第一本由權威科學家撰寫的睡眠專著
柏克萊加州大學睡眠專家Matthew Walker揭露所有關於睡眠的突破性研究成果,運用睡眠的力量,改變自我生活


睡眠是我們人生中最重要卻又最不被重視及了解的事,直到最近,科學家仍無法破解為何人類需要睡眠,睡眠的好處,以及若失去睡眠會對人類的健康造成巨大的傷害。相較於人類其他基本驅動力,例如飲食和生育,睡眠的重要性至今仍是個難解的謎。

傑出的神經學家及睡眠專家Matthew Walker將解開睡眠的神秘面紗。大腦透過充足的睡眠能增進許多能力,例如學習、記憶和做出合理的決策,睡眠甚至能重新校準我們的情緒、改善免疫系統、調節新陳代謝和調節胃口。而作夢能幫助我們化解痛苦的記憶,為過去和現在的知識創造虛擬空間,因而激發更多創造力。

Walker在書中解答了許多關於睡眠的問題:咖啡因和酒精如何影響睡眠?快速眼動睡眠期,身體究竟有什麼變化?為何睡眠模式會改變?常見的輔助睡眠產品是否真能改善睡眠品質,長期使用是否會造成傷害?以圖解解析最先進的科學發現,結合數十年的研究成果及臨床經驗,透過睡眠改善學習力;調節賀爾蒙;預防癌症、阿茲海默症及糖尿病等,重啟你對睡眠的認知與重視。

Sleep is one of the most important aspects of our life, health and longevity and yet it is increasingly neglected in twenty-first-century society, with devastating consequences: every major disease in the developed world - Alzheimer's, cancer, obesity, diabetes - has very strong causal links to deficient sleep.

Until very recently, science had no answer to the question of why we sleep, or what good it served, or why its absence is so damaging to our health. Compared to the other basic drives in life - eating, drinking, and reproducing - the purpose of sleep remained elusive.

Now, in this book, the first of its kind written by a scientific expert, Professor Matthew Walker explores twenty years of cutting-edge research to solve the mystery of why sleep matters. Looking at creatures from across the animal kingdom as well as major human studies, Why We Sleep delves in to everything from what really happens during REM sleep to how caffeine and alcohol affect sleep and why our sleep patterns change across a lifetime, transforming our appreciation of the extraordinary phenomenon that safeguards our existence.
