Abstract:

Recent experimental work has shown that in the cat the deepest stage of sleep is electroencephalographically characterized by low voltage fast rhythms, similar to those occurring during wakefulness, and by complete disappearance of muscular tonus. This has been fully confirmed by several findings obtained in our laboratory. The present research has been undertaken with the aim to study the nervous mechanisms underlying this deepest sleep. More particularly, experiments have been done to study the mechanisms responsible for the desynchronization of the electrocortical activity characterizing it. Author
