Sleep - Circuits and Functions

£22.50

Product description

An estimated 40 million Americans and millions of others worldwide suffer from some type of sleep disruption or disorder, and these numbers are rapidly increasing. As biomedical technologies advance our understanding of sleep, a wave of developments in sleep research and the emergence of new technologies offer hope and help for a good night's sleep. Sleep: Circuits and Functions discusses the major discoveries related to the circuits responsible for slow wave sleep, REM sleep, narcolepsy, and the possible role of sleep in memory and developmental processes. World-renowned researcher Pierre-Herv Luppi and a panel of expert contributors highlight advances in sleep research obtained by means of promising technologies. Data obtained by differential gene expression analysis, transgenic mice, and functional imaging is presented, as well as theoretical concepts on the mechanisms regulating sleep. Updating our knowledge of the strides made in sleep research, this comprehensive book also identifies future research opportunities in this growing field. It is an essential resource for medical professionals and researchers who aim to finally put sleep disorders to bed.

Note - this is an ex-BMA library book, but in very good condition. Library stamps and stickers on covers, flyleaf, title page.
