Publication Date



Sleep stage dynamics - reflected by number, duration, and location of contiguous sleep stage bouts - provide a measure of sleep fragmentation, but have not been assessed in psychiatric disorders. We evaluated whether sleep stage dynamics differed between untreated adults with major depressive disorder (MDD) and healthy controls and how these measures change following 8 weeks of antidepressant therapy.
