    thank you, i have seen that site. but it doesnt not explain the steps and process that the brain takes in order to make a person fall sleep

  • biology -

    The hypothalamus controls your sleeping/waking cycles. The hypothalamus also controls your circadian rhythms. The steps to take in order to fall alseep are still very much being researched but, to make things simple, it is very much like shutting off a computer. There is a systematic shut down of various parts until you fall alseep!
