Dreams and paradoxical sleep
Paradoxical sleep mechanisms
Michel Jouvet - Sleep 17 (8 S) (1994)
Theme : Dreams and paradoxical sleep
Since there are excellent recent reviews concerned with paradoxical sleep (PS) or REM sleep mechanisms (1)(2) (3)(4), it is unecessary to give an overwiew of these reviews. However the following topics need some discussion either because they have not yet received any unequivocal solution or because...
Behavioural and eeg effects of paradoxical sleep deprivation in the cat
Jouvet M. - Reprinted from Excerpta Medica International Congress Series No.87 PROCEEDINGS OF THE XXIlIrd INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS OF PHYSIOLOGICAL SCIENCES Tokyo, September 1965 (1960)
Theme : Dreams and paradoxical sleep
Since the work of Pieron (1913) 18, the effect of sleep deprivation has been largely studied both in man and animaIs. But the problem of sleep has become complicated recently by the demonstration that sleep could not be considered as a unique phenomenon (opposed to wakefulness), but on the contrary ...
Hyperoxia increases paradoxical sleep rhythm in the pontine cat
Arnulf I., Sastre J.P., Buda C., Jouvet M. - Brain Research (1998)
Theme : Dreams and paradoxical sleep
Pontine cat is an ectothermic preparation, whose central temperature can artificially be lowered from 36°C to 26°C; this gradual hypothermia is accompanied by a dramatic increase in paradoxical sleep (PS)....
Paradoxical Sleep - A Study of its Nature and Mechanisms
Michel Jouvet - Progress in Brain Research 18 Sleep Mechanisms (1965)
Theme : Dreams and paradoxical sleep
It has recently been discovered that during behavioural sleep there periodically occurs a state characterized by fast cortical activity similar to that of the waking state, accompanied by a complete disappearance of muscular tonus and of rapid eye movements. This gives rise to the following problem:...
A Study of the Neurophysiological Mechanisms of Dreaming
Michel Jouvet - Electroencephalography and Clinical Neurophysiology 24 Suppl:133 (1963)
Theme : Dreams and paradoxical sleep
Dream activity can be detected only by the short memory of the dream. thus, any effort to delimit the neural structures responsible for such a mysterious phenomenon may appear very risky. Nevertheless, some recent data obtained on humans and animals may contribute to make such an effort less hazardo...
