Although sleep is an important part of every person's life, depression only affects a small portion of the population. Each subject is a source of fascination to both scientists and laypersons alike. Effort to understand these subjects, both separately and together, can add to the expanding knowledge base, leading to further research, which can, in turn, help people who suffer from these issues. The motivation of this thesis is to review current literature on both sleep and depression separately, followed by a review of literature covering both topics, and then a small study about sleeping habits and depression.
