Sleep and Stress, a special issue of Interface Focus
Interface Focus is the Royal Society's cross-disciplinary themed publication promoting research at the interface between the physical and life sciences. This issue, organised by Catherine Charlwood, Russell G. Foster and Sally Shuttleworth, brings together a collection of papers focussed on sleep and stress. The topic is considered from both a historical and modern-day scientific perspective, with the articles spanning the sciences and humanities. The historical papers focus on literature and history from the medieval period to the early twentieth century, whereas the scientific papers look at current challenges and perspectives. By taking a multidisciplinary approach to sleep and stress research, the papers provide a broad perspective of a very topical subject.
