Isolated phasic discharges in anterior tibial muscle: a stable feature of paradoxical sleep.

Abstract

Phasic muscle discharges known currently as "fasciculations" are more frequently encountered in the limb skeletal muscles and predominate in the lower limbs when compared with the upper limbs. Of the lower limbs, the most active during paradoxical sleep (PS) is the anterior tibial muscle. When quantifying phasic discharges of the eyes versus a lower limb… (More)
