Sleep is as vital for complex life as food, water and oxygen.

There are two distinct modes of sleep, namely REM sleep and non-REM sleep.

During sleep, most of the body's systems are in an anabolic state, helping to restore the immune, nervous, skeletal and muscular systems - vital processes that maintain mood, memory and cognitive performance.

The purposes and mechanisms of sleep are the subject of substantial ongoing research.
