James Fadden

James Fadden, aka, LivingwithN24, has written a post discussing the latest advances in N24-related scientific research to celebrate N24 Awareness Day.

excerpt:

“These results suggest that a longer-than-average intrinsic period is a component of N24, but it is not the only causative factor. Other factors, such differences in phase angle between sleep and temperature rhythms, as found in several studies, may play a role.”

About unstrangemind

I am an adult Autistic. I've come so far; I have so far to go. I've named my blog after Grinker's excellent book, "Unstrange Minds: Remapping the World of Autism." Other than borrowing from his title (do you know how difficult it is to find a wordpress name that hasn't already been taken?!) I have no connection with Dr. Grinker.

  1. I want to share the comment I have attempted to leave on each of the sites listed as related content: to my 2013 N-24 Awareness Day article
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    November 24th is N-24 Awareness Day and we need YOUR help!

    YOUR article is linked as Related Content to my 2013 N-24 post — which also contains, among other useful sleep disorders information, links to a relatively new non-profit, The Circadian Sleep Disorders Network [CSDN]. Please take the time to check it out and share the information with your clients and readers. THANKS.

    N-24 is one of the disorders of sleep TIMING — Delayed (and Advanced) Sleep Phase Disorders are 2 more. In N-24 a person’s brain and body, essentially, insist that the day is longer than 24 hours, so sufferers are unable to sleep until later and later each night — how *much* later each night depends on how much longer their “body-day” is than the standard 24 hour day here on earth.

    As you can imagine, sufferers who are ABLE to maintain employment live seriously sleep-deprived and suffer the health consequences, since they cannot fall asleep early enough to be rested before morning comes and it’s time to get to work!

    UNFORTUNATELY, N-24 is (almost always) reported to affect primarily the blind, who cannot see to rephase to light . The SAD reality is that is has rarely been **studied** in the MANY individuals in the sighted community — so there is currently NO scientific basis for that rumor, contrasted with a great deal of anecdotal report that it is inaccurate.

    CSDN hopes to increase the availability of Circadian Sleep Disorders information on the web while correcting the misinformation (EVEN on almost every other sleep site that hasn’t yet responded). They are lobbying for more research leading to more effective treatment options for the ENTIRE sleep disorders community, with a focus on disorders of sleep-TIMING.
