This book examines the neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and neuroclinical aspects of sleep and asserts
that all sleep problems originate in brain dysfunction, whether structural as in brain tumors, behavioral as
in insomnia, degenerative as in fatal familial insomnia, neurochemical as in narcolepsy, or neuromuscular
as in sleep apnea.

Examines the role of melatonin in sleep initiation and maintenance!

Written by a varied group of international experts who focus on the fabric of neurological mechanisms and
manifestations that underlie sleep, Sleep Disorders and Neurological Disease
investigates the refreshing properties of sleep and its influence on alertness, attention, concentration,
memory, and mood
describes sleep dysfunction resulting from common neurological disorders, including Parkinson’s disease
and multiple sclerosis
explains intrinsic sleep disorders such as narcolepsy and idiopathic CNS hypersomnia
outlines the historical development of the neurochemistry, electrophysiology, neurophysiology, and
chronobiology of sleep disorders
investigates sleep pathology and sleep disorder medications
discusses parasomnias, including sleep-wake transition and arousal disorders
covers state dissociations such as Charles Bonnet syndrome and phantom limb phenomena
suggests treatments for improving the sleep of patients with extrapyramidal disorders
and more!

"...It is...extremely welcome and timely to have Antonio Culebras’s volume on sleep disorders and
neurological disease. Not many multiauthored texts are a good read. This one is. Most of the chapters
start with either an illustrative case or the history of the topic. They then proceed to the clinical
importance and on to the pathophysiology and treatment. The chapters are so well written that the
nonneurologist will find them easy reading. Yet they contain all that neurologists and most that sleep
specialists need to know, including a synopsis of relevant, current, neuroscience, and extensive recent
literature citations."

"...a welcome addition to the library of sleep medicine books. Though it clearly targets neurologists, it will
be of interest to a wide range of professionals interested in sleep medicine."
it will be of interest to a wide range of professionals interested in sleep medicine."
