Example text

Spindle duration varies to some extent according to age, with longer spindles seen in infancy and early childhood. In infants, spindles of 3 to 4 seconds are common, whereas in adults, spindles of 1 to 2 seconds are typical. Spindle interhemispheric synchrony (the tendency for spindles to occur in each hemisphere at the same time) also occurs as a function of age. Particularly in infants aged under 12 months, the initial spindles seen at onset of Stage II sleep are often asynchronous, occurring first on one side of the brain and then on the other (see Figure 2-38).

Through the first decade, the posterior rhythm’s frequency increases and reaches the adult range, which is between 8 and 13 Hz. Because a posterior rhythm below 8 Hz is considered abnormal after age 8 years, the rule of “eight by eight” can be applied, meaning that by 8 years a posterior rhythm frequency of 8 Hz is expected. Realistically, 8 years can be considered the outer age limit by which the posterior rhythm is expected to reach 8 Hz. In practice, many normal children will attain a posterior rhythm frequency of 8 Hz by as early as 2 years of age.
