Coma

Has any research been done in which a patient in coma has been monitored by sleep labs? Or perhaps CT scan comparisons of "sleeping brain" vs "comatose brain?" Do we know what awakens us from sleep (neurologically speaking)?

Check out this thread, under

Check out this thread, under one of the subtitles it mentions comatose patients and their sleep cycles. It is also interesting the sleep cycles of veg. state patients.
