Neuronal Control of the Sleep—Wake States
The first chapter of this book describes the history of much of the early lesion and stimulation work as well as the cardinal signs of sleep and the definition of behavioral state. Other chapters describe the neurophysiological and anatomic substrates of various components of EEG-synchronized sleep and REM sleep. These include the synchronized oscillations of non-REM sleep in Chapter 7, the REM-sleep components of PGO waves in Chapter 9, and the muscle atonia and rapid eye movements in Chapter 10.
