We first review the concept of delta homeostasis as formulated in our 1974 model and as developed quantitatively by Borbely and colleagues in several versions of the two-process model. We illustrate difficulties in the application of this quantitative model to the negative delta rebound in the rat and we put forward additional evidence that the negative rebound is a pathological rather than a homeostatic response to sleep deprivation. We next review experiments on rats in which the waking… CONTINUE READING
