Synopsis

The phenomena of sleep and awakening exert a tremendous influence over our consciousness, behavior, and thoughts. The subfield of brain science known as sleep science has been advancing rapidly in recent years, and Japanese researchers have been among those making major contributions to the field. In this book, front-line investigators who are leaders in their respective fields discuss the history of sleep science to date and make projections for the future. From the fundamental mechanisms that regulate sleep and awakening to questions of social impact, such as the relationship between sleep and aging and the effect of daylight time on worker sleep patterns, the topics covered allow readers to survey the full range of interdisciplinary research fields involved in sleep science. At the beginning of the volume are eight pages of color plates and a quick-reference table of abbreviations that are commonly used in related fields.
