Handbook of Sleep Research,
Edition 1
Hans Dringenberg

Publication Date: 22 Jun 2019

Handbook of Sleep Research, Volume 30, provides a comprehensive review of the current status of the neuroscience of sleep research. It begins with an overview of the neural, hormonal and genetic mechanisms of sleep and wake regulation before outlining the various proposed functions of sleep and the role it plays in plasticity, and in learning and memory. Finally, the book discusses disorders of sleep and waking, covering both lifestyle factors that cause disrupted sleep and psychiatric and neurological conditions that contribute to disorders.

Key Features

  • Emphasizes a comparative and multidisciplinary approach to the topic of sleep
  • Covers the neurobiology and physiology of sleep stages, mechanisms of waking, and dreaming
  • Discusses in detail the proposed functions of sleep, from health and rest, to memory consolidation and synaptic plasticity
  • Examines the current state of research in mammalian and non-mammalian species, ranging from primates to invertebrates
