A short-term movement that goes against the general trend. For example, if the DJIA rallies on a given trading day but overall is in the midst of a prolonged bear market, the rally is called a wave against the bearish tide.

A positive delta wave in lead aVF identified a right anterior/anterolateral accessory pathway (RA/RAL).
For the Age 2 (30 to 49) group, the Alpha waves were decreased, however they were not significant, but the Theta and Delta waves were significantly increased.
Stages 2 and 3 are deeper sleep, and associated with delta waves on the EEG.
The characteristic ECG findings include a short Printerval, a wide QRS complex, and the presence of a delta wave. The PR interval is short 0.12 second) owing to the electrical impulse bypassing the normal delay occurring at the atrioventricular (AV) node and rapidly stimulating the ventricles.
Short PR interval and delta wave is the expression of preexcitation caused by accessory pathway.

This third stage of sleep (https://education.ninds.nih.gov/brochures/Brain-Basics-Sleep-6-10-08-pdf-508.pdf) comes with  the slow brain waves known as delta waves and the eyes and muscles do not move.
The short PR interval (0.10 seconds), wide QRS complex (0.12 seconds), and delta waves (best seen in leads II, III, aVF, V1, V3-V6), are features of ventricular preexcitation of the Wolff-ParkinsonWhite type (WPW).
