Sleep decision – accumulated sleep/wake scores
Estimated breath frequency
Our PiezoSleep data collection software scores sleep and wake automatically while the system is running; processing real-time pressure signals from animals during sleep or waking activity. A highly sensitive, calibrated piezoelectric sensor is located under the rodent cage. PiezoSleep collects the analog data, digitizes the data and roughly computes sleep and wake; viewable in real time.
The Single Channel tab is selected in the image above showing the piezoelectric signal (1 top left pane), sleep decision statistic (2 top right pane), power spectrum (3 bottom left pane), and the breath rate frequency (4 bottom right pane) for an individual mouse.
Once data is collected by PiezoSleep, it can be easily imported into our SleepStats Software.
With SleepStats Data Explorer, users can drill-down deep into the collected information and determine what’s most relevant. The SleepStats Software was designed from the ground-up to be intuitive for end users.
SleepStats software is used to analyze and graph data, using files generated by PiezoSleep. The software uses proprietary algorithms to compute extremely accurate sleep/wake scoring. Files from PiezoSleep are easily imported into SleepStats which shows multiple graphical displays of the data and allows for export of sleep/wake data for further analysis in excel format.
The SleepStats Data Explorer offers
- Percent sleep (night and day options)
- Percent wake over sliding interval
- Percent sleep over 24 hours
- Plot sleep/wake decision histogram
- Sleep-bout length histogram (default or user defined)
- Sleep-bout length histogram (day over night)
- Easy file export to Excel for offline analysis
Additionally, users have the option to zoom in and overlay raw sensor data on sleep wake plot at any point during the experiment.
