So, what, actually can disrupt our wakefulness and attention/concentration during daytime hours? There are, actually several things which can:
— Night work-shift sleep disruption. Certain professions (such as night guards) may require people to avoid sleeping in the night several times per week. This may result in inability to stay alert of general feeling of weakness and drowsiness.

— Narcolepsy. While many consider it to be a psychological problem narcolepsy in fact is a chronic condition of central nervous system (CNS). Modern science can not provide clear understanding of the origins and causes of the disease though many of them think that it is related to some genetic patterns. No matter what are the causes of narcolepsy its symptoms ruin everyday alertness of many people. For example, those who suffer from narcolepsy often drop off to sleep suddenly. The worst thing is that they can not control it. Moreover, narcolepsy brings about cataplexy which is sudden muscle relaxation which can happen any moment. While some may consider that narcolepsy is a rare disease in fact around 200 000 people in the US suffer from it.
