VARIOUS - MELATONIN

$10.00

DURING SLEEP, A PROCESS CONTROLLED IN PART BY THE BODY'S USE OF THE CHEMICAL MELATONIN, OUR BRAIN FUNCTIONS IN A MARKEDLY DIFFERENT FASHION TO OUR WAKING LIFE.

AS AN EXAMPLE, READING IS NOTED BY MANY SLEEP RESEARCHERS TO BE A QUITE UNUSUAL PROCESS, WHEREBY WORDS SIMPLY FALL OFF THE PAGE, THEIR GRAPHICAL MEANING ABSTRACTED AS VARIOUS SECTIONS OF THE BRAIN RECLINE INTO STATES OF REST.

SOMETHING SIMILAR IS TRUE FOR SOUNDS WE HEAR GENERATED WITHIN DREAMS. THE WAY IN WHICH INCIDENTAL ATMOSPHERES COMPLEMENT, INTERRUPT OR INTERFERE WITH OUR SLEEP SUGGESTS A NEW SET OF UNDERSTANDINGS. IT IS THESE CONCEPTS THAT ARE EXPLORED HERE IN A DEEPLY PERSONAL AND REFLECTIVE MANNER. LAWRENCE ENGLISH JAN 2004
