Dement of Stanford University Medical Centre said the most clear-cut and unambiguous problem of excessive sleep is a syndrome called narcolepsy, the cause of which has not been fully deter- mined. "Yet It would appear that most general practitioners are not certain exactly what it is."

"The mean interval between thn onset of symptoms and a definitive diagnosis was 15 years." In the meantime, the narco- leptics suffered from sleepy spells during the daytime and of muscular weakness precipitated by strong emotion such as anger or laugh- ter.
