Short discription: 

The natureof sleep has always caused an increased interest and served as a subject for a variety of guesses and assumptions. This is not surprising, since one third of the life humans spend in a sleep. Modern research has greatly enriched our understanding of sleep.

The present modular course is devoted to the study of neurophysiological mechanisms of the sleep phases, sleep characteristics, depth, physiology, neurochemistry and neuroanatomy.

The main objective of this course to get acquainted with modern ideas about the nature of sleep. Special attention in the course will be paid to investigations of sleep disorders (sleepwalking, night terrors, narcolepsy, hypersomnia, sleep apnea, insomnia).
