Abstract : Neurophysiological mechanisms of sleep: Investigations on cats and man have led to the discovery of a Ponto limbic system which is responsible for the fast cortical activity during sleep in cat, and for the oneiric activity in man. Neurophysiological mechanisms of attention: Depth recordings in the human brain have shown the existence of a central control of corticipetal afferent during attention. (Author)
