This unit of study will develop an advanced understanding of sleep neurophysiology, building on topics introduced in the first four units of the course. Topics will cover neural and motor pathways and the neurotransmitter systems that influence, and are influenced by, sleep and wake. This unit will include more advanced topics in chronobiology and circadian rhythm, and the many functions that are tightly linked to sleep.
