the part of the brain that controls sleep. Within a few minutes of taking the drink the person falls into a deep sleep,often quite suddenly, even mid-sentence when talking to family and friends!
As the level of drug in the bloodstream rises, more moves into the brain and sleep becomes deeper and deeper. At this point, another area of the brain is effected; that which controls the rate of breathing. The person’s breathing slows, and eventually stops altogether. With no oxygen entering the lungs, the person dies of ‘respiratory arrest’, where there is not enough oxygen in the circulating blood to maintain brain function. Lastly, the heart stops beating. Rarely is there any bladder or bowel motion.
