This volume explores sleep medicine, sleep science, and the
sleep disorders that keep one-quarter of the U.S. population from
getting this necessary component of normal cognitive functioning
With an emphasis on diagnostic techniques, particularly imaging,
this handbook shines newfound attention on the genetic and clinical
aspects of sleep medicine. Advances in basic science are explored,
including a better understanding of sleep-wakefulness and new
models of rapid eye movement (REM) sleep mechanisms. Advancements
in the understanding of sleep-wake-dependent genes, gene products,
and the role of sleep duration in mortality and morbidity are also
presented, along with fascinating noninvasive neuroimaging studies
that demonstrate marked changes in function during different sleep
Clinicians will gain new insights into the diagnosis of sleep
disorders and sleep science. In addition, researchers will have an
invaluable tool that will form a foundation for new approaches into
the ongoing study of sleep medicine.
* A comprehensive resource for the study of sleep science, sleep
medicine, and sleep disorders
* Fascinating noninvasive neuroimaging studies that demonstrate
marked changes during different sleep states
* A state-of-the-art reference that summarizes the clinical
features and management of many of the neurological manifestations
of sleep disorders
