The incidence of new-onset atrial fibrillation (NOAF) is increasing both in the Asian populations and Western countries. Several demographic and clinical risk factors were independently associated with NOAF, including ageing, male sex, obesity, obstructive sleep apnea syndrome, hypertension, coronary artery disease, renal dysfunction and heart failure. However, some differences in the incidence of NOAF, the prevalence of some risk factors and lifestyle or environmental conditions may exist between Asian and Western countries.

Studies on EEG slowing in the progression of sleep since the discovery of electroencephalogram (EEG) in the 1920s, and identification of rapid eye movement (REM) sleep in the 1950s lead to the current principle that human sleep consists of REM and non-REM (NREM) sleep cycles. In this lecture, I will review sleep-wake homeostasis. Quantitative analysis of sleep EEG has revealed that delta EEG activity is enhanced according to the length of prior wakefulness, and achieved the recovery of the brain.
