Electroencephalography (EEG) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) are key neuroimaging techniques used to explore the mechanisms of sleep disorders. Sleep spindle, K-complex and sleep slow wave are specific sleep electrical waves, which are very important to our understanding of the mechanisms and clinical implications of sleep. Resting-state fMRI can help us address the characteristic structural and functional changes in brain network properties, while EEG can help us address the electrophysiological microcosmic characteristics of sleep and/or sleep disorders. The application of EEG and fMRI methods can help us form a more comprehensive understanding of the mechanisms of physiology and pathology in sleep and sleep disorders. Combining the two methods can improve both temporal and spatial resolution, and can provide more valuable information.

Thus, the purpose of this Research Topic is to gain an improved understanding of the effects of sleep specific electrical waves using neuroimaging methods in sleep physiologies and pathologies, from basic to clinical research using EEG and fMRI methods. We hope that this will contribute to a better comprehension of the links between the brain, behavior and sleep, and will offer an up-to-date view on how sleep affects our brain. Original research articles, reviews, protocols, commentaries, systematic reviews and meta-analyses are welcome.

We welcome manuscripts of the following physiologies and pathologies:
• Sleep
• Sleep EEG in health and diseases
• Insomnia
• Sleep deprivation
• Obstructive sleep apnea
• Depression/anxiety and insomnia
• Dementia and insomnia

Investigated using the following techniques:
• EEG/ERP
• Magnetoencephalography (MEG)
• Resting-state fMRIsuch as functional connectivity, ReHo, ALFF, Granger causal density
• Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), DWI, DTT
• Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)
• Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), tACS

Potential studies include the following:
• Sleep in cognition, aging and diseases
• Sleep spindles, K-complex, sleep slow wave
• Entropy, Asymmetry, Phase synchronization, PLI
• Sleep rhythm, spindle rhythm, K-complex rhythm


Keywords: sleep disorder, Insomnia, Sleep deprivation, Obstructive sleep apnea, Sleep rhythm
