Fig. 12 : RPS in kittens
- I. 30 h after birth: Behavioral arousal.
- II. 2 min after I. RPS Disappearance of neck muscle activity. Eye
movements, acceleration of respiration. The EEG is similar to I.
- III. Same kitten (21 days after birth). Behavioral arousal; slow
7/sec cortical activity.
- IV. 3 min after III. RPS;fast low voltage cortical activity. Disappearance
of the EMG with some jerks.
- 1: Cortical EEG.
- 2: EMG of the neck.
- 3: Eye movements.
- 4: Respiration.
Scale: 1 sec, 50 ,microV.
