Sleep has been shown to be a global phenomenon in which the presence of local processes of both activation and deactivation are finely orchestrated. Dysfunctional and independent action of the systems involved in non-rapid eye movement (NREM) sleep and wakefulness is deemed to be at the basis of arousal parasomnias. We show, in a patient with confusional arousals, persistence of sleep in the hippocampal and frontal associative cortices in contrast to the presence of awakening in the motor… CONTINUE READING
