Abstract : The study indicates that the sleep patterns of the monkey, as determined by the electroencephalogram, heart rate, and electromyogram, are altered following a pulsed dose of 5000 rads of gamma-neutron radiation. The data indicate a change in the total time devoted to sleep; however, the more notable change appears in the time distribution among the sleep stages. (Author)
