Pathways to Sleep I: An Introduction

Pathways to Sleep I: An Introduction


Hopefully, this is enough information about sleep for us to get started on identification of pathways to sleep. As you have already seen, there is a wonderful book about sleep that provides detailed, up-to-date information about sleep. This book is Matthew Walker’s Why We Sleep. I would also recommend the Teaching Company lecture course called Secrets of Sleep Science presented by H. Craig Heller (I have made use of this lecture series, as well as the Walker book, in preparing this brief introduction). We are now ready, in the next essay, to move further in setting the stage by turning specifically to the challenge of “managing” sleep.
