Traditionally the analysis of sleep has used two distinct manual EEG analysis methods: one for general structure, the other for short time-scale events. Both methods suffer from high levels of inter-expert variability. In this paper we present a system which uses a neural network classifier to analyse each second of sleep. Postprocessing techniques are described which result in outputs which mimic both of the traditional manual analysis methods. This combination of methods results in a…

Comparison of manual sleep staging with automated neural network-based analysis in clinical practice
It is concluded that such an ANN-based analysis system is not sufficiently accurate for sleep study analyses using the R&K classification system.
Automated sleep quality measurement using EEG signal: first step towards a domain specific music recommendation system
An EEG-based approach is proposed to measure user's sleep quality, which achieves high accuracy and shows promising potential for the music recommendation system.
Automated sleep stage detection and classification of sleep disorders
In order to improve the diagnostic and clinical treatment of sleep disorders, the first important step is to identify and treat sleep-related disorders.
Computer based sleep staging: Challenges for the future
A review article presents an overview of the existing automatic sleep staging methods, discusses the different challenges and proposes future prospects for new research opportunities.
Automation of Sleep Staging
This thesis improved some aspects of sleep staging automation, but due to the limitations on resources, the full potential of these improvements could not be demonstrated.
Advances in Automatic Sleep Analysis
A comparative analysis of these proposed classification techniques has been presented and the findings discussed and future strategies to improve the performance of sleep analysis algorithms and novel signal processing tools suitable for sleep analysis are proposed.
Non-Contact Sleep Monitoring
Through long-term deployment, it is envisaged that the UMBS-derived features may be used to provide unobtrusive, continuous insights into over- all health status, the progression of the symptoms of chronic conditions, and allow the objective measurement of daily sleep/wake patterns and routines.


A new approach to the analysis of the human sleep/wakefulness continuum
A new, quantitative method of sleep analysis that utilizes the pattern recognition capabilities of an artificial neural network that provides a second‐by‐second qualification of the sleep/wakefulness continuum with a resolution that far exceeds that of rule‐based sleep staging.
Interobserver variability in recognizing arousal in respiratory sleep disorders.
The ASDA definition of arousal is only moderately repeatable, and interobserver agreement for arousal scoring is quantified and identified factors affecting it.

Limitations of Rechtschaffen and Kales.
The guidelines of Rechtschaffen and Kales were meant as a reference method but became, unintentionally, a gold standard, which has evidently had a serious impact on the way of thinking and the development of the field in general.
Fatigue, alcohol, and serious road crashes in France: factorial study of national data
The role of fatigue in serious road crashes using the French national database, obtained from the French Ministry of Transport on all road crashes in which at least one person was severely injured, severely injured or died, is investigated.

Techniques of recording, scoring, and doubtful records are carefully considered, and Recommendations for abbreviations, types of pictorial representation, order of polygraphic tracings are suggested.
