Abstract

Cash et al. (Reports, 22 May 2009, p. 1084) argue that the human K-complex, a defining characteristic of slow-wave sleep, is a unipolar electroencephalogram (EEG) wave reflecting a simple neuronal hyperpolarizing event. We disagree with this conclusion and point to several confounding aspects of the study.
