The relationship of arousal threshold, amounts of various sleep stages, and subjective rating of sleep was studied in two separate experiments involving 7 and 26 young adult subjects, respectively. Electroencephalographic sleep stage data, subjective response data, and arousal threshold data were collected over a series of nights in the sleep laboratory. Only nonsignificant relationships were found between magnitude of arousal threshold and amounts of various sleep stages or subjective rating… CONTINUE READING
