Sugihara and Gotoh ( 1973) recorded and compared the EEG activities from different forebrain areas and the optic tectum in the fowl during states of arousal, slow-wave sleep, and paradoxical sleep. They found that no regular slow waves, such as those which are seen in the hippocampus of the mammal during arousal and paradoxical sleep, could be observed in the hippocampus of chickens, nor did high-voltage fast waves appear in the archistriatum during arousal. Regular 9- to 13-Hz waves did appear in the paleostriatum primitivum during slow-wave sleep.
