The majority of current etiological theories consider heightened levels of autonomic, cortical, cognitive, and emotional arousal to be a stable feature of people with sleep derangements.[44-46] Perlis et al.[47] postulated insomnia results from enhanced cortical hyperarousal, measured objectively, for example, as increased fast frequencies in the sleep electroencephalographic. This is experienced subjectively as cognitive hyperarousal (e.g., intrusive thoughts during the sleep-onset period, dysfunctional beliefs), which results in increased autonomic arousal.
