The large N1 wave of the auditory event-related potentials (ERPs) typically occurring to the first stimulus after a long silent interval seems to be associated with the involuntary initial-orienting response. Since the mechanisms involved in the generation of this brain response are assumed to be activated automatically, the present study aims at determining whether this electrophysiological response can also be elicited during human REM sleep, the sleep stage considered most sensitive to… CONTINUE READING
