Direct depth recording of the striate cortex during REM sleep in man: are there PGO potentials?

Electroencephalography and Clinical Neurophysiology
P SalzaruleH Y Stenal


Direct recording from the striate cortex was performed in an adult patient and the activity which occurred during paradoxical sleep is described. Monophasic and diphasic potentials, isolated or grouped in bursts, were observed, with no strict relationships with oculomotor activity. Arguments in favour of and against these potentials being PGO waves are discussed

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Sexual Dimorphism in Neurodegeneration

There exist sex differences in neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders. For instance, multiple sclerosis is more common in women, whereas Parkinson’s disease is more common in men. Here is the latest research on sexual dimorphism in neurodegeneration
