Therapeutic hypothermia (following brain injury) could be used to further test this. Certainly in human neonates, they still sleep cycle during the hypothermia. Clinical practice slightly varies, so there will be some infants with the same extent of brain damage but some cooled and some not. Kim will try to address this question in her new brain injury grant.
