Table 3 Effect of sleep deprivation on CSD propagation speed and propagation failure

From: Acute sleep deprivation enhances susceptibility to the migraine substrate cortical spreading depolarization

Group n Propagation speed (mm/min) Propagation Failure (%)
Control 30 3.0 ± 0.4 31 ± 12
6 h sleep deprivation 17 3.0 ± 0.5 32 ± 13
12 h sleep deprivation 11 3.0 ± 0.3 30 ± 12
  1. Acute sleep deprivation did not affect propagation speed or propagation failure of CSD in rats. Control groups for 6 h and 12 h sleep deprivation were pooled for statistical analysis, as no significant difference was found between the two control groups
  2. Measurements were made of the first CSD recorded after topical KCl application
  3. Values are average ± SD
