Sleep, its Regulation, and Barriers to Good Sleep

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference paperChapter


In this chapter, we introduce some basic facts about sleep and how it is regulated in healthy adults. This background knowledge is important, because a comprehensive understanding of the features of a healthy night of sleep, and how it is achieved, is needed to deliver the CBT-I intervention. It is also important that the clinician administering the CBT-I intervention does not hold common faulty beliefs about sleep, which are often perpetuated in the media (for example, that everyone needs 8 hours sleep).
