Investigating sleep homeostasis with extracellular recording of multiunit activity from the neocortex in freely behaving rats

Abstract:

Cortical activity during sleep and waking is traditionally investigated with electroencephalography (EEG). The most distinctive feature of neocortical activity during sleep is the occurrence of EEG slow waves, arising from quasi-synchronous periods of activity and silence among cortical neurons. The EEG slow waves are regulated homeostatically: they are larger and have a higher incidence following long waking periods and decrease as a function of time spent asleep. Since intense early sleep s...
