Interhemispheric asynchrony of the sleep EEG in northern fur seals

Experientia. 1985 Aug 15;41(8):1034-5. doi: 10.1007/BF01952128.


In northern fur seals the two brain hemispheres can generate the EEG slow waves during sleep not only simultaneously, as in all the terrestrial mammals investigated, but also independently as in dolphins.
