German Sleep Society (DGSM)

The German Sleep Society (DGSM) is devoted to sleep research and sleep medicine. The objectives are research on sleep and sleep disorders as well as development of clinical diagnosis and therapy of sleep-wake disorders.

The causes of sleep-wake disorders may be of psychic or organic nature. We can distinguish dyssomnias, parasomnias and sleep disorders associated with organic and psychiatric disorders.

The German Sleep Society is an interdisciplinary society with members being physicians specialized in pneumology, internal medicine, neurology, psychiatry, ENT-medicine, pediatrics as well as scientists of physiology, pschology, biology and other natural sciences.
