  • First Handbook of Experimental Pharmacology on sleep and wakefulness, in which the pharmacology of sleep is discussed very much in the context of current knowledge of sleep function, its neuroanatomical and neurochemical bases, and including circadian rhythmicity
  • Powerful state-of-the-art methodologies are covered, such as optogenetics and designer receptor manipulations
  • Sleep- and wake-promoting compounds are not discussed in isolation, but within a single volume, which helps the understanding of their interrelationships

About this book

This volume connects current ideas and concepts about sleep functions and circadian rhythms with the search for novel target-selective sleep-wake therapeutics. To do so, it provides a timely, state-of-the-art overview of sleep-wake mechanisms in health and disease, ongoing developments in drug discovery, and their prospects for the clinical treatment of sleep-disordered patients. It particularly focuses on the concept that sleep and wakefulness mutually affect each other, and the future therapeutic interventions with either sleep- or wake-promoting agents that are expected to not only improve the quality of sleep but also the waking behavior, cognition, mood and other sleep-associated physiological functions.

The chapter 'Sleep Physiology, Circadian Rhythms, Waking Performance and the Development of Sleep-Wake Therapeutics' available open access under a CC BY 4.0 license at link.springer.com
