Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR DETERMINING REFERENCE SLOW WAVE ACTIVITY IN A SUBJECT
Abstract:
The present disclosure pertains to a reference slow wave activity metric determination system. Instead of collecting information during sleep sessions without stimulation (e.g., baseline and/or sham sessions) to determine a reference amount of slow wave activity in a subject, the present system is configured to build a model between stimulation properties and slow wave enhancement, and determine the reference amount of slow wave activity in the subject (e.g., corresponding to what would occur during baseline sleep and/or sham sessions) using the model. Advantageously, this approach does not require performance of baseline and/or sham sleep sessions, and enables personalization of the reference amount of slow wave activity, which dynamically increases its accuracy as more information is collected.
