Abstract:

In 410 alphabetically arranged, signed, original articles that represent the state of knowledge in biological, medical, and psychological aspects of sleep and dreaming, students, teachers, and general readers can learn about such topics as how and when dreaming occurs, what sleep disorders are, how aging affects sleep, what circadian rhythms have to do with sleep and wakefulness, and which brain centers modulate sleep. Entries on the sandman, pajamas, pillows, teddy bears, and nudity add a bit of whimsy. For high school, college, and public libraries.
