EEG Slow (~1 Hz) Waves are Associated with Nonstationarity of Thalamo-Cortical Sensory Processing in the Sleeping Human by Massimini M, Rosanova M, Mariotti M

EEG Slow (~1 Hz) Waves Are Associated With Nonstationarity of Thalamo-Cortical Sensory Processing in the Sleeping Human. J. Neurophysiol. 89: 1205-1213, 2003. Intracellular studies reveal that, during slow wave sleep (SWS), the entire cortical network can swing rhythmically between extremely different microstates, ranging from wakefulness-like network activation to functional disconnection in the space of a few hundred milliseconds.

Sleep Cyclic Alternating Pattern in Normal School-Age Children (abs.) by Bruni O, Ferri R, Miano S, Verrillo E, Vittori E, Della Marca G, Farina B, Mennuni G

CAP parameters were quantified in 10 normal healthy subjects (6 males and 4 females, mean age 8.3 years; range 6–10 years). All subjects underwent polysomnography recordings for two consecutive nights in a standard laboratory setting. Sleep data were stored on computer using a 16-channel polysomnography digital system. Sleep macrostructure was visually scored according to the criteria by Rechtschaffen and Kales (Brain Information Service/Brain Research Institute, University of California, Los Angeles, 1968); CAP was visually scored following the criteria by Terzano et al. (Sleep Med 2 (2001) 537).

DC-EEG Discloses Prominent, Very Slow Activity Patterns During Sleep in Preterm Infants (abs.) by Vanhatalo S, Tallgren P, Andersson S, Sainio K, Voipio J, Kaila K

The objective of this study is to test the hypothesis that the immature human brain exhibits slow electrical activity that is not detected by conventional (i.e. high-pass filtered) electroencephalography (EEG).
