Bipolar electrical recordings from the cerebral lobes of chick embryos and of freely moving chicks after hatching indicate that spontaneous electrical activity begins about the eleventh to thirteenth day of incubation, but electroencephalographic patterns characteristic of behavioral sleep or attention appear within six hours after hatching. High amplitude, slow waves, are characteristic of behavioral sleep; low amplitude, fast waves are characteristic of behavioral attention. During sleeping… CONTINUE READING
