  00:54:00  2011  Color  Sound

Sudden sleepiness, sometimes open-eyed, concerns more than 10 % of the population. First cause of fatal road accidents, drowsiness has become a health public issue. Researchers in neurosciences, chronobiology, robotics and ergonomics work on the sleep and in particular on the awakening. They try to understand the biological and environmental mechanisms which maintain human beings at the top of their abilities.
