Activity of Midbrain Reticular Formation and Neocortex during the Progression of Human Non-Rapid Eye Movement Sleep
To clarify the neural correlates and brain activity during the progression of human non-rapid eye movement (NREM) sleep, we examined the absolute regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) during light andExpand

Spectral analyses of electroencephalography and heart rate variability during sleep in normal subjects
We investigated the relationship between electroencephalogram (EEG) activity and autonomic nervous system function using spectral analyses of EEG and heart rate variability (HRV) in healthy subjectsExpand

Effect of benzodiazepine hypnotic triazolam on relationship of blood pressure and Paco2 to cerebral blood flow during human non-rapid eye movement sleep.
We sought to clarify the effect of short-acting benzodiazepine hypnotic on the relationship of arterial blood pressure and arterial partial pressure of carbon dioxide (Paco2) to regional cerebralExpand

Deactivation by benzodiazepine of the basal forebrain and amygdala in normal humans during sleep: a placebo-controlled [15O]H2O PET study.
OBJECTIVE The authors' goal was to identify differences in regional brain activity between physiological and benzodiazepine-induced sleep to clarify the brain structures involved in the drug'sExpand
