The evaluation of EEG-patterns is usually accomplished by visual analysis. Nowadays however, even personal computers are fast enough for an efficient pattern recognition of EEG signals. Using sleep spindles and K-complexes as examples, our aim was to demonstrate how patterns can be detected in an EEG signal with a high degree of accuracy. Furthermore,(More)
The amount of sleep spindles and K-complexes shows a great interindividual variety of combinations, such as many or few sleep spindles and K-complexes respectively. There seems to be no direct correlation between the amount of sleep spindles and K-complexes intraindividually. In our unselected population - age range between 18 and 77 years - the mean sleep(More)
All night sleep deprivation prior to an EEG registration causes some inconvenience not only to the organization of the EEG department but presents a burden on the patients as well as their family members, and for these reasons is not suitable to be frequently employed as a routine procedure. As an alternative, we performed short-term sleep recordings in the(More)

When evaluating responses in the EEG to intermittent photic stimulation usually the emphasis is placed on the differentiation of photoparoxysmal and photomyogenic responses as well as asymmetric driving effects such as locally increased activation of slow frequencies or locally reduced activation of the basic rhythm indicating a focal disturbance. Apart(More)
"Equipotential" doses of lormetazepam, triazolam and flunitrazepam were tested regarding their influence on K-complexes, sleep spindles and rapid eye movements. The receptor affinity was used to determine the equipotency. In this respect triazolam, lormetazepam and flunitrazepam show a relationship of 1:2:4. Lormetazepam, however, showed only slight changes(More)
Somnopolygraphic recordings were registered from 29 patients with AIDS, their age ranged from 20 to 55 years (mean: 40.9; median: 44). The patients represent the full range of cerebral disintegration representing the picture of a progressing destruction of physiological sleep organization. Some disturbances begin quite early and progress successively, such(More)
To investigate the temporal organization of EEG sleep activity in the second and minute ranges we developed a method which, based on Fourier transformation, allows the presentation of periodic oscillations of spectral power and coherence. The application of this method is demonstrated in 3 subjects with different types of alpha activity during sleep: (a)(More)
Fifteen patients aged between 26 and 55 years with the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and various cerebral manifestations of the disease underwent an all-night sleep electroencephalogram (EEG) registration. The recordings of 15 age-matched volunteers were examined as controls. Sleep stages were determined visually and the following spectral(More)
