Before your body goes to full sleep mode,your body shakes.(Sometimes you sleep through it)It gives you the illusion that you fell. Scientists are not exactly sure why,but that is where we get the expression falling asleep.

The stages of sleep are: NREM 1, NREM 2, NREM 3, and REM sleep.

The deepest stage of sleep is NREM 3, it is also called slow wave sleep since it has delta waves on an EEG.

Dreams occur in REM sleep and is one of the shallowest stages of sleep.

Is rem sleep deep?

3/13/2012 jhh: REM sleep is NOT deep sleep. In fact, it is the lightest stage of sleep. In order from awake to deep sleep: AWAKE, REM, LIGHT, DEEP. Deep sleep and REM sleep are the most important stages though. Light sleep doesn't do much for you. Deep replenishes your body, while REM replenishes your mind. Older answer (not accurate): Yes. It is the deeper form of sleep that we experience during our sleep cycle, rem sleep is where dreaming occurs But not the deepest sleep, which would be delta. That's where, unless your a mother and hear your baby cry, you are oblivious to your environment.

How many stages of sleep are there?

Stage 1 is light sleep where you drift in and out of sleep and can be awakened easily. In this stage, the eyes move slowly and muscle activity slows. During this stage, many people experience sudden muscle contractions preceded by a sensation of falling.In stage 2, eye movement stops and brain waves become slower with only an occasional burst of rapid brain waves. When a person enters stage 3, extremely slow brain waves called delta waves are interspersed with smaller, faster waves. In stage 4, the brain produces delta waves almost exclusively. Stages 3 and 4 are referred to as deep sleep, and it is very difficult to wake someone from them. In deep sleep, there is no eye movement or muscle activity. This is when some children experience bedwetting, sleepwalking or night terrors.In the REM period, breathing becomes more rapid, irregular and shallow, eyes jerk rapidly and limb muscles are temporarily paralyzed. Brain waves during this stage increase to levels experienced when a person is awake.

During what cycle of sleep does the body do most of its energy restoration?

The most restorative stage of sleep is NREM-3.In a sleep cycle you progress through the stages:Initial sleep induction: NREM-1 -> NREM-2 -> NREM-3Full sleep cycle: NREM-3 -> NREM-2 -> NREM-1 -> REM -> NREM-1 -> NREM-2 -> NREM-3.A full sleep cycle takes approximately 90 minutes, but the time you spend in each stage changes during the night. At first you spend more time in stage 3, but as your body rests it will spend more and more time in REM.
