    Homework Problem

    I was wondering if you could explain REM and NREM sleep and maybe explain the Hobson and McCarley study on dreaming and activation-synthesis of the dream process.

    Homework Problem

    REM sleep is Rapid Eye Movement sleep, a "deep" stage of sleep that is sometimes called "paradoxical sleep" because the muscles are generally inactive/fully relaxed but the brain is very active. This stage is associated with dreaming and probably consolidation of memory, processing short-term memories into long-term storage.

    NREM sleep is all the other stages of sleep: Non-Rapid Eye Movement Sleep.

    Google has this information on the Hobson McCarley sleep study.
