Symons, Frank J.; Davis, Michelle L.; Thompson, Travis
Research in Developmental Disabilities, v21 n2 p115-23 Mar-Apr 2000
Sleep patterns of 30 individuals with self-injurious behavior and mental retardation were compared to 30 matched controls residing in the same residential facility who did not self-injure. Individuals with self-injury slept significantly less than individuals without self-injury. Neurochemical dysregulation in sleep disturbances among individuals with daytime self-injury is discussed.
