Barcaro U., Denoth F., Murri L., Navona C., Stefanini A. Changes in the interhemispheric correlation during sleep in normal subjects. In: Electroencephalography and Clinical Neurophysiology, vol. 63 pp. 112 - 118. Elsevier, 1986.
The correlation coefficients between left and right activity in the various frequency bands of the EEG signal were computed during sleep for 11 normal adults. The values of the correlation during REM sleep were compared with those for NREM sleep. This comparison was performed 'locally,' i.e., during each period of the REM-NREM cycle, as well as over the whole night. For 9 out of the 11 examined subjects, both a visual comparison with the hypnogram and a statistical analysis showed the existence of cyclic variations during the night in the delta and/or sigma correlation coefficient. These variations lasted for the whole night and were synchronized with the REM-NREM cycle. A possible connection between these results and data on the interhemispheric relationship given by amplitude analysis is briefly discussed.
