The form of the average evoked response to clicks is highly correlated with the background electroencephalogram. However, the response during the emergent low-voltage "dreaming" stage is different from that seen during the low-voltage phase at the beginning of sleep. The results provide additional evidence that the emergent low-voltage stage is a neurophysiologically unique phase.
