removed incorrect EEG[edit]

I removed the improper EEG image before. I noticed it was an EEG showing an epileptic seizure (simply because I came to this from such pages... you know how browsing Wikipedia goes!). I've seen a few other EEGs on highlighting particulars of sleep - I'm sure there is a better one but I couldn't find one that didn't have hilighting etc all over it.

The edit was made without being logged in... check the talk pages for me and the IP and you'll see it was really me (should you care) :) --draeath (talk) 18:04, 26 September 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing that out, though I feel it's better to replace the image with another one, which I have done. :) —CodeHydro 18:52, 26 September 2010 (UTC)

Ann Finkbeiner[edit]

I couldn't get to the original New Scientist article online as it's one of those subscription only things. Still I tracked down a copy of the relevant article at a library, it's one of those obsolete things with printed paper. I can confirm that the text in the New Scientist article is the same as the Wikipedia quote except where sections cut out are clearly shown. I've given a citation to the New Scientist article so anyone with access to back issues of the New Scientist can check this too and I removed the {{fact}} tag.

  • Thank you for your contributions to the Sleep state misperception. Yours is the first major expansion of the text I've seen since when I first wrote the article 4 years ago. However, I suspect your source may be exaggerating the actual situation, as journalists tend to do. Whenever possible, try to cite peer-reviewed journal articles or professional text as per WP:Reliable. Reading the article, the information seems to match to two articles in Sleep as sources: Perlis's article and Krystal's research. (Note: You can actually download the full text of Perlis by clicking on the "PDF/Print" tab even if it doesn't say full text.) Could you try to replace the NewScientist quotation with citations from those articles (or any other ones)? I would do it myself but my plate is full.. thanks! :) —CodeHydro 20:36, 9 September 2014 (UTC)
