Год издания: 2004Количество страниц: 251
Book DescriptionThis comprehensive book discusses the major discoveries on the circuits responsible for slow wave sleep (SWS) and rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, narcolepsy, and the possible role of sleep in memory and developmental processes. It also presents recent advances in sleep research obtained by means of emerging technologies. Sleep: Circuits and Function includes new data obtained by differential gene expression analysis, transgenic mice, and functional imaging, as well as new theoretical concepts on the mechanisms regulating sleep.
