REM Behavioural Disorder

Our body muscles, with the exception of those used in breathing are usually paralyzed during REM (dreaming) sleep. In some cases this paralysis is incomplete or absent, thus allowing dreams to be acted out. Behaviour such as this can be violent and result in serious injuries to the victim and bed-partner. After awakening, the person will usually be able to recall vivid dreaming. This can be treated with medication.
