25 insomniacs and 10 good sleepers (undergraduates) slept in a laboratory for 2 consecutive nights and for an intervening daytime nap session. Ss were awakened at the end of the 10th consecutive epoch of initial Stage 2 sleep and were asked to report on their experiences of sleep or wakefulness. EEG data were also collected. Insomniacs reported less sleep experience than did good sleepers in both the night and nap sessions. (5 ref) (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved).
