The "Advances in Consciousness Research" provides a forum for scholars from different scientific disciplines and fields of knowledge who study consciousness in its multifacted aspects. This volume deals with aspects of sleep and wakefulness across human development.

Clinical contexts offer an opportunity to show both quantitative and qualitative changes of awakening and arousals in different pathological conditions. Either partial changes of one physiological variable or global and massive changes can be observed. (Series B)
