Selective SWS suppression does not affect the time course of core body temperature in menBeersma, D. G. M. & Dijk, D-J., 1992, In : Journal of Sleep Research. 1, 3, p. 201-204 4 p.

In eight healthy middle-aged men, sleep and core body temperature were recorded under baseline conditions, during all-night SWS suppression by acoustic stimulation, and during undisturbed recovery sleep. SWS suppression resulted in a marked reduction of sleep stages 3 and 4 but did not affect the time course of core body temperature. These data suggest that sleep stages 3 and 4 of nonREM sleep (i.e. SWS) do not play a major role in the regulation of core body temperature in humans.
