Sleep EEG in the rat as a function of prior waking

Electroencephalogr Clin Neurophysiol. 1986 Jul;64(1):74-6. doi: 10.1016/0013-4694(86)90044-1.


Delta activity in non-REM sleep and theta activity in REM sleep in the rat were computed for an 8 h baseline period and for the recovery period after 3, 6, 12 and 24 h sleep deprivation (SD). Delta activity showed a decreasing trend in all schedules and was enhanced as a function of prior waking. Theta activity and REM sleep were increased after 24 h SD.
