Abstract

Regional differences in the effect of sleep deprivation on the sleep electroencephalogram (EEG) may be related to interhemispheric synchronization. To investigate the role of the corpus callosum in interhemispheric EEG synchronization, coherence spectra were computed in mice with congenital callosal dysgenesis (B1) under baseline conditions and after 6-h sleep deprivation, and compared with the spectra of a control strain (C57BL/6). In B1 mice coherence was lower than in controls in all vigilance states. The level of coherence in each of the three totally acallosal mice was lower than in the mice with only partial callosal dysgenesis. The difference between B1 and control mice was present over the entire 0.5-25 Hz frequency range in non-rapid eye movement sleep (NREM sleep), and in all frequencies except for the high delta and low theta band (3-7 Hz) in rapid eye movement (REM) sleep and waking. In control mice, sleep deprivation induced a rise of coherence in the Delta band of NREM sleep in the first 2 h of recovery. This effect was absent in B1 mice with total callosal dysgenesis and attenuated in mice with partial callosal dysgenesis. In both strains the effect of sleep deprivation dissipated within 4 h. The results show that EEG synchronization between the hemispheres in sleep and waking is mediated to a large part by the corpus callosum. This applies also to the functional changes induced by sleep deprivation in NREM sleep. In contrast, interhemispheric synchronisation of theta oscillations in waking and REM sleep may be mediated by direct interhippocampal connections.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
