This asymmetrical EEG pattern may be related to the apparent lack of REM sleep in these mammals. Studies in land mammals have generally shown that REM sleep amounts are greatest at birth. Therefore it was thought that REM sleep in dolphins might be observed if they were examined shortly after birth.

Humans reporting more than 7 h of nightly sleep have a shorter life span, but there is relatively little shortening of life span in humans who have less than 7 h of sleep. Only the very small percentage of humans with sleep times of less than 5 h have an appreciable shortening of life span, but this is far less than the reduced life span of humans with 9 or more hours of sleep, who constitute a much larger group.
