Max Planck Institute When we drift into deep slow-wave sleep (SWS), waves of neuronal activity wash across our neocortex. Birds also engage in SWS, but they lack this particular brain structure. Researchers from the Max Planck Institute for Ornithology in Seewiesen, Germany together with colleagues from the Netherlands and Australia have gained deeper insight into the sleeping avian brain. They found complex 3D plumes of brain activity propagating through the brain that clearly differed...

University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine Pulling an "all-nighter" before a big test is practically a rite of passage in college. Usually, it's no problem: You stay up all night, take the test, and then crash, rapidly catching up on lost sleep.

Electrooculography, sometimes shortened to EOG, is the tracing of electricity used for operation of the retina in different phases, specifically the resting potential. The results are recorded on an electrooculogram. These are interpreted for opthalmological diagnosis and in recording eye movements. Eye movement measurements: Usually, pairs of electrodes are placed either above and below the eye or to the left and right of the eye. If the eye is moved from the center position towards one...
