter 4 complements causes of poor sleep by discussing the several sleep disorders. Finally, and important for the general public, the Cahier provides a list of suggestions to keep sleep well. The booklet has been well received and has become a valuable source of information for the increasing number of people realizing that there’s more to life than being awake and that there’s more to health than exercise and an appropriate diet and body weight. We can be thankful and proud that our scientists and clinicians have joined forces to prepare this valuable booklet.

sleep professionals were fighting against their sleep and biological rhythm by participating in the radio program “De Slapelozen”, presented by radio producer Frits Spits, broadcasted live between 2h-4h in the night for five nights in a row. In the program, radio listeners tell their night stories and sleep experts and psychologists are interviewed about sleep and sleepiness, alternated with poems and encouraging music in the middle of the night. The program follows people who have actively chosen for a night life, such as shift-workers, creative artists, DJ’s or caregivers, but also people who often find themselves lying in the bed wide awake while they would love to sleep. Also Frits Spits himself shared that, particularly since the death of his wife, he has experienced what insomnia is. ‘Sometimes it is a battle with the digital clock on the bedside table. It is so difficult to fall asleep again’. Sleep professionals from our field contributed to the experiences of sleepless people with valuable background information and answering questions from Frits Spits and listeners. They carefully explained about different topics like the functions of sleep, dreaming, sleep behaviour and biological rhythms. The radio settings were filmed, completed with short documentaries of people’s stories, and broadcasted as a TV series by NPO2 later in the year (Nov 29 – Dec 3), where we could eye witness the nightly soft light setting in Frits Spits’ intimate radio studio. Where the sleepless meet each other…

Covid 19 & Sleep


n 2021 the NSWO started a series of interviews about a relevant topic in sleep science. Here we present our first guest. For further reading on the topic or scientist, check our website.


Page 6

Since the COVID-19 pandemic, it has become clearer than ever: sleep is not a luxury, it is a necessity. The year 2021 was still dominated and impacted by COVID-19 infections and societal lockdown rules. This uncommon situation was topic of several research projects investigating the impact on sleep and the reciprocal relationship between infection and sleep. Heidi Lammers-Van der Holst, senior researcher at the Erasmus Medical Centre, was interviewed about her research in relation to COVID-19. Her international scientific career focuses on the relationship between sleep, biological clock and shift work. With that respect, the question arose whether COVID-19 vaccinations are less effective for people who sleep too little and work in a night shift. A topic that was more relevant in 2021 than ever, as night shift workers are more likely to contract

COVID-19, whereas we also really needed these people to help combat the pandemic. The protocol proposal was published in the Journal of Sleep Research in 2021 and the study results are expected in 2022. With her applied research and consultancy work, Heidi contributes to optimal sleep habits and the health of shift workers. Below, Heidi cites three reasons why a good night’s sleep is so important.

Sleep protects ‘It has been known already for some time: you strengthen your immune system by sleeping well and you are less likely to be infected by a virus. When you are sleeping, you produce more white blood cells and these cells produce cytokines, the messengers of your immune system. And, as a study conducted in 2015 shows, this protects against, for example, viral infections. In this study, 153 people were infected in a laboratory with the rhinovirus, a common viral infection. These people had monitored how well they slept during the 14 days prior to being infected. And indeed, it turned out that lack of sleep increased the likelihood of catching a cold. People who slept less than seven hours, even had a nearly three times higher probability to come down with a cold than people who slept at least eight hours. A larger-scale study in 2016 confirmed these findings. Over 22,000 people, whose sleeping habits were known, indicated whether they had suffered a respiratory infection in the past month. Here again, the conclusion was that those who slept well (at least 7-8 hours) were sick less often. So, does a good night’s sleep also protect against COVID-19? It looks that way. Recent studies show that healthcare workers, who sleep long enough, are less likely to contract a COVID-19 infection. However, there are still many unanswered questions. We are awaiting the results of additional studies, so that we can find out more about the relationship between sleep and the risk of contracting COVID-19.’

Caught a cold nevertheless? Sleep helps you recover ‘A good night’s sleep not only protects you, but if you do catch a cold nevertheless, sleep will help you to recover faster and better. This is also apparent from a study in 2020 of 164 people who were hospitalised after contracting COVID-19. They were asked to fill in a telephone questionnaire about

Sleeping is not only essential to repair the damage caused by viruses, but it also helps your body repair wounds

their lifestyle in the week before they fell ill. A control group of 228 non-patients were also asked to fill in the questionnaire. The shorter people slept before they contracted COVID-19, the greater the likelihood of severe symptoms and a longer hospital stay. That there is also a correlation between sleeping badly and an ICU stay due to a COVID-19 infection is also apparent from another very recent study. Sleeping is not only essential to repair the damage caused by viruses, but it also helps your body repair wounds. This is apparent from a study in 2018, in which researchers inflicted (painless) small blisters on the skin of test persons. They were then divided into two groups. One group slept normally; the other group was only allowed to sleep no more than two hours a night for four days. This lack of sleep had a considerable effect on how fast the wounds healed. The wounds of the persons who slept well healed in four days; the wounds of the night owls took a day longer to heal. In short, sleeping is essential for the self-healing ability of your body.’

Sleep gives your immune system a bonus boost ‘Sleep strengthens your immune system directly and indirectly. Sleeping well helps, for example, to maintain a healthy blood sugar level and a healthy weight, which in turn are important for a strong immune system. Moreover, as a result of a lack of sleep you are more likely to become overweight and have too high blood sugar levels, and that increases the risk of all sorts of diseases, for instance, obesity, diabetes and sleep apnea, a disorder that makes sleeping even more difficult. It is exactly the people who suffer from these disorders who appear to have a higher likelihood of contracting a virus infection such as COVID-19 and becoming seriously ill from this. Fortunately, the opposite also applies, and you can prevent this downward spiral from occurring by sleeping well. In this manner, you can give your immune system an extra positive boost! Page 7

been a golden move. There is a lot of energy to organize things. These young colleagues can develop and grow within the association to participation in other committees.”

How do you look back on your time in the NSWO board?

What would you have the NSWO keep in mind?


“I see quite a change in how I started and what my position is now. At first I was mostly a minutes secretary, answering phone calls and mainly operating as an intermediary for the chairman. The last years I have been the longest acting board member. Therefore, my position developed into being the continuous factor holding the collective memory. For me it went hand-in-hand with my professional development as a fresh starting neurologist. I was actually finishing my residency when I started in the NSWO board. It has been a nice time!”

What are the changes you have seen in the association during your board membership? “At the start there were more clinician members than now, which was also visible in how the board was assembled. In 2015-2016 there was a discussion the R of research needed to have a prominent place in the association. The Dutch Sleep Medicine Association (Slaapgeneeskunde Vereniging Nederland; SVNL) was founded and attracted many somnologists. This has been a big change for the NSWO. I am glad we have developed a pleasant collaboration with the SVNL, for example resulting in our two-yearly national sleep congress and free participation of SVNL members in our spring and fall meetings. This is a huge success. For me, the NSWO is a comprehensive association connecting the research with the clinical field. It is not only interesting for sleep researchers and sleep clinicians to be a member, but also for the sleep technicians. The founding of the Young Scientist committee has

Page 8

“I feel it is important to keep the conversation going with our constituency. Actually, the COVID-19 pandemic made this easier. We have developed new ways of blended care, and hybrid meetings are now familiar for everybody. There are more members present at association meetings than ever. If you ask me as a clinician, I would prefer to keep a clinical somnologist in the board. At least one of them, to clearly and visibly keep the connection with the clinical field. And, not unimportant, I think sponsors like this combination of research and clinicians. It might help to keep the finances healthy.”

When a new secretary is in place, will you stay active in the NSWO? “Probably I will first take a short break. After that I hope to become a member of one of the committees within the association. I will keep advocating that we must keep close connections with the clinical field and maintain our warm relationship with the SVNL.”

Esmée Verwijk is working as a clinical neuropsychologist at the university hospital (AUMC) in our capital and holds a position as assistant professor clinical neuropsychology at the University of Amsterdam. She has been treasurer of the NSWO board since October 2018.

“I was asked by Ysbrand. He told me I might be interested based on my research work. Ysbrand and I had collaborated earlier on several articles. I did check at first how much time it would cost me (laughs), but it seemed doable. What attracted me was the possibility to contribute to further integration of science and clinical work. I did not know the association so well before I started my board membership. It took me roughly a year to get to know the NSWO and the routes within the association and than the COVID-19 pandemic started. Therefore, it was a strange time. I have not been able to see many members in real life! I have missed this, because it would have given me a chance to integrate further. I feel I have been an online treasurer in the background, who tried to innovate administrative processes around memberships and payments. I do feel we were able to modernize this in the last years, but it still needs a maintenance battle. Currently, I am doing the tasks at-interim and the position is open.”

What are you focusing on in your day-to-day work? “I am working in an outpatient neurology clinic. Sleep is never the primary referral reason. But, it is something I always thoroughly focus on when I see my patients. I still observe that this subject is often neglected, which is a great pity. In our multidisciplinary meetings I am always the person bringing up sleep as a factor in the diagnostic and treatment plan of the patient. In addition to being a clinician, research is a big and growing part of my work. The connection between clinical work and research is source of inspiration for me. Most of my research focuses on electroconvulsive therapy (ECT). With regard to sleep, it started for me with a psychiatric patient who spontaneously recovered after sleep deprivation. This caught my interest for chronobiology. In all of my projects I incorporate sleep. For example, is sleep a mediating factor for ECT outcome? Last year I participated in a project on long-term outcomes of COVID-19. There I was also able to prevent the idea that sleep was covered by just adding a question on tiredness.”

What are thoughts you want to leave for the association? “This is a hard question because undoubtedly I have missed things. I see a very enthusiastic group of people. There is a lot of


How do you look back on your board membership at the NSWO?

young blood and innovative ideas. I do feel that as a research association we can position ourselves even further. I feel it is important to bridge the gap to the clinic, because I see increasing interest in sleep in all fields of medicine. Clinicians ought to have a hunger for research information in order to maintain the highest standards in performing their professions. There have been limitations due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but now comes the time we can see and inspire each other in real life again. I am looking forward to that.”

Will you stay active within the NSWO? “I won’t be active in the board anymore or one of the committees, but for sure I will keep my NSWO membership. In my day-to-day work I will always give sleep a prominent place both in research as in the clinic. Ysbrand and I are also active to incorporate sleep education in psychology and medicine bachelor teaching program in Amsterdam. We want to position sleep as a mandatory topic. I will give my best to achieve this. And, I am always available to think along study designs with regard to sleep.” Page 9

Studies on sleep patterns and sleep homeostasis in birds An ecological approach P h D T H E S I S S J O E R D VA N H A S S E LT S U C C E S S F UL LY D E F E ND E D O N 0 5 N O V E MB E R 2 0 2 1 AT T HE R I JKS UNIV E R SI T E I T GR ONINGE N

Sleep is a complex phenomenon that consists of two completely different and alternating states, slow-wave sleep (SWS) and rapid-eye-movement sleep (REM sleep). Each of these two states is thought to play an important role in supporting brain and bodily functions. Yet, how exactly sleep fulfills these functions is a topic of ongoing research and debate. Most of what is known about sleep is derived from studies that were done in mammals under strictly controlled laboratory conditions. However, sleep is not restricted to mammals but is thought to be present in all living animals. Moreover, studies in a laboratory setting may not provide a complete picture of the regulatory processes and functions of sleep under natural conditions. For that reason, I measured sleep in three bird species under both laboratory conditions and semi-natural conditions: the European jackdaw (Coloeus monedula), the European starling (Sturnus vulgaris) and the barnacle goose (Branta leucopsis). The results provide evidence for homeostatic regulation of SWS in birds similar to what has been reported for mammals, but also produced unexpected findings. For example, the geese only showed a rebound of SWS after brief sleep deprivation in summer but not in winter. Also, both geese and starlings displayed strong seasonal variation in the overall amount of sleep. The starling in particular slept 5h per day less in summer than they did in winter. Moreover, both geese and starlings slept about 2h less during full moon nights than new moon nights. Another intriguing finding was the strong variation in REM sleep between the 3 species, which ranged from hardly any REM sleep in starlings to a much higher, mammalian-like amount of REM sleep in jackdaws. Such findings are difficult to reconcile with current theories in the function of REM sleep that are largely based on studies in mammals. Together, these findings in birds indicate that sleep is highly sensitive to environmental factors and suggest a great deal of flexibility in the regulation of sleep under natural conditions.

Page 12

Q&A Sjoerd What is the core message of your thesis? We have shown that sleep under more natural conditions shows an enormous amount of flexibility. This flexibility ranges from starlings that sleep 5 hours more in winter then in summer to barnacle geese that do not recover from sleep deprivation in winter while they do recover to sleep deprivation in summer. Moreover, we found among three bird species a large variation in the presence of REM sleep, from almost no REM sleep in starlings to mammalian-like numbers in Jackdaws. These data fuel the discussion on the function of REM sleep in birds and whether it is homologues to mammalian REM sleep.

What have been your steps after finishing your dissertation? Currently, I am working in the same lab as during my PhD. Now as a postdoc, I want to understand the mechanisms behind the flexibility of sleep across the seasons. We are currently trying to understand whether the seasonal differences in sleep architecture is an endogenously regulated process, or simply a direct response to changing natural photoperiod. We also want to get a better understanding of the function and regulation of REM sleep in birds by selectively depriving them of REM sleep.

What would you recommend to starting researchers in the sleep field? Picture of me in Tobseda, a remote, desolate village in the Russian tundra, together with my first operated barnacle goose. Actually, this is the one that flew back all the way to the Netherlands, the only one with a working GPS on his back.

I would recommend starting sleep researchers to take into account the ecology of sleep. What I have learned over the past years is that natural sleep is much more flexible than sleep in a laboratory. This has not only been reported for animals, also studies in pre-industrialized humans showed seasonal variation in sleep time. For truly understanding the evolution and function of sleep, we occasionally need to go outside the lab.

Sleep in children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia An opportunity to improve well-being P h D T H E S I S L I N D S AY S T E U R S U C C E S S F UL LY D E F E ND E D O N 1 5 J A NU A R Y 2 0 2 1 AT T HE V R I JE UNIV E R SI T E I T A MS T E R DA M

Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) is the most common type of childhood cancer. In the Netherlands, approximately 130 children are newly diagnosed with ALL each year. Survival rates have reached over 90%, due to the establishment of long and intensive chemotherapy regimens and enhanced supportive care. However, both during and after treatment, patients and their families are at risk for impaired quality of life and other adverse effects, amongst which are sleep disturbances. Sleep disturbances are associated with many adverse physical and psychosocial health

Page 14

outcomes, and negative daytime consequences. Children with ALL are vulnerable to sleep problems, presumably due to treatmentrelated toxicities (such as pain, nausea, and infectious diseases), environmental noises during hospitalization, psychological factors (such as, anxiety, distress, and fatigue), and social factors (such as altered parenting strategies, impaired parental psychosocial functioning, and changed social patterns). Knowledge of child sleep and sleep-wake rhythms during and shortly after ALL treatment was limited. Therefore, the main goal of this thesis was to determine the prevalence, predictors, and development of sleep and sleep-wake rhythm disturbances in children with ALL during and after treatment. We found that the prevalence of sleep disturbances was twice as high in children with ALL (38%) compared to healthy children (17%), and that sleep disturbances persisted up to 3 years after diagnosis. Parental sleep, parenting problems, and bedroom sharing were potentially modifiable perpetuating factors that were associated with child sleep. Furthermore, sleep-wake rhythms were disrupted and physical activity levels were reduced during treatment for ALL, which was associated with increased levels of cancer-related fatigue. Based on the results we could conclude that, in order to prevent sleep disturbances in children with ALL, it is important to pay attention to both child and parental sleep and to support parents in coping with their child’s sleep behavior. Implementation of a stepped care intervention could provide opportunities for the prevention and treatment of sleep (-wake rhythm) disturbances in children with ALL. This intervention should include psychoeducation in the first steps and evaluation and treatment of sleep disturbances by a health care professional for patients with persistent sleep problems. Such an intervention aimed at preventing sleep(-wake rhythm) disturbances could be a gateway to improve well-being and thereby increase quality of survival in children with ALL.

Q&A Lindsay What is the core message of your thesis? The prevalence of sleep problems is high in children with ALL and persist up to three years after diagnosis. Sleep problems in children with ALL are associated with parental sleep, parenting problems, and bedroom sharing. In order to prevent sleep disturbances in children with ALL, it is important to pay attention to both child and parental sleep and to support parents in coping with their child’s sleep behavior.

What was the most memorable moment during your PhD? Hard to choose one! There have been many moments of which I hold good memories; the inclusion of the first participant in the study, the last inclusion, wrapping up the data collection, my first publication, presentations at (international) conferences, submitting my final thesis and of course the defense itself.

What have been your steps after finishing your dissertation? While finalizing my dissertation I started with my training to become a pediatrician (AIOS) in the Emma Children’s Hospital, Amsterdam UMC. Furthermore, I am still involved in the com-pletion of some projects from my PhD-research, such as a study on fatigue and quality of life in children with leukemia. Finally, I am also involved in a study currently running in the Emma Children’s Hospital, Amsterdam UMC, about sleep during hospitalization in children with an acute or chronic condition.

The autoimmune hypothesis of narcolepsy and its unexplored clinical features PhD THESIS MINK SCHINKELSHOEK S U C C E S S F UL LY D E F E ND E D O N 1 1 N O V E MB E R 2 0 2 1 AT L E IDE N UNIV E R SI T Y

The autoimmune hypothesis of narcolepsy is that antigens from outside the body trigger an immune response in people susceptible for developing narcolepsy type 1 that leads to an autoimmune attack on the hypocretin-producing neurons in the hypothalamus. The mechanisms involved in the autoimmune hypothesis of narcolepsy are investigated in my thesis. The role of HLA, auto- and cross-reactive T cells is explored and immune cell populations of interest are identified by a new technique, called mass cytometry. The studies in my thesis underline the hypothesis that auto-immunity is highly likely to be involved in the pathogenesis of narcolepsy type 1, even though direct evidence of an auto-immune response could not be demonstrated. Several narcolepsy-specific immune cell populations identified in the thesis could be further investigated in functional testing to assess their role in the auto-immune response leading to narcolepsy type 1. The second part of the thesis assesses unexplored clinical features of narcolepsy, such as weight gain and sleep state misperception. Narcolepsy type 1 is mostly characterized by a pentad of core symptoms: excessive daytime sleepiness, cataplexy, hypnagogic hallucinations, sleep paralysis and disturbed nocturnal sleep. However, many patients experience at least as much interference in their daily life because of more unexplored symptoms of narcolepsy type 1. The study results show that sodium oxybate decreases weight in narcolepsy type 1, especially in women with a high BMI when sodium oxybate use is initiated whereas modafinil does not have this effect. Additionally, sleep state misperception during the daytime naps of the multiple sleep latency test is very common not only in narcolepsy type 1, but also in other hypersomnolence disorders. This should be considered in clinical practice when asking patients about daytime napping.

Page 16

Q&A Mink What is the core message of your thesis? Narcolepsy type 1 is highly likely to be caused by an auto-immune response that involves autoreactive T cells in vulnerable individuals that encounter an external trigger, such as an immune response to a micro-organism. Additionally, more emphasis should be put on symptoms of narcolepsy type 1 that are not in the core symptom pentad, since they have a profound impact on everyday functioning of people with narcolepsy type 1.

What have been your steps after finishing your dissertation? Right now, I am doing my training to become a neurologist (AIOS). In the meantime, I am still involved in research project in the research group led by Gert Jan Lammers and Rolf Fronczek in which I completed my PhD.

How do you use your knowledge from your sleep PhD-studies in your current field? During my clinical rounds, I focus a lot more on the role of sleep in the recovery process of patients that are admitted due to other diseases. Additionally, the experience of completing a PhD is helping me a lot every day when encountering and tackling unexpected setbacks.

Tired of being tired Fatigue and sleep following traumatic brain injury PhD THESIS JESSICA BRUIJEL

fatigue following TBI were explored. In addition, the relationship between sleep disturbances and physical activity following TBI was examined.

In her PhD thesis, Jessica examined sleep and fatigue in people with traumatic brain injury (TBI). TBI refers to a disruption of the function of the brain caused by an external force such as a fall or traffic accident. Sleep disturbances and fatigue are common following TBI and negatively impact social, physical, cognitive, and general functioning. Despite this impact, the experience of fatigue and sleep disturbances following TBI is still poorly understood. In this thesis, novel ways to assess fatigue were examined and the behavioural and neurobiological underpinnings of Page 18

In line with previous research, participants with TBI reported high levels of fatigue and poor sleep quality. These high levels of fatigue could not be explained by higher vulnerability to the fatigue-inducing effects of mental effort or a slower recovery from task-induced fatigue. Jessica therefore concluded in her thesis that fatigue following TBI might be better explained by the complex demands of everyday life such as external (environment) and internal (emotions) factors. When exploring the neurobiological underpinnings, altered striatal connectivity might represent a neural correlate of fatigue and could thus be an underlying mechanism of fatigue following TBI. Due to the multi-dimensional nature of fatigue, assessment of fatigue might best include both subjective and objective measurements. These objective measures might be specifically useful to assess changes in fatigue over time or the effect of interventions aimed at reducing fatigue. Sleep problems following TBI were not associated with decreased physical activity. However, nightly variation in sleep might affect next-day physical activity, suggesting that improving sleep quality might be relevant to support a physically active lifestyle in people with TBI. At the moment, Jessica is still working on an ongoing longitudinal study examining the course of sleep and fatigue within a biopsychosocial model, this study will add to our understanding of fatigue and sleep following TBI.

Q&A Jessica What is the core message of your thesis? Sleep problems and fatigue are very often present in people with TBI. Altered striatal connectivity might present a neuronal correlate of fatigue following TBI and could be further explored to possibly assist in the diagnosis and treatment of fatigue. Nightly variation in sleep might affect next-day physical activity, suggesting that improving sleep quality might be relevant to support a physically active lifestyle in people with TBI. Future studies might benefit from using a biopsychosocial model to explore fatigue and sleep disturbances following brain injury.

What have been your steps after finishing your dissertation? After finishing my PhD in December 2021, I have started a post-doc position at the same department (Neuropsychology and Psychopharmacology, Maastricht University). I am very excited to further develop and continue with projects examining sleep and fatigue after brain injury. In addition, I am now more involved in teaching at the University.

What would you recommend to starting researchers in the sleep field? Do not underestimate the importance of collaboration. Research is not done all by yourself on a little island. In addition, in my experience, everything often takes longer than you expect.

Peer-reviewed publications on sleep/wake-research in The Netherlands

The biology of sleep Sleep is a widespread phenomenon that appears to have developed very early in evolution. Yet, it still feels amazing that an octopus, belonging to the group of mollusks that separated from our own evolutionary line some 600 million year ago, independently from us developed complex sleep, with two alternating states, one of which has some resemblance with our REM sleep. The octopus has a highly developed nervous system and an impressive cognitive capacity. Perhaps such findings suggest that the evolution of complex and multistage sleep has paralleled the evolution of complex brains and behavior. And maybe studying and comparing different groups of animals can therefore teach us about the possible functions of sleep and different sleep stages. While these possible functions of sleep remain a topic of debate and discussion, one theory that certainly gained traction in recent years is the idea that sleep serves to flush our brain and clean it from waste products that accumulate during waking. This process is thought to be facilitated by the brain’s glymphatic system, which primarily during sleep facilitates a flow of cerebrospinal fluid into and through the brain tissue, taking up the waste products on its way. But surely, as many of the papers below suggest, there is more to sleep than just flushing out the dirt. For example, both slow-wave sleep and REM sleep are thought to play a role in regulating neuronal plasticity, which is particularly important during early development of the brain. But also later in adult life, sleep-mediated plasticity may serve to facilitate the formation of new memories. While we generally sleep with our whole brain, the pressure for it may vary across different regions, when the need for sleep has built up in some part of the brain more rapidly than in others. In fact, it has been proposed that high local sleep pressure may be a cause of mind wandering, when certain brain areas depleted of resources go off-line, leaving the rest of the brain in a state of limbo. Importantly, while sleep is strongly affected by how long we are awake, by the things we do and the information that we process, sleep also has a strong genetic component. Such genetic influences should be taken into consideration when trying to understand the mechanisms underlying sleep patterns and individual differences in sleep.

Enlightening Dutch clock research Sleep regulation is highly dependent on circadian clock functioning. Viewing the publications from the field of circadian rhythms, it is striking that a wide range of sub-themes is covered by Dutch research groups: topics range from fundamental research on clock genes and SCN network structures, to field studies on sleep patterns in shift workers. Interestingly, new promising techniques were applied, for instance the idea of ‘chronophotopharmacology’. With the use of a photoswitchable derivate that inhibits the enzyme casein kinase I (CKI, essential in the timekeeping molecular loop), quantitative and light-inducible control over the CKI activity was achieved in cultured cells, thereby facilitating a temporary modulation of the circadian period length by light (Kolarski et al). Several publications reported on behavioural or physiological responses to light exposure, either to unravel the underlying mechanisms of entrainment, or to study how to optimize the light (and dark) conditions in specific populations, such as hospitalized people, athletes, elderly, people with mood disorders and shift workers. With respect to the mechanisms, the contribution of classical photoreceptors to the photoentrainment pathway, in addition to melanopsin signaling, is still intriguing. The finding that both cone subtypes in mice contribute, each in a different way (Van Diepen et al.), implicates a broad spectral sensitivity range of the circadian system. There is also increasing attention for entraining signals other than light. For instance, behavioural arousal stimuli may act as a potent Zeitgeber; major question is to look for the circadian windows of sensitivity to behavioural arousal (Jha et al.). Also the timing of food intake, so-called ‘chrononutrition’, is a fast emerging field. It was subject of the keynote lecture at ‘SLAAP2021’ by Prof. Dries Kalsbeek and increasing knowledge may lead to many applications, such as the time-restricted feeding protocols on the intensive care units (Veldscholte et al.). The timing of light, exercise and food intake is highly relevant to incorporate into lifestyle medicine, to prevent or reduce negative health outcomes, especially in groups at risk such as shift workers. So far, just a glimpse of the extensive research from Dutch ground, with much more to come in the upcoming years, also from the multiproject ‘BioClock Consortium’ that started last year.

Sleep across the lifespan: It’s the numbers that count Browsing through the lifespan publications one striking observation is the fast numbers of participants in the studies published this year. If there are not over 1000 participants in the final study, then at least the study starts out with an initial number of over 1000 putative participants. Number one is the twin study of Vermeulen et al., where 12803 twins participated. Does this mean that we are dealing here with over 25000 participants? No, but still 12803 individuals is quite an achievement. Conclusion from that study, among others, is that sleep quality is more important than sleep quantity. All these studies are contrasted by the study from Zuidersma et al., which is using the ‘n-of-1’ approach, where a limited number of older participants is followed, but then over 63 consecutive days. This allows for a temporal association between other symptoms and sleep variables. Finally, there are two reviews from Buijink and Michel, and Panagiotou et al. Both on aging; one focusing on circadian rhythms, the other on sleep. They include model studies in rodents and human data. Reading those should give a good overview of the present state of fundamental research on sleep and circadian rhythms in aging.

Advances in sleep monitoring methods Increasingly fast advances in technology keep changing the field of sleep monitoring and diagnostics. It is great to see that Dutch researchers continue to play a role in this field. International collaborations are highly important in this respect, particularly as artificial intelligence (AI) based methods rely on large amounts of high quality and annotated data. In the past year, several research themes emerge from Dutch groups. There were several important contributions on automated sleep scoring based on EEG. Although this is an area where methods have been available for a relatively long time, advances are still being made. Not only to increase performance and reliability, but also to optimize methods in order to apply them on longer term datasets, and to provide ‘interpretability’: how do these automated models come to their conclusions? The latter is crucial to further foster update in clinical settings. Another theme that can be discerned, is to use personal media – most notably smart phones- to provide input for sleep and especially circadian assessments. Druijff-van de Woestijne and colleagues showed the patterns of smartphone keyboard activity, provide a way to assess rest-activity patterns. Massar et al. combined phone-use data with wearables to identify different traits in nocturnal sleep behavior. Finally, several publications reported on new algorithms to use wearable technology for sleep staging. For example, Wulterkens and colleagues leveraged recently obtained clinical datasets combining gold standard polysomnography and wrist-worn photoplethysmography to develop sleep-staging algorithms that reach adequate performance metrics even in sleep-disordered patients. In the coming years, we will need to assess all these new technologies to determine their place not only in basis sleep research, but in clinical diagnostics as well. P R O F.

Insomnia: Synthesizing the evidence It was the year of bringing the evidence together for Dutch research on insomnia. Many meta-analyses and reviews were published on a wide range of topics: from the genetics of insomnia to spectral EEG findings in insomnia, from (digital) CBT to music therapy. Original research studies showed interesting findings tapping into the mechanisms of insomnia and its treatment. For example, Hermans et al. found that people with insomnia have an increased fragmentation of NREM sleep, but not necessarily of REM sleep. Additionally, Blanken et al. showed that behavioral components of CBT particularly affected sleep efficiency, difficulty maintaining sleep and dissatisfaction, while the cognitive components affected daily functioning, difficulty initiating sleep, early morning awakenings and worries about sleep. Lastly, Fitriani et al. demonstrated that the pleasure of engaging with a digital treatment is an important component for behavior intention, emphasizing its’ importance for improving engagement and attrition in treatment. And more interesting work on insomnia interventions is in the making, in the past year an RCT protocol on investigating the application of online guided CBT in youth and two RCT protocols on the combination of CBT for insomnia with amitriptyline were published, so plenty to watch out for in 2022!

Narcolepsy and Central Disorders of Hypersomnolence (CDH) Central Disorders of Hypersomnolence are characterized by the complaint ‘excessive daytime sleepiness’, which goes hand in hand with ‘decreased vigilance’. Historically, hypersomnolence research in the Netherlands has always had a focus on both these aspects. In 2021, this has lead to several publications, varying from a paper covering the concept ‘vigilance’, to practical issues involving on-the-road-driving performance. In recent years, the treatment options for Central Disorders of Hypersomnolence have expanded. This has led to an updated treatment guideline with involvement of experts from The Netherlands. As part of these guidelines, even the diagnostic criteria for hypersomnolence disorders were critically appraised and found lacking. Together with other European experts a new classification concept has been proposed which will hopefully be adopted in the coming years. The last years were also characterized by the exciting development of hypocretin agonists. A clinical trial testing one of these compounds started in 2021. Unfortunately, it had to be stopped due to safety precautions. New trials will hopefully be initiated soon. To conclude, 2021 was also very much defined by COVID-19 and social distancing, which also had an impact on people with sleep disorders. This has led to a Dutch publication about this topic focusing on children with narcolepsy. Luckily, COVID-19 does not seem to be linked to the auto-immune development of narcolepsy type 1. Still, an incidence peak in 2013 was discovered last year, possible linked to viruses active that year.

Sleep apnea research in the Netherlands Like last year, an impressive track record list has been observed in the field of sleep-disordered breathing when looking to the output from the different research groups and hospitals active in this area in the Netherlands. Altogether, 50+ papers were identified, including contributions in the area of dental sleep medicine and mandibular advancement therapy. Up to present, the focus in most studies is on patient selection, prediction of outcome, and treatment monitoring, mainly for non-CPAP therapies (like maxillomandibular advancement therapy, upper airway surgery, hypoglossal nerve stimulation, maxillo-mandibular osteotomy and bariatric surgery). There is also a rising interest for the role of obstructive sleep apnea in the context of atrial fibrillation (with 9 papers from 1 research group). Two groups were also successful in publishing a meta-analysis with different comparisons, reflecting the high level of available expertise and the outstanding quality of the research performed. This is certainly a good sign for more fresh fruit the coming years. P R O F.

Parasomnias & movement disorders It is good to see that more studies are emerging in the field of parasomnias. For instance, Brederoo and colleagues showed that fragmented sleep in particular is related to the occurrence of hallucinations. This supports the notion that fragmented sleep may be an important pathway for psychopathology. This may apply specifically to disturbed REM. The study of ‘Lucid dreaming’ may help us to learn more about this REM sleep stage. It is therefore interesting to see that new techniques such as VR-training may enhance lucid dreaming ability (Gott et al.). This may eventually open new avenues in the treatment of REM disturbances. Nonetheless there are already effective treatments for parasomnias such as nightmare disorder. It is promising that these can be effectively delivered remotely by inexperienced therapists and with relatively little time investment (Lancee et al.). Treatment knowledge is also an issue for restless legs syndrome. This disorder still receives relatively little attention. This is a missed opportunity since it is associated with significant personal burden and substantial cost (Trekwalder et al.). For this reason it is of major importance that professionals are better trained and educated (Deerenberg et al.) JA AP L ANCEE, PhD – UNIVERSIT Y OF AMSTERDAM, AMSTERDAM

Sleep and mental health: predictive capacities and treatment opportunities In these challenging times Dutch researchers have been quite productive in contributing to the growing amount of evidence for the close relationship between sleep and mental health. We see publications over a broad range of psychiatric disorders, from ADHD to bipolar disorder to PTSD. Most studies further disentangle sleep and sleep-wake pattern characteristics among and within psychiatric diagnoses. Such results are helpful, as these characteristics may reflect easily assessable predictors or biomarkers that might help shape the psychiatric treatment plan. Especially (but not solely) in the field of mood disorders this approach resulted in multiple interesting papers in the last year. That strategies to improve sleep in addition to regular psychiatric treatment help psychiatric patients recover faster, is something researchers in this field do not need to be convinced of anymore. A study confirming this approach once again comes from Van Andel et al. Still, an important task remains to disseminate this knowledge to psychiatric health care workers in general. We know that more Dutch sleep interventions studies are underway and look forward to the results in the coming years.
