失眠注意控制反应抑制认知抑制脑机制Insomnia Attention Control Response Inhibition Cognitive Inhibition Brain Mechanism



The impairment of inhibitory control plays an important role in the development and mainten-ance of insomnia. The injury on inhibitory control of insomnia disorder included attention control, response inhibition, and cognitive inhibition, but most researches focused on the injury of attention control. The damage of cognitive inhibition and response inhibition is remaining controversial. However, the damage of structure and function in prefrontal cortex, hippocampus, and thalamus in resting state, and prefrontal hypoactivation in task may point out the impairment. The common mechanisms of the three injury inhibitory control functions may be derived from right middle frontal gyri. Future researches need focus on the intervention on impaired inhibitory control, promote the research of cognitive inhibition in patients with insomnia, and investigate the relationship between inhibitory control, insomnia duration and its severity. Thus we can fully explore the causes of the impaired inhibitory control and find its corresponding intervention methods.
