CORTICAL ASYMMETRY OF REM-SLEEP EEG FOLLOWING UNILATERAL PONTINE HEMORRHAGE NEUROLOGY Kushida, C. A., Rye, D. B., NUMMY, D., Milton, J. G., Spire, J. P., Rechtschaffen, A. 1991; 41 (4): 598-601


A 24-year-old woman with a left pontine hematoma showed marked asymmetry in the EEG of REM sleep, suggesting that a unilateral pontine lesion is sufficient to disrupt normal REM sleep EEG in the ipsilateral hemisphere. Other REM sleep characteristics (rapid eye movements, muscle atonia) were unaffected by this lesion.
