Basics of Sleep Behavior

Written by: Sleep Research Society

This reference calls itself Sleep Syllabus but in reality it is more like a textbook which was designed for “undergraduates, graduate students, medical students and post-doctoral scholars.” The name used on the website is Basics of Sleep Behavior. It was written in 1997 and shared by WebSciences International and Sleep Research Society (United States).

This sleep behavior textbook considers sleep, its functions and seeks to describe the processes which occur in the brain during sleep.

A suggestion… the material is presented in a brown text on a beige background with a repeating image of the brain. It is hard to read. Viewers might want to highlight the entire page (CTRL-A or CMD-A) as that changes the color and makes it easier to see.
