The nature of spontaneous unitary activity of rat neocortex was investigated during slow wave sleep and urethane anaesthesia. Neurones in layer IV and V locations fired in a burst-pause pattern at a low burst repetition rate (0.5–4 per second) during both stage 3/4 sleep and urethane anaesthesia. Occasionally an alternative mode of firing (spindle clusters), associated with focal spindle wave activity, was also found to occur in both states. Using dual microelectrode implants it was found that… CONTINUE READING
