Istoria di un sonnambulismo, con alcune riflessioni sopra questo fenomeno, e sul sonno; letta nella pubblica adunanza dell’Accademia Labronica.

Livorno: Tipografia e Litografia Sardi, 1829.

This report on sleepwalking concerned Palloni’s treatment of a forty-year old peasant who for nine years would sleepwalk—often going into the fields, carrying his tools along, then returning later to the bed where he slept tranquilly until the waking hour. Palloni considered theories of somnambulism, including Mesmerism, and the impact of sleepwalking on memory and attention.
