The mechanisms by which short sleep duration affects food intake and food choice to contribute to weight gain have been explored using experimental manipulations of sleep. These experimental models have revealed that sleep duration affects not only subjective hunger and appetite but also actual food intake.   Basic Sleep Mechanisms is a collection of studies about the different mechanisms that facilitate the process of sleep. The studies, despite being made by experts of different subspecialties, are more purposed for general interest. The book is divided into four Edition: 1.

Series Title: Progress in brain research, v.   SLEEP SERIES SLEEP MECHANISMS By: Samantha deCastro We have two things within us that help direct our sleep. First is circadian rhythms, second is sleep-wake homeostasis Circadian rhythms isn’t just about sleep, it directs many different functions of the body. The rhythm itself is controlled by your biological clock, which is based on a 24 [ ]. Unfortunately, this book can't be printed from the OpenBook.

  Several genetic models–including the worm, fruit fly, and zebrafish–are helping scientists to identify molecular mechanisms and genetic variants involved in normal sleep and sleep disorders. Additional research will provide better understand of inherited sleep patterns and risks of circadian and sleep disorders. The first part of this book does not really address "why we sleep". Instead, the book describes "what happens if we do not get enough sleep." Not until about halfway through the book, does the question "why we sleep" really get answered. The author, Matthew Walker, is a professor of neuroscience and psychology/5(K). The book, additionally, offers researchers a guide to methods and research design for studying sleep and affect. This book will be of use to sleep researchers, affective neuroscientists, and clinical psychologists in order to better understand the impact of emotion on sleep as well as the effect of sleep on physical and mental well-being. The neuroscience of sleep is the study of the neuroscientific and physiological basis of the nature of sleep and its functions. Traditionally, sleep has been studied as part of psychology and medicine. The study of sleep from a neuroscience perspective grew to prominence with advances in technology and proliferation of neuroscience research from the second half of the twentieth .
