The maturation of the central nervous system, based on the myelinization, starts in the spinal cord then proceeds to the brainstem and forebrain. So, paradoxical sleep mechanisms located in the brainstem are the first to mature and the only ones to function. Then, the slow-wave sleep and waking structures become mature. Namely, the widespread control of neuronal activity exerted by specific REM sleep processes help to direct brain maturation through activity-dependent developmental mechanisms. It may be inferred that REM sleep (and possibly yawning) directs the course of brain maturation in early life through the control of neural activity [25, 26].
