During slow-wave sleep, rat brain glycogen increases within a few minutes to about 70% above waking levels. Upon awakening, the increment is lost within 2-5 min. After repeated episodes of sleep, brain glycogen levels are comparable to those observed after only a single episode of sleep. Liver glycogen is unaffected by slow-wave sleep.
