Abstract
In 1976, Graybiel and Knepton proposed the term “ sopite syndrome ” to describe a symptom complex centering on drowsiness and lethargy related to motion sickness. However, existing descriptions and defi nitions of sopite syndrome have limitations in fully conveying the appropriate information to the reader. Our objective is to propose a revised defi nition providing a more adequate conceptual framework for research. The proposed defi nition of sopite syndrome addresses the nonspecifi city of soporifi c symptoms, the health state of the individuals, and the existence of a motion stimulus.
