Sleep Neurobehavioral Functioning and Behavior Problems in School-Age Children Avi Sadeh Reut Gruber and Amiran Raviv wrote the article Sleep Neurobehavioral Functioning and Behavior Problems in School-Age Children in 2000 which may be found in the journal Child Development volume 73 number 2 on pages 405-417 The article was written about a study conducted in order explore the associations between sleep and neurobehavioral functioning NBF in everyday children of the school age using objective measures focusing on whether younger children would show a stronger effect with sleep disruptions than older children It was hypothesized that the early morning NBF would have a stronger association with sleep quality than the NBF later in the day Also it was hypothesized that tasks that involved more complex cognitive functions and required sustained involvement of the attention system would show higher relationship with sleep variations as opposed to the more simple motor or memory tasks In order to conduct this study one hundred and thirty-five children were studied from one of three age groups Second grade 48 students ages 72 - 86 years fourth grade 36 students ages 93 - 104 years and sixth grade 51 students ages 112 - 127 years Only children with acute physical illness and children receiving medication were excluded from the study in order to obtain an accurate reading Most of the children came from small two-parent middle- to upper-class families whose parents were well educated 38 percent of the children were firstborn To begin the procedure the parents of the children completed a number of questionnaires including one of family background material and the Child Behavior Checklist CBCL Within the following two to four weeks the childrens sleep and NBF were evaluated They were tested twice within the same week with the Neurobehavioral Evaluation System NES in school and their sleep was assessed at home using actigraphs The first NBF test was performed randomly by each child either in the morning from 800-900am
