Surprisingly, the concept of sleep, its necessity and function, the mechanisms of action, and its elicitors are far from being completely understood. A key to sleep function is to determine how and when sleep is induced. The aim of this review is to merge the classical concepts of central sleep regulation by the brainstem and hypothalamus with the recent findings on decentral sleep regulation in local neuronal assemblies and sleep regulatory substances that create a scenario in which sleep is… Expand
