Sleep Deprivation

Jean-Louis Valatx, M.D.
National Institute of Health and Medical Research Lyons, France

Various methods of sleep deprivation are used to control people. Here the author reviews the known sleep cycles, then describes the process of sleep deprivation and the common effects on the subject. Risk areas such as families living in poor conditions, varied work schedules that interfere with normal sleep, cultic groups, and imprisonment and criminal interrogations are described. When imposed willfully on a subject, sleep deprivation is seen as a violation of basic human rights.
