SUMMARY  The hypothesis that local activation of brain regions during wakefulness affects the EEG recorded from these regions during sleep was tested by applying vibratory stimuli to one hand prior to sleep. Eight subjects slept in the laboratory for five consecutive nights. During a 6‐h period prior to night 3, either the left or the right hand was vibrated intermittently (20 min on‐8 min off), while prior to night 5 the same treatment was applied to the contralateral hand. The sleep EEG was… 
Fast track:Unilateral vibrissae stimulation during waking induces interhemispheric EEG asymmetry during subsequent sleep in the rat
TLDR
In the 6 h recovery period following sleep deprivation, spectral power of the nonrapid eye‐movement (NREM) sleep EEG in the 0.75–6.0 Hz range exhibited an interhemispheric shift towards the cortex that was contralateral to the intact whiskers, which support the theory that sleep has a regional, use‐dependent facet.
Handedness leads to interhemispheric EEG asymmetry during sleep in the rat.
TLDR
It is concluded that inherent laterality is manifested when animals are exposed to complex behavioral tasks, and sleep plays a role in consolidating the hemispheric dominance of the brain.
Interhemispheric sleep EEG asymmetry in the rat is enhanced by sleep deprivation.
TLDR
The different interhemispheric asymmetries in NREM and REM sleep suggest that the two sleep states may subserve different functions in the brain.
Brain topography of the human sleep EEG: antero‐posterior shifts of spectral power
TLDR
The results suggest that anterior and posterior cortical regions may be differently involved in the sleep process.
Regional differences of the human sleep electroencephalogram in response to selective slow-wave sleep deprivation.
TLDR
The 'resistance' to selective SWS deprivation of the frontal area, together with its larger increase of EEG power during recovery, may be interpreted as a sign of a greater sleep need ofThe frontal cortical areas, confirming that some aspects of the regulatory processes of human sleep are local in nature and may show use-dependent characteristics.
Interhemispheric EEG asymmetries during unilateral bright-light exposure and subsequent sleep in humans.
TLDR
The results reflect rather a hemispheric asymmetry in the alerting action of light than a use-dependent recovery function of sleep in response to the visual stimulation during prior waking.
Frontal predominance of a relative increase in sleep delta and theta EEG activity after sleep loss in humans.
TLDR
The data demonstrate that the enhancement of slow wave EEG activity during sleep following extended wakefulness is most pronounced in frontal cortical areas.

Enhanced slow-wave activity within NREM sleep in the cortical and subcortical EEG of the cat after sleep deprivation.
TLDR
It is concluded that, in all brain structures studied, the EEG during NREM is characterized by high levels of SWA, and in each brain structure, SWA within NREM sleep is enhanced after a prolonged vigil, which may indicate that SWA reflects a recovery process in cortical and subcortical structures.
All‐night dynamics of the human sleep EEG
TLDR
The results are consistent with recent electrophysiological studies indicating that the establishment of NREMS is associated with a progressive hyperpolarization of thalamocortical neurons during which the membrane potential exhibits oscillations first in the spindle frequency range and then in the range of SWA.
Time course of EEG power density during long sleep in humans.
TLDR
The present data do not provide evidence for a 12.5-h sleep-dependent rhythm of deep NREM sleep, and it is concluded that the time course of SWA in base-line and recovery sleep could be adequately described by an exponentially declining function with a horizontal asymptote.
Sex differences in the sleep EEG of young adults: visual scoring and spectral analysis.
TLDR
Analysis of baseline sleep of 13 men and 15 women and published data on the effects of sleep deprivation on EEG power spectra did not suggest a common mechanism underlying sleep deprivation effects and the sex difference in sleep EEGs, but it was concluded that sex differences in EEG powerSpectral analysis detected significantly higher power densities during non-REM sleep over a wide frequency range in the female versus male subjects.
EEG Power Density during Nap Sleep: Reflection of an Hourglass Measuring the Duration of Prior Wakefulness
TLDR
The data support the hypothesis that EEG power density during non-rapid eye movement sleep is only determined by the prior history of sleep and wakefulness and is not determined by clock-like mechanisms.
