Excessive daytime somnolence in young men: prevalence and contributing factors.
TLDR
Different possible factors of daytime sleep episodes were investigated, including hours of nocturnal sleep, sleep-wake schedule, sleep difficulties, use of hypnotics, snoring, and occurrence of cataplexy; a strong association was found between these factors and excessive daytime somnolence. Expand

Clinical aspects and pathophysiology of narcolepsy
TLDR
Findings suggest that different hypocretinergic mechanisms are involved in sporadic and genetic forms of canine narcolepsy, and other lines of research deserve to be pursued simultaneously, in view of comprehensive advancements in the understanding of nar colepsy. Expand
Idiopathic hypersomnia.
TLDR
Treatment of idiopathic hypersomnia relies on stimulants, which are frequently less effective and less well tolerated than in narcolepsy and must be excluded before the diagnosis can be considered conclusive. Expand
Age at onset of narcolepsy in two large populations of patients in France and Quebec

Age at onset clearly differentiates patients with a positive family history of narcolepsy (early onset) from those without a family history, and data suggest that age at onset is genetically determined. Expand
