Hi Korey,

Welcome to the site. It is very exciting to feel your enthusiasm. I will break down your questions into discrete steps. I would recommend approaching staging systematically. I believe that you could proceed in a way that you can develop some nice tools while generating important research findings.

Sleep Staging Papers. I would recommend that you start by reviewing Gross et al. and Leclercq et al.. I have always wanted to go through the Gross paper in detail. Please respond with your thoughts.

Please let us know how you intend to proceed.

SignalRasterView was developed specifically to view signals and annotations. There are a lot of possibilities. Our plan was always to convert the GUI from generating a figure to writing to a figure in a GUI. With just a few buttons, it would be straight forward to scroll through the signal and see the data.

(1) SignalRasterView and Sleep Stages. I would recommend adding the annotation file as an input. If the input is present, sleep stage information would be added to the signal raster view. I would recommend changing the background color of each epoch by stage.

(2) SignalRasterView and Scoring. Our scorers tell us that they want to look at the data at multiple scales and include other signals. Consider adding a second figure panel. A revised GUI could be added as a 'scoring' configuration option.

I wrote SignalRasterView, so feel free to discuss strategies for adding sleep stage scoring. It may be possible to coordinate effort.

Good Luck!
