Spindle activity, visually scored in the 12-15 Hz range over antero-posterior midline derivations, has been assessed in ten normal subjects during a baseline and a recovery sleep after 2 nights of selective slow-wave sleep (SWS) deprivation. The recovery sleep, characterized by a significant increase of stage 4 and SWS as compared to the baseline, revealed that sleep spindles are reduced in the first NREM sleep cycle. The size of this reduction in spindle density progressively decreased in the… CONTINUE READING
