    REM
  4. The 24-hour day/night cycle/rhythms that influence the pattern of major biological and behavioral funtions is called your?
    Circadian rhythm
  5. This clock synchronizes sleep cycles?
    Bilogical clocks
  6. What does your biological clock do?
    Synchronizes sleep cycles
  7. Define the stages in NREM?
    • Stage 1 - lightest sleep/easy to arouse
    • Stage 2 - sound sleep/relaxation
    • Stage 3 - deepest sleep/difficult to arouse
    • Stage 4 - vivid full color dreaming/90 min after sleep cycle
  8. This stage of REM is the lightest sleep stage, lasts minutes, and the individual gradually has their vital signs fall. They are easy to arouse, name this stage?
    Stage 1
  9. This stage is sound sleep and relaxation. The individual progresses easily into sleep as their vitals gradually fall, they are easy to arouse, it lasts 10-20 minutes and body functions begin to slow...name this stage of sleep?
    Stage 2
  10. This stage of sleep is the deepset stage of sleep. The individual is difficult to arouse, the cycle lasts 15-30 minutes and vital signs significantly lowers. This is the stage where sleepwalking and bedwetting sometimes occur?
    Stage 3
  11. This stage of sleep the individual experiences vivid full color dreaming. It occurs 90 minutes after sleeping. This is called the REM stage of sleep where loss of skeletal muscle/gastric secretions increase and the individual is difficult to arouse. The stage lasts 20 minutes on average...name this sleep stage?
    Stage 4

    Nocturia
  13. Disruption in adults of either quantity or quality of sleep is called?
    Hypersomnolence
  14. Involves the use of EEG, EMG, and EOG machines to monitor stages of sleep in wakefulness during the nightime sleep. This machine is called a?
