Research on sleep has been of special interest during the last decade for practical as well as theoretical reasons. Electroencephalographic investigations have been of striking importance because the depth of sleep can be determined exactly by this method. This extensively revised edition has been updated and two new chapters added. The neurophysiological basis of epileptic activity introduces the book, followed by studies on the influence of sleep on the epileptic animal Papio papio, and comprehensive details of automated methods of integrated sleep analysis. The activating effect of sleep in epilepsy in general as well as special EEG patterns (spike wave complexes, tonic patterns) and seizure types (Grand mal on awakening, tonic seizures, complex partial seizures, status epilepticus, epileptic encephalopathies, nocturnal paroxysmal dystonia) and the influence of antiepileptic drugs is discussed. Finally, sleep deprivation in general and its importance for the activation of epileptic activity is reported. Subsequent to this, the activation effect of sleep without and with sleep deprivation is compared.
