PMID-18274267[0] Fast sleep spindle (13-15 hz) activity correlates with sleep-dependent improvement in visuomotor performance.

  • mirror-tracing task performance improves following a night's sleep.
  • the improvement is correlated with the fast-spindle activity.
  • spindles were detected from EEG recordings with a 10-16hz butterworth filter in matlab. Spindles had to be >= 15uv, >= 0.5s
    • slow spindles = 10-13Hz, predominant in the frontal regions.
    • fast spindles > 13hz, predominant in the parietal regions.
