Ah, mysterious sleep. For something we do on a nightly basis, there is still a lot about sleep that may still elude or confuse us.
For example: Why is it relatively common for kids to wet the bed? What is sleep paralysis? And what exactly are people saying when they talk in their sleep?
Dr. Philip Gehrman, PhD, CBSM, clinical director of the Behavioral Sleep Medicine Program at the University of Pennsylvania, told HuffPost that many strange sleep phenomena happen in between stages of wake and sleep.
"It used to be thought that you're either awake or you're asleep, and nothing in the middle," Gehrman told HuffPost. But turns out there are a number of ways that "people can experience things that are not fully wake or not fully sleep."
"A lot of these things are very normal, and you can divide them into two categories: Things that happen in non-REM sleep, and things that happen in REM sleep," he added.
Here, we went to the experts to to clear up the facts about some sleep conditions -- some more common than others. Have you ever experienced any of these?

REM Sleep Behavior Disorder

Sleep Walking and Talking

If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Sleep Paralysis. I thought paralysis was a temporary but integral part of certain phases of sleep.

Taken from wiki:
Rapid eye movement sleep, or REM sleep, accounts for 20–25% of total sleep time in most human adults. The criteria for
REM sleep include rapid eye movements as well as a rapid low-voltage EEG. Most memorable dreaming occurs in this stage.
At least in mammals, a descending muscular atonia is seen. Such paralysis may be necessary to protect organisms from self-damage through physically acting out scenes from the often-vivid dreams that occur during this stage.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

"Bedwetting

Night terrors "

Sleep or night terrors are episodes of fear, flailing and screaming while asleep.

They are common in children but they can affect adults, too.  It can last from few seconds to few minutes.
Sleep or night terrors are kinda rare, affecting only a small percentage of children (4 -12) and a smaller percentage of adults.
