Title:
Heritability of sleep electroencephalogram.
Abstract:
BACKGROUND: Understanding the basis of sleep-related endophenotypes might help to pinpoint factors modulating susceptibility to psychiatric disorders.

Here we report on the results of a classical twin study in monozygotic (MZ) and dizygotic (DZ) twin pairs examining the genetic effect on sleep electroencephalogram (EEG) composition.
