Abstract

We examined REM sleep periodicity in typical narcoleptics and patients who had shown signs of a narcoleptic tetrad without HLA-DRB1*1501/DQB1*0602 or DR2 antigens, using spectral analysis based on the maximum entropy method. The REM sleep period of typical narcoleptics showed two peaks, one at 70-90 min and one at 110-130 min at night, and a single peak at around 70-90 min during the daytime. The nocturnal REM sleep period of typical narcoleptics may be composed of several different periods, one of which corresponds to that of their daytime REM sleep.
