The interrelation of sleep and mental and physical health is anchored in grey-matter neuroanatomy and under genetic control

AbstractHumans need about seven to nine hours of sleep per night. Sleep habits are heritable, associated with brain function and structure, and intrinsically related to well-being, mental, and physical health. However, the biological basis of the interplay of sleep and health is incompletely understood. Here we show, by combining neuroimaging and behavioral genetic approaches in two independent large-scale datasets (HCP (n = 1106), age range: 22-37, eNKI (n = 783), age range: 12-85), that sleep, mental, and physical health have a shared neurobiological basis in grey matter anatomy; and that these relationships are driven by shared genetic factors. Though local associations between sleep and cortical thickness were inconsistent across samples, we identified two robust latent components, highlighting the multivariate interdigitation of sleep, intelligence, BMI, depression, and macroscale cortical structure. Our observations provide a system-level perspective on the interrelation of sleep, mental, and physical conditions, anchored in grey-matter neuroanatomy. Copyright 2020, The Author(s).
DescriptionCorrection to: Communications Biology https://doi.org/10.1038/s42003-020-0892-6. Accessible at http://doi.org/10.1038/s42003-020-1017-y. In the original published version of the article, the Methods section entitled “Statistics and reproducibility” incorrectly stated that the coefficient of relationship between individuals in the HCP sample was computed using the KING method. However, the coefficient of relationship was computed using self-reported twin status data. The error has been corrected in the HTML and PDF versions of the paper.
