Human sleep/wake cycle (Rempe et al. 2010)

This model simulates sleep in the human brain and is consistent with both the flip/flop concept and the two-process model of sleep regulation. The model also gives a possible mechanism for the changes in sleep timing seen in narcolepsy.

Model Type: Realistic Network

Transmitters: Gaba

Model Concept(s): Sleep
