An atlas of regional brain activity differences during sleep

Takeaway

  • Intracranial electroencephalography (EEG) recordings were used to create an atlas of oscillatory and non-oscillatory brain activity during normal sleep, including some activity patterns that may not be found with scalp EEG recordings.

Why this matters

    These results provide resources (sleep atlas and an open-source dataset) for further research into brain activity in sleep, as well as highlighting that limitations of scalp EEG may be worth consideration in a clinical setting.
