Abstract:

The study of the brain mechanisms underlying the changes of the level of consciousness and their electrophysiological correlates has been approached in the following ways. A Brain stem and forebrain influences on the behavioral and EEG patterns of wakefulness and sleep. a Study of the brain stem and forebrain influences on the maintenance of behavioral and EEG patterns of sleep in man. b Study of the brain stem structures responsible for the EEG patterns of paradoxical sleep in the cat. c Induction of paradoxical sleep by direct brain stimulations in the cat. B Cerebral evoked electrical activity and level of consciousness. Study of the averaged visual evoked response during sleep, barbiturate narcosis and coma in man and cats. C Organization of the EEG activity during sleep and comatose states in man autocorrelographic and spectral power analysis. Author
