Ten narcoleptics off medication were compared to matched controls to determine the pattern and level of electroencephalographic (EEG) vigilance, and its relation to performance ability on the 1 h Wilkinson auditory vigilance task. The narcoleptics performed significantly more poorly and spent significantly less time in wakefulness than controls. The EEG of the patients revealed continual fluctuations between wakefulness, stage 1A (slowed and diffusing alpha) and stage 1B (theta activity). Stage… CONTINUE READING
