  • Circadian Rhythm: biological clock that regulates the daily patterning of sleep. It can be influenced by endogenous factor and exogenous factor i.e.. Light and dark, and travel (jet lag)
  • Narcolepsy -> restrictions in life -> suicidal attempts Sleep deprivation -> less alert,
  • Allows one to conceptualize how acute insomnia develops into a chronic condition and what factors should be targeted for treatment.
