Computational models are a useful way to step between the two levels of description reported in the preceding articles: the distribution and synchrony of the oscillatory activity occurring during non-REM sleep in vivo and the behaviour of the underlying ionic conductances in vitro (see Steriade, McCormick, this volume). Experimentally determined parameters, such as how THE REGULATION OF SLEEP
