Cognitive-behavioral interventions for insomnia SLEEP DISORDERS AND P SYCHIATRY Intervention General description Specific techniques Stimulus control A set of behaviors that promotes associative conditioning between the sleep environment and sleepiness •Go to bed only when feeling sleepy and intending to fall asleep. • If unable to fall asleep within 10–20 minutes (without watching the clock, 10–20 minutes is equivalent to repositioning yourself twice to try to fall asleep), leave the bed and the bedroom.

The aim is to increase sleep efficiency, or the ratio of total time spent asleep to total time spent in bed. Initially, sleep restriction is often associated with slight to moderate sleep deprivation, which increases sleepiness and enhances the ability to fall asleep and to maintain sleep. Sleep restriction may lead to increased daytime sleepiness, and patients should be cautioned about operating machinery or performing duties that require high levels of alertness. Relaxation techniques aim to reduce muscular tension and cognitive arousal, which are incompatible with sleep (Jacobson 1974; Woolfolk and McNulty 1983).

This constellation of findings suggests hyperarousal during NREM sleep and frontal hypoarousal during wakefulness, which may correspond to patients’ sleep- and wake-related complaints (Figure 2–1, part B). In patients with insomnia in the context of major depression, EEG beta activity was positively associated with metabolic activity in the orbitofrontal cortex and with complaints of poor sleep quality (Nofzinger et al. 2000), further substantiating the hyperarousal hypothesis. T. Smith et al. 2002a) found hypoperfusion across eight preselected regions of interest (including frontal medial, occipital, and parietal cortex) during NREM sleep, with the most prominent effects in the basal ganglia.
