sleep architecture

The pattern made when sleep stages are charted on a hypnogram. Sleep architecture represents the cyclical pattern of sleep as it shifts between the different sleep stages, including non-rapid eye movement (NREM) and rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. It allows us to produce a picture of what sleep looks like over the course of a night, taking into account various depths of sleep as well as arousals to wakefulness. Sleep architecture can be represented by a graph called a hypnogram.
