Sleep deprivation articles from across Nature Portfolio

Sleep deprivation is a state that arises when an organism has less sleep than is optimal, and is followed by a 'rebound' in slow-wave sleep when the opportunity arises. This can be induced experimentally or environmentally (such as shift work), but is also associated with neurological and psychiatric disorders such as dementia, in which normal sleep patterns are disrupted.
