Summary "Sleep Onset: Normal and Abnormal Processes" examines a highly focused segment of research on sleep and physiological functioning, the crucial wake-sleep transition that marks the point, on the continuum, at which predominantly wake-related and predominantly sleep-related activities are present at the same time. The 21 chapters of this book are divided into 5 sections that cover general and theoretical concerns; predictive models, behavioral, cognitive, and subjective changes; electroencephalographic changes; and event-related potential changes.
