The five stages of REM sleep will always be with me throughout my life, not only did chapter five fully capture my attention, but I have always been interested in figuring out what goes on during my sleep. There are five stages to sleep and each stage has different wavelengths and periods' determining what is going on within that stage. REM sleep is biologically important and probably essential in everyday life. During REM sleep 82 percent is associated with dreams. Dreams have always been a mystery to me. As I learned in lecture, dreams are integrating new experiences with established memories to make sense of and create a virtual reality model of the world. This will always seems to amaze me that our dreams can produce so many implications of real life. With sleeping there comes different types of sleeping disorders like, insomnia, narcolepsy, sleep apnea, night terrors, and sleepwalking. When looking into these disorders you can relate them back to the five stages of REM sleep. All of these concepts are intertwined with each other and If I was going to peruse a degree in psychology I would choose to have an emphasis on the developments of the five stages and developments of dreams with also development and trying to cure sleeping disorders.
