Figure 5. An episode of paradoxical sleep is followed by a burst of SWD and then a period of attentive wakefulness. During the paradoxical phase small rostrum and eye movements were present and during the wakefulness period theta waves and intense movements occurred. Notice that theta waves during the wakefulness period exhibit a lower voltage than during paradoxical sleep, as is the rule. For abbreviations, see legends to Figures 1 and 2.
