CRC Press, Sep 22, 1999 - Medical - 444 pages
This book examines the neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and neuroclinical aspects of sleep and asserts that all sleep problems originate in brain dysfunction, whether structural as in brain tumors, behavioral as in insomnia, degenerative as in fatal familial insomnia, neurochemical as in narcolepsy, or neuromuscular as in sleep apnea.
Examines the role of melatonin in sleep initiation and maintenance!
Written by a varied group of international experts who focus on the fabric of neurological mechanisms and manifestations that underlie sleep, Sleep Disorders and Neurological Disease
  • investigates the refreshing properties of sleep and its influence on alertness, attention, concentration, memory, and mood
  • describes sleep dysfunction resulting from common neurological disorders, including Parkinson's disease and multiple sclerosis
  • explains intrinsic sleep disorders such as narcolepsy and idiopathic CNS hypersomnia
  • outlines the historical development of the neurochemistry, electrophysiology, neurophysiology, and chronobiology of sleep disorders
  • investigates sleep pathology and sleep disorder medications
  • discusses parasomnias, including sleep-wake transition and arousal disorders
  • covers state dissociations such as Charles Bonnet syndrome and phantom limb phenomena
  • suggests treatments for improving the sleep of patients with extrapyramidal disorders
  • and more!
