A prolonged period of waking accumulates sleep pressure, increasing both the duration and the intensity of the subsequent sleep period. Delta power, which is calculated from the slow range electroencephalographic (EEG) oscillations (0.1-4 Hz), is regarded as the marker of sleep intensity. Recent findings indicate that not only the duration but also the quality of waking, determines the level of increase in the delta activity during the subsequent sleep period. Elevated levels of extracellular… CONTINUE READING
