About the Authors
  • Adolescents are among the most sleep deprived populations in our society. This book explores the genesis and development of sleep patterns at this phase of the life span. It examines biological and cultural factors that influence sleep patterns, presents risks associated with lack of sleep, and reveals the effects of environmental factors such as work and school schedules on sleep. This study will appeal to psychologists and sociologists of adolescence who have not yet considered the important role of sleep in the lives of our youth.

    • Presents original research on a neglected problem
    • Tackles a unique topic in the adolescent behavior literature
    • Author is director of sleep research lab at Brown University

    Reviews & endorsements

    "During much of 1990 and 1991, Dr. Carskadon and I served on the National Commission on Sleep Disorder Research, which carried out a Congressionally-mandated study of the role of sleep deprivation and sleep disorders in American society. One of the the areas we examined was whether the facts about sleeping that we have known for more than two decades have actually been integrated into the educational system and the health care system. It was clear that crucial education about sleep need and biological rhythms, and sleep disorders likely to occur in adolescence, was completely absent.... There is an urgent need for researchers and clinicians in the area covered by this volume to cooperate, to arrive at a consensus, and to provide leadership.... Dr. Carskadon is certainly the outstanding leader in this area and she has assembled... leading researchers to produce a very important and long overdue book." from the Foreword by Dr. William C. Dement, Stanford University
