hypnogenic
Explanation:
is the usual translation...

"Jouvet et al noted that 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT),
a serotonin precursor, is released at axonal nerve endings in the basal
hypothalamus as a neurotransmitter during waking. Thus, it may act as a
neurohormone and induce hypnogenic factors that are secondarily responsible
for slow wave and REM sleep. "



"Most hypnogenic agents are either growth factors or influence growth factor production (118). The growth factors are humoral agents that interact with neural circuits to regulate sleep. This association between growth factors and sleep is believed to be involved with synaptic plasticity, a functional reorganization of neuronal connections that is considered an important function of sleep."
