Students will apply the knowledge of polysomnograms they obtained in activity 3E, Polly Want a Somnogram? as they solve a sleep mystery. They will work like detectives to learn about patient sleep patterns. They will then compare and contrast labeled (known) samples of polysomnogram printouts with unlabeled (unknown) samples, much like work done by forensic scientists who compare the electrophoresis patterns of the DNA of a known person with those of an unknown person to help identify the unknown person. Let the sleuthing begin!
