Binge drinking causes sleep disruptions: a likelihood of hangover [abstract]
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Binge drinking is highly prevalent in the society especially among college students. It is often followed by a period of “hangover” which is defined as general discomfort consisting of heterogeneous behavioral and psychological symptoms following excessive use of alcohol. Hangover is often associated with accidents, poor work performance and adverse socioeconomic consequences. Although sleepiness is a symptom of hangover, experimental evidence describing sleeping is lacking. In this study, we performed binge drinking in rats and analyzed sleep-wake behavior.
