Slow-wave sleep contrasts with rapid eye movement sleep REMwhich can only occur simultaneously in both hemispheres. Some studies have shown induced asynchronous SWS in non-USWS-exhibiting animals as a result of sagittal transsections of subcortical regions, including the lower brainstemwhile leaving the corpus callosum intact.
If you suspect you have this condition, please talk to us! Meanwhile, James Hetfield told Uncut: It is more beneficial to sleep using both hemispheres; however, the positives of unihemispheric slow-wave sleep prevail over its negatives under extreme conditions.
