If patients produce alpha rhythm with eye closure, SEMs are not part of the criteria to score stage W (although they are characteristic during eyes-closed stage W). Chapter 3 Sleep Staging in Adults 31 Stage N1 Stage N2 Low-amplitude mixed-frequency (LAMF) activity is defined as a low-amplitude EEG pattern with predominantly 4- to 7-Hz activity. Stage N1 is characterized by LAMF activity and the absence of sleep spindles (SSs) and K complexes (KCs) not associated with arousal. SEMs may occur (see Table 3–3).

During eyes open stage W (Fig. 3–1), the EEG consists of low-amplitude activity (chiefly beta and alpha frequencies) without the rhythmicity of alpha rhythm (8–13 Hz most prominent over occipital derivations). Often, muscle artifact (high-frequency activity) is also present in the EEG. 5–2 Hz) may occur. The submental (chin) electromyogram (EMG) is usually relatively increased compared with that during sleep. The majority of individuals with eyes-closed stage W will demonstrate alpha rhythm most prominent in the occipital area.
