Only the recording of brain electrical activity (electroencephalogram, EEG) during sleep revealed that sleep is an active process that is tightly regulated. Thus, every night we cycle through a seemingly predefined series of discrete states (NREM and REM sleep) each with its characteristic EEG activity pattern. Sleep need is also regulated and depends to a large extent on how long we stay awake. Moreover, the longer we stay awake the more intense sleep becomes. The quantitative analysis of the… Expand
