Abstract The estimation of functional interdependencies within the autonomous nervous system (ANS) has gained increasing importance to quantify the relationship between neuronal and cardiac activity. The present paper introduces a biomedical signal processing approach based on computational resources to serve as a supportive tool in the characterisation of sleep. By making use of linear methods and statistical tests upon 10 electroencephalographic (EEG) and electrocardiographic (ECG) overnight sleep recordings; the computation of crosscorrelation and wavelet coherence is focused on finding distinguishable features amongst the testing subjects. The results demonstrate that mid-range neuronal oscillations (e.g. q, a and V) interact with cardiac power bands at different levels, especially during unrelated REM sleep stages.
