Ilias Ioannis , Ekonomou Nikolas Tiberius , Lekkou Anastasia , Koukkou Eftychia

Introduction-Aim: Manifest dream content is rarely studied in dream research. Conflicting results have been presented regarding dream recall and affect vis-à-vis the menstrual cycle. Progestagens may improve dream recall. Thus, we aimed to assess dream recall/affect vis-à-vis the menstrual cycle in a large sample of women.Subjects-methods: We studied 779 women (mean age +S.D.: 31+9 years). The subjects were give...

Introduction: Exposure to air pollution and in particular to nitrogen dioxide (NO2) or particulate pollutants less than 2.5 µm (PM2.5) or 10 µm (PM10) in diameter has been linked to thyroid (dys)function in pregnant women. The environmental degradation that has occurred in recent years in the region of Athens led us to a local study of air pollution against thyroid function in pregnant women in Athens. We hypothesized that there may be a dose-effect relati...
