Sleep spindles in EEG recordings of adults are most prominent over the central and frontal midline regions. Early magnetoencephalographic recordings agreed with conventional EEG findings. However, more recent small-array magnetoencephalography and quantitative EEG studies suggest that the source areas for spindles are more widespread. We used a whole-head… CONTINUE READING
