Nonsmooth Maps and the Fast-Slow Dynamics of Sleep-Wake Regulation: Part II
In part I, the Two-Process model for sleep-wake regulation was discussed and it was shown that it could usefully be represented as a one-dimensional map with discontinuities. Here, we discuss some recent, more physiological, models of sleep-wake dynamics. We describe how their fast-slow structure means that one can expect them to inherit many of the dynamical features of the Two-Process model.
