Sleep [electronic resource]: An Overview

Video Education Australasia
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Sleep has been the subject of extensive research for many years, and while our understanding of sleep and its role in good health has advanced considerably over the past few decades, there is still much we don't know about it. Presented by psychologist Steve Taylor and other experts, this program examines sleep, covering its four stages, common sleep disorders, impacts of sleep deprivation, and several theories about why humans sleep in the first place. The video also looks at treatments offered at sleep disorder clinics. Produced in Australia.
