Apparently, the production of song in canaries is dominated by leftsided brain structures, as is language in humans. Neural areas concerned with the control of vocalization are much less developed in the female bird (see DeVoogd and Nottenbohm, 1981; Gurney, 1982; Goldman and Nottenbohm, 1983). If, however, the female is given testosterone, the relevant brain structures develop more fully, and the female bird acquires song production (Nottenbohm, 1980b).

Such activity persists up to 1 month of age, when stage 1 and stage 2 sleep can be distinguished (Ookawa and Takagi, 1968). , 1981) have been documented. Sugihara and Gotoh ( 1973) recorded and compared the EEG activities from different forebrain areas and the optic tectum in the fowl during states of arousal, slow-wave sleep, and paradoxical sleep. They found that no regular slow waves, such as those which are seen in the hippocampus of the mammal during arousal and paradoxical sleep, could be observed in the hippocampus of chickens, nor did high-voltage fast waves appear in the archistriatum during arousal.
