A series of such symptom-provoking situations plus the ensuing reactions are recreated in the interviews with each of the patients.

Barker views narcolepsy as 'a pattern of discontinuous organism … environment integration in which interruptions occur whenever intolerable distress arises in the course of the existing integration or whenever chronic distress and immediate decrease of biologic tensions reduce the degree of integration below the waking level'.
