The Sleep Well Heading

A well full of information on sleep, sleep disorders, sleep activism, sleep-related events and much more!

Updated May 29, 2010

For the updated and maintained student-created version of this site, please visit

Welcome to the Sleep Well, the personal site of Dr. William C. Dement, M.D., Ph.D., the world's leading authority on sleep, sleep disorders, and the dangers of sleep deprivation. He is the director and founder of the Stanford University Sleep Disorders Clinic and Research Center, the world's first sleep disorders center.

This site contains a large number of Dr. Dement's writings from the late 1990s, but is no longer regularly updated.

Instead, the students of Dr. Dement's renowned Stanford Sleep and Dreams course have launched a new site aimed at improving sleep health through an entertaining and interactive sleep education. To visit that site and begin or continue your education, please use the link at the top of this page. Or browse the archived Sleep Well site below, or check out some of Dr. Dement's books using the Amazon links to the right.
