  • Sleep-Wake Regulation Of Sleep Essay

    Sleeping is a natural part of our daily life. It is a behavior that is displayed every day and is necessary for us to function. To be able to rest efficiently an animal, be it a human or another mammal, needs to fall asleep in a matter of seconds or minutes; but since a sleeping animals are more vulnerable to predation, it also needs to wake easily in case of threat. Those requirements show how well regulated the sleep-wake regulation has to be. Historically, sleep studies have been done by a combination of electroencephalography (EEG) and electromyography (EMG), the signals obtained allowed to define three sleep/wake stages(REF). The first one is displayed by awake animal, the EEG show a high frequency activity (beta waves) and the EMG signal is high, reflecting the motor activity of the animal. The second and third stages are present in sleeping animals, called respectively non-rapid eye movement sleep (NREM sleep) and rapid eye movement sleep (REM sleep). They are characterized by a slow EEG activity (delta waves) during the NREM sleep and a high frequency activity (theta waves) coupled with a…

  • EEG Compression And Pructural Priming

    As previously mentioned, in addition to the structural priming paradigm, the proposed study will make use of the measurement of event-related potentials via EEG. In order to measure the potentials accurately, there needs to be a starting point for which to begin the EEG measurements. Peter Hagoort (2008) suggests that the EEG measurement for an experiment measuring the P600, such as the proposed study, should begin at the final word of the sentence. However, I disagree with this idea, and side…

  • Quail

    The collars use were neck loop transmitters and body loop transmitters and were 5% or less of the quail’s body mass. Some birds were released in pairs, while other birds were released alone. Some birds were also kept overnight and released in a different location within a 24-hour period. All quail died within 16 days of the study. Factors contributing to quail fatality were predation, stress, and poor habitat condition. Montezuma Quail rely on cover to escape from predators, and poor habitat…
