What is narcolepsy?

Narcolepsy is a neurological disorder where the brain lacks proper control of sleep and wakefulness functions. The brain’s inability to control when to sleep and when to stay awake, leads to daytime sleepiness and uncontrollable episodes of falling asleep during the day. These episodes of sleep are sudden and can occur randomly throughout the day.
