Narcolepsy and Night Hags - Oliver Sacks

This quote was added by keyedup
It is now known that the hypothalamus secretes "wakefulness" hormones, orexins, and that these are deficient in people who have congenital narcolepsy. Damage to the hypothalamus, from a head injury or a tumor or disease, can also cause narcolepsy later in life.
