Sleep's impact on both physical and mental health is remarkable. In fact, insufficient sleep has an estimated economic impact of over $411B each year in the United States alone (Sleep Foundation
, 2022). Scientists are collaborating to analyze sleep and the vital role it plays for optimal health and brain function. From establishing a connection between sleep and obesity to discovering new breakthrough treatments for insomnia, crucial insights are being uncovered.
Annual Reviews has curated this new review article collection that explores varying perspectives of the complex relationship between sleep, health, and the brain. The reviews span multiple fields of study including nutrition, neuroscience, psychology, and physiology.
In this interdisciplinary collection, our experts discuss three key areas centered around sleep:
- Health and Habit
- Neuroscience and the Nervous System
- Therapy and Medicine
Our Sleep, Health, and the Brain collection of 15 review articles from 10 Annual Reviews journals is freely available to download and share with colleagues and students through July 31, 2022, and always available through subscribing institutions.
