About the Author:

J. Allan Hobson is the author of The Dreaming Brain and The Chemistry of Conscious States. He is professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and the director of the Laboratory of Neurophysiology at the Massachusetts Mental Health Center.

Review:

We may spend up to one-third of our lives asleep, but there's no actual rest for brain activity. This paper edition covers more changes in sleep research findings; from new therapeutic discoveries on sleep's benefits and mechanisms to biochemical discoveries. An excellent reference. -- Midwest Book Review
