    Insomnia, also known as sleeplessness, is a sleep disorder where people have trouble sleeping.
  • Kleine–Levin syndrome
    Kleine–Levin syndrome (KLS), also known as Sleeping Beauty syndrome, is a rare sleep disorder characterized by persistent episodic hypersomnia and cognitive or mood changes.
  • Obstructive sleep apnea
    Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is the most common type of sleep apnea and is caused by complete or partial obstructions of the upper airway.
  • Lateral hypothalamus
    The lateral hypothalamus, also called the lateral hypothalamic area, contains the primary orexinergic nucleus within the hypothalamus that widely projects throughout the nervous system; this system of neurons mediates an array of cognitive and physical processes, such as promoting feeding behavior and arousal, reducing pain perception, and regulating body temperature, digestive functions, and blood pressure, among many others.
  • Autosomal dominant nocturnal frontal lobe epilepsy
    Autosomal dominant nocturnal frontal lobe epilepsy (ADNFLE) is an epileptic disorder that causes frequent violent seizures during sleep.
  • Delayed sleep phase disorder
    Delayed sleep-phase disorder (DSPD), also known as delayed sleep-phase syndrome or delayed sleep-phase type, and in the 2014 revision of the International Classification of Sleep Disorders (ISCD-3), delayed sleep-wake phase disorder, is a chronic dysregulation of a person's circadian rhythm (biological clock), compared to the general population and relative to societal norms.
  • Hypnopompic
    A hypnopompic state (or hypnopomp) is the state of consciousness leading out of sleep, a term coined by the psychical researcher Frederic Myers.
  • Circadian rhythm sleep disorder
    Circadian rhythm sleep disorders (CRSD), a family of sleep disorders, affect (among other bodily processes) the timing of sleep.
  • Sleep state misperception
    Sleep state misperception (SSM) is a term in the International Classification of Sleep Disorders (ICSD) most commonly used for people who mistakenly perceive their sleep as wakefulness, though it has been proposed that it be applied to those who severely overestimate their sleep time as well ("positive" sleep state misperception).
  • A Journal of Insomnia
    A Journal of Insomnia (French: Journal d'une insomnie collective) is a 2013 web documentary about insomnia, produced by Hugues Sweeney and created by Bruno Choiniere, Philippe Lambert, Thibaut Duverneix and Guillaume Braun for the National Film Board of Canada (NFB).
  • Nightmare disorder
    Nightmare disorder, also known as 'dream anxiety disorder', is a sleep disorder characterized by frequent nightmares.
  • Periodic limb movement disorder
    Periodic limb movement disorder (PLMD), previously known as nocturnal myoclonus, is a sleep disorder where the patient moves limbs involuntarily during sleep, and has symptoms or problems related to the movement.
  • International Classification of Sleep Disorders
    The International Classification of Sleep Disorders (ICSD) is "a primary diagnostic, epidemiological and coding resource for clinicians and researchers in the field of sleep and sleep medicine".
  • Parasomnia
    Parasomnias are a category of sleep disorders that involve abnormal movements, behaviors, emotions, perceptions, and dreams that occur while falling asleep, sleeping, between sleep stages, or during arousal from sleep.
  • Somniloquy
    Somniloquy or sleep-talking is a parasomnia that refers to talking aloud while asleep.
  • Hypnagogia
    Hypnagogia is the experience of the transitional state from wakefulness to sleep: the hypnagogic state of consciousness, during the onset of sleep.
  • Sleep disorder
    A sleep disorder, or somnipathy, is a medical disorder of the sleep patterns of a person or animal.
  • Non-24-hour sleep–wake disorder
    Non-24-hour sleep–wake disorder (non-24), is one of several chronic circadian rhythm sleep disorders (CRSDs).
  • Shift work sleep disorder
    Shift work sleep disorder (SWSD) is a circadian rhythm sleep disorder characterized by insomnia and excessive sleepiness affecting people whose work hours overlap with the typical sleep period.
  • Idiopathic hypersomnia
    Idiopathic hypersomnia is a condition, thought to be a neurological disorder, which is characterized primarily by excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS).
  • Nocturnal sleep-related eating disorder
    Nocturnal sleep-related eating disorder (NSRED), also known as sleep-related eating disorder (SRED), sleep eating, or somnambulistic eating, is a combination of a parasomnia and an eating disorder.
  • Rapid eye movement sleep behavior disorder
    Rapid eye movement sleep behavior disorder (RBD) is a sleep disorder (more specifically a parasomnia) that involves abnormal behavior during the sleep phase with rapid eye movement (REM) sleep.
  • Sleep hollow
    Sleepy hollow is a medical disease apparently only in humans causing them to sleep for days or weeks at a time.
  • Central hypoventilation syndrome
    Central hypoventilation syndrome (CHS) is a respiratory disorder that results in respiratory arrest during sleep.
  • Advanced sleep phase disorder
    Advanced sleep phase disorder (ASPD), also known as the advanced sleep-phase type (ASPT) of circadian rhythm sleep disorder or advanced sleep phase syndrome (ASPS), is a condition in which patients feel very sleepy and go to bed early in the evening (e.g. 6:00–8:00 p.m.) and wake up very early in the morning (e.g. around 3:00 a.m.).
