Common Name(s)

Short sleeper

In a review of various classification schemes for sleep disorders, {2:Thorpy (1990)} listed 'short sleeper' under the broad category of 'disorders of initiating and maintaining sleep' (DIMS); however, the short sleeper phenotype or trait is not considered a sleep disorder. Individuals with this trait require less sleep in any 24-hour period than is typical for their age group. See also familial advanced sleep-phase syndrome (FASPS; {604348}), which is a distinct disorder characterized by very early sleep onset and offset.
