How to use Rem in a sentence
In the sleep cycles there are two main stages, non-REM sleep and REM sleep.
If y is an infinity, rem returns x.
I prefer an alternative derivation from Latin " rem legere " meaning the " right thing " that one has to choose.
At the same time he has nothing to say against the Platonic theory of universalia ante rem (see Idealism).
The brilliant and enterprising Christian Thomasius brought out periodically, in dialogue form, his Monatsgesprdche (1688-1690), written by himself in the vernacular, to defend his novel theories against the alarmed pedantry of Germany, and, together with Strahl, Buddeus and others, Observationes selectae ad rem litterariam spectantes (1700), written in Latin.Advertisement
New babies have extremely short sleep cycles, or periods of deep, light and REM sleep.
Yesteryear's popular artists such as The Beatles, The Who, The Eagles and Chicago are represented, as well as more modern acts such as Coldplay, U2, REM and more.
Throughout the night, the cycles of REM sleep get longer and the sleep gets deeper.
It is believed that sleep walking is caused when the sleeper's pattern of alternating REM and NREM sleep cycles is suddenly broken for any reason.
These brain waves are often indicators of which level of sleep the individual is in according to the REM cycle.Advertisement
These abnormalities can contribute to the lack of regulation of the REM sleep, a part of the sleep cycle.
It is a dysfunction in the brain's chemistry and in some way causes REM disturbances.
Dreams are caused by a combination of thoughts, images and impressions passed through the mind during REM sleep.
Dream research continues to fine tune the previous theories as scientists uncover more and more about the brain's functions during REM sleep and as scientific measuring equipment improves.
Later, you will spend more time in the dream stage, called the REM (Rapid Eye Movement) stage.Advertisement
You will enter the REM stage about ninety minutes after you have gone to sleep and you will have about three to five REM episodes each night.
Patients with sleep apnea have trouble going through the five stages of sleep, often rousing before arriving in the third stage and thus eliminating a large portion of their REM time.
The importance of getting enough rest is no secret but the REM cycle is among the more mysterious aspects of sleeping.
Sleep stages can be organized into two main categories, "non-REM" and "REM" states.
The REM cycle begins roughly 90 minutes after you fall asleep.Advertisement
Dreams occur during REM sleep, which explains the increased brain activity during this stage.
Theory suggests that the muscular paralysis prevents people from physically responding to their dreams, and the strong connection between the REM cycle and dreaming is a significant aspect of sleep research.
Scientists have good reason for their interest in the REM cycle and sleep studies.
The Sleep Society for Neuroscience offers insight into the scientific discoveries derived from REM studies as well as their implications.
While sleep stages are quite different from waking states, the REM cycle is equally as active.Advertisement
The REM cycle is a valuable tool for researcher to use in order to determine the reasons behind sleeping, dreaming and sleep disorders.
Four of the five stages are Non REM stages.
In REM sleep, the brain is near fully active.
The first cycle ends after the first REM stage.
The first four stages will shorten while the REM stage lengths.Advertisement
By the end of the night, you are getting more REM sleep than at the beginning of the night.
Sleep quality is dependent on the amount of time an individual spends in REM sleep.
If you suffer from a sleep disorder, the quality of sleep is minimized due to the less time spent in REM sleep.
During the REM stage of sleep the brain is brimming with activity.
The rapid eye movement is a reliable indicator of REM sleep.Advertisement
It is much easier to understand what does REM stand for when the rapid eye movement is present in a sleeping person.
Sleep is characterized as either REM or NREM, which stands for non-REM.
An exception to this rule is with some people who have experienced brain injuries and are no longer capable of REM sleep because of the damage to the brain.
What distinguishes REM sleep from NREM sleep?
People are more likely to remember details from their dreams occurring during the REM stage and are also less likely to move while in REM sleep.Advertisement
There are also physiological differences between REM and NREM sleep, including breathing rate and brain wave activity.
How do you know if you have awakened during an NREM stage of sleep or an REM stage of sleep?
Remembering the details to your dreams is a good indication that you were awakened during the REM stage, but not being able to recall details of your dreams indicates you were in an NREM stage of sleep upon awakening.
A person who does not encounter this sleep paralysis - or who only encounters it intermittently - may have an REM sleep disorder.
The simple answer is that REM stands for rapid eye movement, but it is obvious that there is much more to this stage of sleep.Advertisement
Interestingly enough, this portion of the sleep cycle was not even discovered until the 1950s, so much research still needs to be done to fully understand not only when REM sleep occurs but also why it occurs.
Interestingly, PLMS affects up to 34 percent of people over 60 and is commonly found in people who have other sleep disorders like narcolepsy, restless leg syndrome, or REM sleep behavior disorder.
Since the brain is unable to get REM sleep in people with sleep apnea, they remain tired throughout the day.
The REM cycle is the most active stage of sleep, during which dreaming and increased mental activity occurs.
The importance of REM sleep is essential to cognitive processing.Advertisement
It is hard to emphasize one stage over another, but sleep disorders often prevent you from achieving deep sleep and the subsequent REM sleep.
The importance of REM sleep is that this is the sleep stage where dreaming occurs.
While scientists continue to study the full range of mental processes that take place during REM sleep, it is accepted that lack of REM sleep can lead to focus and concentration problems.
One argument for this result is the lack of time spent in REM sleep.
Despite the mystery still associated with sleep, disrupted sleep one night will lead to more REM sleep the following night as the body tries to catch up.
The fact that the body will strive to play catch up on this stage of sleep indicates the importance of REM sleep beyond the need for dreams.
Thanks in part to television programs and pop psychologists, many people believe that a lack of REM sleep can lead to death.
While it is true that sleep deprivation can lead to physical and mental health problems, it is the cumulative effect of not sleeping, not just the lack of REM sleep.
Some people worry that if they do not remember dreaming, that they didn't achieve REM sleep.
Remembering a dream is not evidence of REM sleep.
Everyone experiences REM during the sleep cycle, whether you can recall dreaming or not.
Sleep disruption that shortens the time spent in REM can lead to concentration, memory and learning problems.
Most occur during the sleep phase called rapid eye movement, or REM.
Nightmares typically take a little time to experience; so, they generally occur during early morning hours when REM sleep is the longest.
After a person has been sleeping for a period of time, the body goes into a state of REM (rapid eye movement) sleep where dreaming occurs.
However, the rest of the body is basically paralyzed until the REM cycle is complete.
Part of the challenge lies in the fact that little is known about why people sleep, let alone why they have image experiences during the REM cycle.
In fact, people who are deprived of REM sleep, which is the precursor to dreaming, will have many problems, including getting sick more often, having reduced memory and productivity, and other signs of serious sleep disorders.
Sleeping and dreaming are interconnected and both are elements of the five stages of sleep, which include Rapid Eye Movement (REM) and dreaming.
During REM sleep, the body experiences many cardiovascular changes, such as increased heart rate, breathing and blood pressure.
Most people have anywhere from three to five REM cycles per night where dreams are experienced, and even though they aren't always remembered, dreams may be important.
You might even have a slight feeling of dreaming even though you're not in REM sleep.
Rapid eye movement (REM) is the stage of sleep in which dreaming occurs.
If you take a scientific perspective on dreaming, you may find that dreams in which you can't move are reflections of the paradoxical REM state.
The latter makes sense when considering the paradoxical REM state.
Sleepwalking usually happens in the first few stages of deeper sleep, but not during REM sleep.
People who don't get an adequate amount of sleep, especially during the REM stage, can experience many negative side effects.
Narcolepsy is related to the deep, dreaming part of sleep known as rapid eye movement (REM) sleep.
Normally when people fall asleep, they experience 80 to 100 minutes of non-REM sleep, which is then followed by about 20 minutes of REM sleep.
People with narcolepsy, however, enter REM sleep immediately.
In addition, REM sleep occurs inappropriately throughout the day in patients with narcolepsy.
In a few cases, the first signs of narcolepsy are triggered by traumatic damage to the part of the brain that governs REM sleep or from a rapidly growing tumor that puts pressure on this region of the brain.
They are thought to represent an intrusion of REM sleep/dreaming into the wakeful state.
A multiple sleep latency test, which measures sleep latency (onset) and how quickly REM sleep occurs, may also be used.
Antidepressants are also often effective in treating symptoms of abnormal REM sleep.
Dreaming occurs in the fifth stage, during rapid eye movement (REM) sleep.
The nightmares occur during REM sleep, usually in the second half of the night.
The test also measures the amount of REM sleep that occurs.
Two or more episodes of REM sleep under these conditions indicates narcolepsy.
Rapid eye movement (REM) latency-The amount of time it takes for the first onset of REM sleep after a person falls asleep.
Rapid eye movement (REM) sleep-A phase of sleep during which the person's eyes move rapidly beneath the lids.
It typically takes about 90 minutes to cycle through the four deepening stages of NREM sleep before onset of the second phase of sleep known as REM or dream sleep.
Rapid eye movement (REM) sleep is qualitatively different from NREM sleep.
During REM sleep the body is nearly paralyzed, a condition called "atonic," that serves to inhibit the dreamer from physical movement during active dreaming.
Brain-wave monitoring of REM sleep with an electroencephalograph (EEG) reveals a low-voltage, fast-frequency, non-alpha wave record.
Beyond infancy, REM sleep comprises 20-25 percent of the entire sleep period.
Newborns spend approximately 50 percent of their sleep period in the REM phase.
Infants move through REM and non-REM sleep stages in a 90 minute cycle, and they rise to a near-waking state every three to four hours, more often in breastfed infants.
A toddler will spend only about 30 percent of her sleep time in REM dream sleep.
Nightmares occur during REM, or dream-time, sleep and trigger a partial or full awakening.
These frightening dreams occur during rapid eye movement sleep (REM), or dream-time sleep, and trigger a partial or full awakening.
In this hypothesis, the human brain strays from the regular transition into unconsciousness combined with physical paralysis into sleep and then into deep REM sleep.
Renowned architect Rem Koolhaas, who has been the recipient of awards such as the Pritzker Prize in 2000 and the Legion d'Honneur of 2001, designed the room.
It is nihil ad rem that he never carried out the experiments themselves or faked the results.
Generally the theory is that the relaxed mind during REM sleep has the opportunity to process memories and feelings about experiences from when the dreamer was awake.
But the Platonically conceived proof of the being of God contained in the Monologion shows that Anselm's doctrine of the universals as substances in things (universalia in re) was closely connected in his mind with the thought of the universalia ante rem, the exemplars of perfect goodness and truth and justice, by participation in which all earthly things are judged to possess these qualities.
Abelard says, " Sic autem correxit sententiam, ut deinceps rem eamdem non essentialiter sed individualiter diceret."
Thus he defended the universalia ante rem as exemplars existent in the divine intelligence, and censured Aristotle's doctrine of the eternity of the world.
The great age of Scholasticism presents, indeed, a substantial unanimity upon this vexed point, maintaining at once, in different senses, the existence of the universals ante rem, re and post rem.
But, in the Augustinian sense of ideas immanent in the divine mind, the universal ante rem may well be admitted as possessing real existence.
Finally, by abstraction from the individual things of sense, the mind is able to contemplate the universal apart from its accompaniments (animal sine homine, asino, et aliis speciebus); these subjective existences are the universalia post rem of the Nominalists and Conceptualists.
And in a similar spirit he explains the universalia ante rem as being, not substantial existences in God, but simply God's knowledge of things - a knowledge which is not of universals but of singulars, since these alone exist realiter.
Writing to Abel Pouppin (in or about 1547) he complains that Calvin would not return his manuscript, and adds, " mihi ob earn rem moriendum esse certo scio."
Aquinas thought that before the creation the one eternal essence of any kind was an abstract form, an idea in the intellect of God, like the form of a house in the mind of a builder, ante rem; that after the creation of any kind it is in re, as Aristotle supposed; and that, as we men think of it, it is post rem, as Aristotle also supposed.
Of this view the part which was not Aristotle's, the state of " universalia ante rem," was due to the Neoplatonists, who interpreted the " separate forms " of Plato to be ideas in intellect, and handed down their interpretation through St Augustine to the medieval Realists like Aquinas, who thus combined Neoplatonism with Aristotelianism.
The prologue is an organic portion of the Gospel and not a preface written to conciliate a philosophic public. It assumes that the Logos idea is familiar in Christian theology, and vividly summarizes the main features of the Philonic conception - the eternal existence of the Logos, its relation to God (7rpds rem OE 6v, yet distinct), its creative, illuminative and redemptive activity.
In general, Aquinas maintained in different senses the real existence of universals ante rem, in re and post rem.
Henri de Tourville, in his Histoire de la formation particulariste (1903), basing his argument on the Ynglinga Saga, interpreted in the light of " Social Science," reveals Odin, " the traveller," as a great " caravan-leader " and warrior, who, driven f rem Asgard - a trading city on the borders of the steppes east of the Don - by " the blows that Pompey aimed at Mithridates," brought to the north the arts and industries of the East.
