Small platform sleep deprivation selectively increases the average duration of rapid eye movement sleep episodes during sleep rebound.


The single platform-on-water (flower pot) method is extensively used for depriving rapid eye movement sleep (REMS). Detailed comparison of sleep-wake architecture, recorded during the rebound period after spending three days on either a small or large platform, could separate the effects of REMS deficit from other stress factors caused by the procedure.
