Automated sleep analysis can be based on simple quantitative analysis of EEG, EOG and EMG and provides a good overview of different vigilance stages. For example, the density of large slow waves reflects NREM sleep, while the absence of such oscillations coupled with low EMG and eye movements are indicative of REM sleep.
