  • Publisher Summary This chapter describes the biochemical pharmacology of sleep. Various theoretical models have been proposed to account for the regulation of sleep and wakefulness. One model that takes into account both circadian and homeostatic considerations is the two-process model developed by Borbely and associates. The first, process S, is a homeostatic process—the longer the organism is awake, the greater will be its propensity to sleep and to have more intense sleep. The second… CONTINUE READING
