Previous methods for the analysis of temporal structure in sleep and other state time series have described cycles, rhythms, and semi-Markov chains. Methods, however, have been subjective and arbitrary. We propose an objective system of classification for these series, based on definitions of temporal structure which are consistent with those long used in the analysis of quantitative series. An ordered sequence of statistical tests is described which classifies observed behavioral state time… CONTINUE READING
