The article presents a study on sleep in depressed and hypomanic or manic patients. The study evaluated 52 manic-depressive patients, of which 31 were depressed and 21 were hypomanic or manic, with history of affective episodes. A night staff observes and rates the sleeping behavior of these patients every half hour from 10:00 p.m. to 6:30 a.m. Results of the study indicate that the patient's estimate of sleep quality and effect differs in depression and mania. The depressed patient believes his sleep to be poorer than the staff's approximation. while the manic patient perceives his sleep as much better than the staff does.
