Sleep disorder is the collective name for ailments related to sleep, such as insomnia and hypersomnia.
A neurotransmitter in the brain called orexin, which is related to narcolepsy, a form of hypersomnia, was discovered by Dr. Yanagisawa more than twenty years ago. Narcolepsy is a condition that causes sleepiness that is difficult to resist and is caused by orexin deficiency. As of now, no method of increasing the brain’s production of orexin itself has been discovered, but researchers around the world are currently working on the development of a medicine that could serve the same function as orexin.
