The dragon sleeps tonight Most animal species sleep, from invertebrates to primates. However, neuroscientists have until now only actively recorded the sleeping brains of birds and mammals. Shein-Idelson et al. now describe the electrophysiological hallmarks of sleep in reptiles. Recordings from the brains of Australian dragons revealed the typical features of slow-wave sleep and rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. These findings indicate that the brainstem circuits responsible for slow-wave and… Expand
Partial homologies between sleep states in lizards, mammals, and birds suggest a complex evolution of sleep states in amniotes
TLDR
A multiparametric approach in the tegu lizard demonstrates the existence of two sleep states in tegu lizards and suggests that the phenotype of sleep states and possibly their role can differ even between closely related species. Expand
Neural signatures of sleep in zebrafish
TLDR
Fluorescence-based polysomnography in zebrafish reveals two major sleep signatures that share features with those of amniotes, which suggests that common neural sleep signatures emerged in the vertebrate brain over 450 million years ago. Expand
Bird-like propagating brain activity in anesthetized Nile crocodiles
TLDR
Investigating the spatiotemporal patterns of electrophysiological phenomena in Nile crocodiles anesthetized with isoflurane demonstrated that HShW within the DVR propagate in complex patterns similar to those observed for avian slow waves recorded from homologous brain regions. Expand
Budgerigars have complex sleep structure similar to that of mammals
TLDR
The similarities in sleep architecture observed in mammals, songbirds, and now budgerigars, alongside recent work in reptiles and basal birds, provide support for the hypothesis that a common amniote ancestor possessed the precursors that gave rise to REM and SWS at one or more loci in the parallel evolution of sleep in higher vertebrates. Expand
Evolutionary Origin of Distinct NREM and REM Sleep
TLDR
The evolutionary origin of the distinct REM/NREM sleep states is discussed to gain insight into the mechanistic and functional reason for these two different types of sleep. Expand
A claustrum in reptiles and its role in slow-wave sleep
TLDR
It is reported that a homologue of the claustrum, identified by single-cell transcriptomics and viral tracing of connectivity, also exists in a reptile—the Australian bearded dragon Pogona vitticeps—and has a role in generating sharp waves in the brain during slow-wave sleep. Expand
Spectral Properties of Brain Activity Under Two Anesthetics and Their Potential for Inducing Natural Sleep in Birds
TLDR
Spectral properties of electroencephalographic patterns of pigeons occurring under two commonly used anesthetics, isoflurane and urethane, are analyzed and suggest that anesthesia-induced slow waves appear to provide an acceptable model for researchers interested in investigating sleep-related slow waves utilizing electrophysiological methods not suitable for use in freely behaving birds. Expand
Sleep in vertebrate and invertebrate animals, and insights into the function and evolution of sleep
TLDR
A comprehensive overview regarding the current knowledge of the function and evolution of sleep is provided, including studies focusing on non-mammalian animals species, to address the function of sleep. Expand
Local Aspects of Avian Non-REM and REM Sleep
TLDR
Collectively, the local aspects of sleep described in birds and mammals reveal that wakefulness, NREM sleep, and REM sleep are not always discrete states. Expand
Hippocampal-like network dynamics underlie avian sharp wave-ripples
TLDR
The results provide the first evidence of avian SWRs during natural sleep and under anesthesia, and suggest that the evolutionary origin of SWR activity may precede the mammalian-sauropsid bifurcation. Expand

Evolution of slow-wave sleep and palliopallial connectivity in mammals and birds: A hypothesis
TLDR
The evolution of SWs is linked to the independent evolution of extensive palliopallial connectivity in mammals and birds, as suggested by experiments functionally linking SWs to performance enhancements, and the palliopalial connections that give rise to SWs might also depend onSWs to maintain their efficacy.

Avian sleep homeostasis: Convergent evolution of complex brains, cognition and sleep functions in mammals and birds
TLDR
It is proposed that the convergent evolution of homeostatically regulated SWS in mammals and birds was directly linked to the convergence evolution of large, heavily interconnected brains capable of performing complex cognitive processes in each group. Expand

TLDR
It is hypothesize that shared, ancestral characteristics of sleep in amniotes evolved under selective pressures common to songbirds and mammals, resulting in convergent characteristics ofSleep. Expand
Control of REM Sleep by Ventral Medulla GABAergic Neurons
TLDR
It is shown that a GABAergic (γ-aminobutyric-acid-releasing) pathway originating from the ventral medulla powerfully promotes REM sleep in mice and identifies a key component of the pontomedullary network controlling REM sleep. Expand

Comments on evolution of sleep and the palliopallial connectivity in mammals and birds
TLDR
It is proposed that the review of the Evolution of slow wave sleep and palliopallial connectivity in mammals and birds missed important aspects in relation to the characteristics of sleep in poikilotherm vertebrates and in the evolution of sleep. Expand
Unearthing the Phylogenetic Roots of Sleep
TLDR
An ancient origin for sleep is suggested and the possibility that model organism genetics may reveal the molecular mechanisms that guide sleep and wake is raised. Expand
A putative flip–flop switch for control of REM sleep
TLDR
A brainstem flip–flop switch is proposed, consisting of mutually inhibitory REM-off and REM-on areas in the mesopontine tegmentum that contain GABA (γ-aminobutyric acid)-ergic neurons that heavily innervate the other. Expand

The origin of the whole continuum of mammalian vigilance states including waking, sleep and hibernation is presented and the causes of the alternation NREM-REM in a sleeping episode are presented. Expand
Control of sleep and wakefulness.
TLDR
Genetic studies suggest that brain mechanisms controlling waking and NREM sleep are strongly conserved throughout evolution, underscoring their enormous importance for brain function. Expand
