    The slow (<1 Hz) rhythm, the most important electroencephalogram (EEG) signature of non–rapid eye movement (NREM) sleep, is generally viewed as originating exclusively from neocortical networks. Here we argue that the full manifestation of this fundamental sleep oscillation in a...

The relative importance of mean timing of daily activities versus intraindividual variability in the timing of daily activities in relation to health outcomes such as sleep has yet to be established. Furthermore, age-related changes in sleep could affect this relationship. The study...
