Considers the guinea‐pig to be a classical representative of “poor sleepers”. Introduces the sleep‐wakefulness cycle (SWC) and explains why the animal could become a multi‐component biosensor. Describes experiments and analyses the results of using popular drugs with the animal. Outlines the methods used and the results obtained; discusses them and provides an evaluation of the present series of experiments. Indicates how standard biosensors allow the measurement, imitation and modelling of complicated bioprocesses.
