Remote long-term registrations of sleep-wake rhythms, core body temperature and activity in marmoset monkeys

Abstract

Initial studies in the day active marmoset monkey (Callithrix jacchus) indicate that the sleep-wake cycle of these non-human primates resembles that of humans and therefore conceivably represent an appropriate model for human sleep. The methods currently employed for sleep studies in marmosets are limited. The objective of this study was to employ and… (More)
