  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

Sleep has multidimentional functions. It modulates metabolic processes at the molecular level, synaptic neurotransmission at the subcellular level, detoxification, restitution and proliferation at the cellular level, thermoregulation and neuroimmunoendocrine information processing at the physiological level, antistress reactions and emotional fluctuations at the psychological level, immune and host defense responses at the pathological level, growth and time-keeping at the whole body level, pregnancy and lactation at the reproductive level, and strategy for survival at the evolutionary level.
