EEG complexity during sleep: On the effect of micro and macro sleep structure Conference Paper uri icon


  • This work investigates the relation between EEG complexity measures, in particular Fractal Dimension and Sample Entropy, and sleep structure, in terms of both macrostructure, i.e. sleep stages, and microstructure, i.e. phase A activation of CAP sleep. Activation phases are compared with the non-activation periods of non-REM sleep. The study suggests that complexity features can serve as consistent descriptors of sleep dynamics and can potentially assist in the classification of sleep stages. © 2010 IEEE.
