16.the state in which an individual rests quietly in a recumbent position, disengages from the environment, and becomes unresponsive to stimuli
17.a type of dream that we have on a regular basis when we sleep. The majority of our recurring dreams usually appears as a nightmare or a very unpleasant dream. However, recurring dreams can be pleasant.
18.sleeping for uncharacteristically long periods of time
22.caused by a partial obstruction to the air passage that causes the tissue to vibrate resulting in a snoring noise. Snoring can be a symptom of sleep apnea, a serious sleep disorder characterized by pauses in breathing during sleep
24.behavioral activities that contribute to or detract from restorative sleep. Examples of good sleep hygiene include activities such as going to bed at the same time each night, restricting caffeine and alcohol intake near bedtime
26.being watchful and ready to meet danger
27.talking in one’s sleep

6.a wide range of disruptive sleep-related events characterized by full or partial arousal from sleep. They include sleep walking, sleep-related eating, night terrors and bruxism (teethgrinding)
7.a serious, potentially life threatening condition characterized by pauses in breathing during sleep. Sleep apnea may be associated with irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure, heart attack, and stroke. It is treated with a mask-like device called a CPAP, continuous positive air pressure, which fits over the nose and mouth and pumps air into the throat to keep air passages open.
9.unpleasant and/or frightening dreams occurring in REM sleep. Night terrors are characterized by an incomplete arousal from slow wave sleep. If awakened during a night terror, the individual is usually confused and—unlike a nightmare—doesn’t remember details of the event.
