Title
(EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR FACILITATING WAKEFULNESS
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ POUR FAVORISER L'ÉVEIL
Abstract
(EN) The present disclosure pertains to manipulating electrical activity in the brain of a subject to facilitate wakefulness. The system comprises: a sensory stimulator; a sensor configured to generate output signals conveying information related to brain activity, activity of the central nervous system, and/or activity of the peripheral nervous system of the subject; and a processor configured to: receive a target wake-up moment for the subject; determine one or more activity parameters of the subject during the sleep session; determine whether the one or more activity parameters indicate the subject is in deep sleep a predetermined amount of time before the target wake-up moment; and, responsive to the one or more activity parameters indicating the subject is in deep sleep, cause the one or more sensory stimulators to guide the activity parameters and facilitate/accelerate a transition from deep sleep to light sleep before the target wake-up moment.
(FR) La présente invention concerne la manipulation de l'activité électrique dans le cerveau d'un sujet pour favoriser l'éveil. Le système comprend : un stimulateur sensoriel; un capteur configuré pour générer des signaux de sortie transportant des informations relatives à l'activité cérébrale, l'activité du système nerveux central et/ou l'activité du système nerveux périphérique du sujet; et un processeur configuré pour : recevoir un moment de réveil cible pour le sujet; déterminer un ou plusieurs paramètres d'activité du sujet pendant la session de sommeil; déterminer si les un ou plusieurs paramètres d'activité indiquent que le sujet est en sommeil profond pendant un laps de temps prédéterminé avant le moment de réveil cible; et, en réponse aux un ou plusieurs paramètres d'activité indiquant que le sujet est en sommeil profond, amener les un ou plusieurs stimulateurs sensoriels à guider les paramètres d'activité et faciliter/accélérer une transition du sommeil profond au sommeil léger avant le moment de réveil cible.
