How (and why) the immune system makes us sleep

Luca Imeri, Mark R. Opp
2009 Nature Reviews Neuroscience  
We propose that the alterations in sleep architecture during infection are exquisitely tailored to support the generation of fever, which in turn imparts survival value.  ...  Immune signalling molecules are present in the healthy brain, where they interact with neurochemical systems to contribute to the regulation of normal sleep.  ...  Acknowledgements The authors were supported by US National Institutes of Health Grants MH64843 and HL080972, the Department of Anesthesiology of the University of Michigan Medical School, and the Ministero  ...

Machine Learning Approach for Vigilance State Classification in Mice

Anik Muhury
2021
In this study, the performance of these models is documented on an independent dataset.  ...  On the other hand, automatic sleep stage categorization can enhance consistency and reliability, aiding professionals in identifying sleep related health problems.  ...  In this case video data can be used for the scoring process as well which can help track the movement of mice as well as eye movement.  ...
