A physiologic state of relative unconsciousness and inaction of the voluntary muscles, the need for which recurs periodically. The stages of sleep have been variously defined in terms of depth (light, deep), EEG characteristics (delta waves, synchronization), physiologic characteristics (REM, NREM), and presumed anatomic level (pontine, mesencephalic, rhombencephalic, rolandic, etc.).learn more
This section is designed as a jumping-off point. We've "spotlighted" just a few medical studies on sleep health to introduce you to the nature and diversity of the research. Consider it a springboard to the RESEARCH area.
The heart of the portal. Search the Natural Standard, Cochrane and PubMed databases - and the search engine TRIP - for clinical studies about sleep health's impact on numerous health issues.
Investigate the clinical trials currently underway for sleep health. Where they're being conducted around the world - which health conditions are being studied - and how to get involved.
