Abstract: Sleepiness and changes in body temperature are temporally associated. (2) There is mounting evidence that insomnia may be caused by impaired heat loss capacity. (3) New techniques such as infrared thermal imaging may be useful tools to investigate thermoregulatory changes associated with sleep in humans. © 2004 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
