Current Perspectives on the Function of Sleep
- A. Rechtschaffen
- Perspectives in biology and medicine
Sleep researchers are often confronted with such reasonable questions as the following: How much sleep do we need? What is the most efficient sleep schedule? Does anything substitute for sleep? What… Expand

Physiological correlates of prolonged sleep deprivation in rats.
The issue of whether sleep is physiologically necessary has been unresolved because experiments that reported deleterious effects of sleep deprivation did not control for the stimuli used to prevent… Expand
Sleep deprivation in the rat by the disk-over-water method
Chronic sleep deprivation may be required to reveal the most serious physiological consequences of sleep loss, but it usually requires strong stimulation which can obscure the interpretation of… Expand
Mammalian sleep, longevity, and energy metabolism.
Recovery sleep following sleep deprivation in intact and suprachiasmatic nuclei-lesioned rats.
Recovery sleep was studied for 3-5 days following 24 h of sleep deprivation (TSD) in normal rats and in rats lacking circadian rhythms (CRs) of sleep because of prior lesioning of the suprachiasmatic… Expand

The results of a series of studies on total and selective sleep deprivation in the rat are integrated and discussed. These studies showed that total sleep deprivation, paradoxical sleep deprivation,… Expand
Effects of method, duration, and sleep stage on rebounds from sleep deprivation in the rat.
Total sleep deprivation (TSD) of rats for 24 hours or less by continually enforced locomotion has consistently produced subsequent rebounds of slow-wave or high-amplitude EEG activity in NREM sleep,… Expand
