Summary
"Michel Jouvet, perhaps the world's leading researcher on sleep and dream research, is considered responsible for the discovery of paradoxical sleep - a "new" third state of the brain as different from normal sleep as sleep is from waking. In The Paradox of Sleep, Jouvet takes the reader on a scientific and sociological tour of the history of sleep and dream research, concluding with his own ideas on the function of dreaming."--BOOK JACKET
