Abstract

Sleep disorders of various causes are common following traumatic brain injury (TBI). Disturbed sleep may profoundly affect brain injury survivors' arousal, cognition, behavior, and function. Research studies are needed regarding the use of pharmacologic agents for treating disordered sleep associated with TBI. The information in this article incorporates current knowledge about the pharmacology of normal and disordered sleep with that postulated about neuropharmacology in TBI.
