Neurodevelopmental Disorders Across the Lifespan

This chapter discusses the development of sleep-related learning in Williams syndrome and other neurodevelopmental disorders. Quality and quantity of sleep are an essential part of health, cognition, and well-being; yet, sleep disorders are disturbingly prevalent in neurodevelopmental disorders. Sleep involves finely tuned multidimensional processes of biochemistry, genetics, and psychological processes in response to external environmental cues. Thus, it is important to appreciate the complexity of the sleep state, which involves multiple levels of regulation and directly impacts on one's life. It is now time to move away from the static viewpoint of the sleep state and acknowledge the view of dynamic processes occurring during sleep and identify the impact of sleep on cognitive processing.

Keywords:   Williams syndrome, neurodevelopmental disorders, sleep state, cognitive processing
