Sleep is the natural state of bodily rest, common to all mammals and birds and also seen in many reptiles, amphibians and fish. This book contains articles that explore sleep's impact on neural functioning, sleep disorders, the relation between sleep and other clinical disorders, a look at sleep from a developmental perspective, and more.
