    Life Sci 71:2067-70. 2002
    ..Based on previous studies, the possibility is raised that this sleep enhancement results from an alteration in function of the GABA(A)-benzodiazepine receptor complex...

    Brain Res 980:185-90. 2003
    ..Our data also imply that an intact SCN slightly inhibits NREM sleep in the rat. Changes in NREM sleep and delta EEG power during recovery in lesioned rats suggest that the SCN may influence homeostatic regulation...

    Wallace B Mendelson
    Sleep Med Rev 8:7-17. 2004
    ..All currently available agents, while effective and safe, do not achieve this ideal. The next few years are likely to see the appearance of a variety of agents with new and promising mechanisms of action...
