The 24 h time course of intracranial temperature, recorded subdurally at the parahippocampal gyrus in six patients (19 24 h periods), exhibited a prominent 24 h rhythm with its crest located at 20-21 h. The declining trend of intracranial temperature between lights off and sleep onset persisted in the first nonREM sleep episode (studied in two patients, seven sleep episodes). The correlation between EEG slow-wave activity (SWA) in nonREM sleep and the change in temperature explained < 25% of… CONTINUE READING
