The general progression in early childhood is towards diVerentiation and organization of conventionally deWned sleep states, shorter total time spent asleep, less SWS and longer sleep cycles. Details of normal sleep from the neonatal period to adolescence can be found in Kahn et al. (1996). The main diVerences between adults and children in the architecture of overnight sleep are listed in Table 2. , 1971). Three basic sleep states are described in full-term infants: active sleep (comparable to adult REM sleep); quiet sleep (an immature form of NREM sleep); and indeterminate or transitional sleep (a mixture of the other two).

Wolfson & Carskadon (1998) have pointed out the consistency with which their own and other studies have demonstrated that sleep loss in adolescents is associated with daytime sleepiness and impaired performance at school. , 2000). The sleep loss, which tends to increase across the teenage years, results from late bedtimes and sometimes early starting times at school. Other reports have linked earlier bedtimes and more sleep with better academic attainment (see Wolfson & Carskadon, 1998). Of the various clinical conditions mentioned earlier, upper-airway obstruction (usually by enlarged tonsils and adenoids) has been associated with children’s poor academic performance and other psychological deWcits, with improvement following adenotonsillectomy (Gozal, 1998).

Sleep is physiologically distinct from other states of relative inactivity such as coma, stupor or hibernation. Within sleep two physiologically distinct states have been deWned: Non-Rapid Eye Movement (NREM) sleep and REM sleep. Both these forms of sleep are active processes. Wakefulness is maintained by cortical noradrenaline, dopamine and acetylcholine release from terminals of brainstem neurones. Activity in the ascending reticular activating system must diminish for sleep to occur. In addition, however, NREM sleep depends on activity in the basal forebrain systems especially, while mechanisms in the pons are primarily responsible for the control of REM sleep.
