Provided one avoids the extremes of chronotype, and the goal of one’s research is to increase the likelihood of detecting neural activation differences in order to identify a surrogate marker, evaluating RW at 8:00– 9:00 AM and SD at 6:00 AM following a night of total sleep deprivation has proven a successful strategy. Although this schedule does not exactly align the RW and SD sessions to the same circadian phase (and does not allow a decomposition of the effects of sleep deprivation into “circadian” and “homeostatic” components), the scanning times are within a reasonably close circadian window, and they represent the start times of a regular workday and the low point of cognitive performance after a night of sleep deprivation [58, 85].

The contemporary conceptualization of the ascending reticular activating system is built upon the early work of Bremer, Moruzzi, and Magoun. Bremer found that separating the lower medulla and spinal cord from the rest of the brain did not alter the cycling between wakefulness and sleep in cats (the “encephale isolé” preparation) whereas a surgical transection made between the brainstem and midbrain resulted in a sleep-like state [24]. Thus, ascending projections from the brainstem reticular formation were necessary for cortical activation and normal wakefulness.
