ApoE Sleep

Influence of the Apolipoprotein-E Genotype on Brain Activity during Sleep and Wakefulness

Background and aims

In this study, simultaneous EEG/fMRI measurements are carried out on test persons while they are in a calm waking state and while they are asleep. The measurements are carried out on healthy test persons whose genotype has been determined to include the apolipoprotein-E (ApoE) gene. The aim is to study neurovascular (EEG-fMRI) coupling during various sleep phases, in its dependence on the ApoE genotype. In addition, potential relevance for memory consolidation is being explored.
