Eight subjects spent a single night in the sleep laboratory. Event-related potentials (ERPs) were recorded during the presentation of two auditory "oddball' stimulus conditions in which tonal frequency was manipulated. In the first condition, 1000 Hz "standard' and 2000 Hz "deviant' tones were presented. In the second condition, the deviant tone was reduced to 1050 Hz. In both conditions, deviant probability was 0.2. Stimuli were presented every 600 ms during wakefulness and stages 2, 4, and… CONTINUE READING
