Modulation of Sleep Homeostasis by Corticotropin Releasing Hormone in REM Sleep-Deprived Rats
Theta/Delta. Theta/delta ratio is shown as mean of the total power in fast the (6.6–9.0 Hz) band divided by total power in fast (2.5–4.0 Hz) band, computed throughout 11 hours period in the light and dark phases of the recovery period. ACSF, artificial cerebrospinal fluid; CRH, corticotrophin-releasing hormone; αhCRH, alpha helical ; AW, active wake; QW, quiet wake; L NREM, low amplitude NREM sleep; H NREM, high amplitude NREM sleep; PS, REM sleep; Rec. Recovery period. The white panels indicate the light phase and the gray ones, the dark phase. *- different from baseline, #-different from ACSF group, and ‡- different from hCRH group. Main effects of sleep parameter are indicated by connecting lines above the bars. ANCOVA, followed by the Newman-Keuls test, .
