Sleep deprivation effects on growth factor expression in neonatal rats: a potential role for BDNF in the mediation of delta power.


The sleeping brain differs from the waking brain in its electrophysiological and molecular properties, including the expression of growth factors and immediate early genes (IEG). Sleep architecture and homeostatic regulation of sleep in neonates is distinct from that of adults. Hence, the present study addressed the question whether the unique homeostatic… (More)
