The chimeric mice are then bred to yield a strain in which all the cells of the mouse contain the disrupted gene. Knockout mice are used as EXPERIMENTAL ANIMAL MODELS for diseases (DISEASE MODELS, ANIMAL) and to clarify the functions of the genes.

Sequelae of sarin toxicity at one and three years after exposure in Matsumoto, Japan. (1/147)

In order to clarify the later sequelae of sarin poisoning that occurred in Matsumoto City, Japan, on June 27, 1994, a cohort study was conducted on all persons (2052 Japanese people) inhabiting an area 1050 meters from north to south and 850 meters from east to west with the sarin release site in the center. Respondents numbered 1237 and 836 people when surveys were conducted at one and three years after the sarin incident, respectively. Numbers of persons with symptoms of sarin toxicity were compared between sarin victims and non-victims. Of the respondents, 58 and 46 people had symptoms associated with sarin such as fatigue, asthenia, shoulder stiffness, asthenopia and blurred vision at both points of the survey, respectively. The prevalences were low; some complained of insomnia, had bad dreams, difficulty in smoking, husky voice, slight fever and palpitation. The victims who had symptoms one year after the incident had a lower erythrocyte cholinesterase activity than did those who did not have symptoms at the early stage; such persons lived in an area with a 500 meter long axis north east from the sarin release site. The three-year cohort study clearly showed that the odds ratios of almost all of the symptoms were high in the sarin-exposed group, suggesting a positive relationship between symptoms and grades of exposure to sarin. These results suggest that symptoms reported by many victims of the sarin incident are thought to be sequelae related to sarin exposure.  (+info)

Rapid eye movement sleep behaviour disorder: demographic, clinical and laboratory findings in 93 cases. (2/147)

We describe demographic, clinical, laboratory and aetiological findings in 93 consecutive patients with rapid eye movement (REM) sleep behaviour disorder (RBD), which consists of excessive motor activity during dreaming in association with loss of skeletal muscle atonia of REM sleep. The patients were seen at the Mayo Sleep Disorders Center between January 1, 1991 and July 31, 1995. Eighty-one patients (87%) were male. The mean age of RBD onset was 60.9 years (range 36-84 years) and the mean age at presentation was 64.4 years (37-85 years). Thirty-two per cent of patients had injured themselves and 64% had assaulted their spouses. Subdural haematomas occurred in two patients. Dream content was altered and involved defence of the sleeper against attack in 87%. The frequency of nocturnal events decreased with time in seven untreated patients with neurodegenerative disease. MRI or CT head scans were performed in 56% of patients. Although four scans showed brainstem pathology, all of these patients had apparently unrelated neurodegenerative diseases known to be associated with RBD. Neurological disorders were present in 57% of patients; Parkinson's disease, dementia without parkinsonism and multiple system atrophy accounted for all but 14% of these. RBD developed before parkinsonism in 52% of the patients with Parkinson's disease. Five of the 14 patients with multiple system atrophy were female, and thus the strong male predominance in RBD is less evident in this condition. Psychiatric disorders, drug use or drug withdrawal were rarely causally related to RBD. Clonazepam treatment of RBD was completely or partially successful in 87% of the patients who used the drug. We conclude that RBD is a well-defined condition and that descriptions from different centres are fairly consistent. It is commonest in elderly males and may result in serious morbidity to patients and bed partners. There is a strong relationship to neurodegenerative disease, especially Parkinson's disease, multiple system atrophy and dementia, and neurologists should explore the possibility of RBD in patients with these conditions. RBD symptoms may be the first manifestations of these disorders and careful follow-up is needed. Neuroimaging is unlikely to reveal underlying disorders not suspected clinically. We confirm the effectiveness of clonazepam, but note that attention to the safety of the bed environment may be sufficient for patients with contraindications to the drug.  (+info)

Nightmares and disorders of dreaming. (3/147)

Dreams occur during all stages of sleep. Nightmares are common. They can be associated with poor sleep and diminished daytime performance. Frequent nightmares are not related to underlying psychopathology in most children and in some "creative" adults. However, recurrent nightmares are the most defining symptom of post-traumatic stress disorder and may be associated with other psychiatric illnesses. Night terrors are arousal disorders that occur most often in children and usually occur early in the sleep period. Patients with rapid-eye-movement behavior disorder often present with nocturnal injury resulting from the acting out of dreams. Dream disorders may respond to medication, but behavioral treatment approaches have shown excellent results, particularly in patients with post-traumatic stress disorder and recurrent nightmares.  (+info)

The use of dreams in psychotherapy: a survey of psychotherapists in private practice. (4/147)

Since the publication of Sigmund Freud's The Interpretation of Dreams, dream interpretation has been a standard technique often used in psychotherapy. However, empirical studies about the frequency of working on dreams in therapy are lacking. The present study elicited, via a self-developed questionnaire, various aspects of work on dreams applied by psychotherapists in private practice. The findings indicate that dreams were often used in therapy, especially in psychoanalysis. In addition, a significant relationship was found between the frequency of the therapists' working on their own dreams and frequency of work on dreams in therapy. Because work on dreams was rated as beneficial for the clients, further studies investigating the effectiveness and the process of working on dreams will be of interest.  (+info)

Rapid eye movements during paradoxical sleep in patients with cerebrovascular disease. (5/147)

Rapid eye movements that occur during paradoxical sleep are generated from the brainstem and are modulated by cerebral hemispheres. In an attempt to establish the participation of cerebral hemispheres on rapid eye movements, we carried out a quantitative study of eye movements density in patients bearing hemispheres vascular lesions. The polysomnographic recordings of 24 patients were compared to those of 24 healthy volunteers. Density of rapid eye movements was defined as the percentage of eye movements during the respective time of paradoxical sleep. Based on the present results, we concluded that: stroke patients with hemispheric lesions displayed increased density of rapid eye movements; there was no difference on the density of rapid eye movements according to the hemispheric lesion; higher density of rapid eye movements was observed in patients with anterior hemispheric lesion.  (+info)

Functional neuroimaging of normal human sleep by positron emission tomography. (6/147)

Functional neuroimaging using positron emission tomography has recently yielded original data on the functional neuroanatomy of human sleep. This paper attempts to describe the possibilities and limitations of the technique and clarify its usefulness in sleep research. A short overview of the methods of acquisition and statistical analysis (statistical parametric mapping, SPM) is presented before the results of PET sleep studies are reviewed. The discussion attempts to integrate the functional neuroimaging data into the body of knowledge already acquired on sleep in animals and humans using various other techniques (intracellular recordings, in situ neurophysiology, lesional and pharmacological trials, scalp EEG recordings, behavioural or psychological description). The published PET data describe a very reproducible functional neuroanatomy in sleep. The core characteristics of this 'canonical' sleep may be summarized as follows. In slow-wave sleep, most deactivated areas are located in the dorsal pons and mesencephalon, cerebellum, thalami, basal ganglia, basal forebrain/hypothalamus, prefrontal cortex, anterior cingulate cortex, precuneus and in the mesial aspect of the temporal lobe. During rapid-eye movement sleep, significant activations were found in the pontine tegmentum, thalamic nuclei, limbic areas (amygdaloid complexes, hippocampal formation, anterior cingulate cortex) and in the posterior cortices (temporo-occipital areas). In contrast, the dorso-lateral prefrontal cortex, parietal cortex, as well as the posterior cingulate cortex and precuneus, were the least active brain regions. These preliminary studies open up a whole field in sleep research. More detailed explorations of sleep in humans are now accessible to experimental challenges using PET and other neuroimaging techniques. These new methods will contribute to a better understanding of sleep functions.  (+info)

Replaying the game: hypnagogic images in normals and amnesics. (7/147)

Participants playing the computer game Tetris reported intrusive, stereotypical, visual images of the game at sleep onset. Three amnesic patients with extensive bilateral medial temporal lobe damage produced similar hypnagogic reports despite being unable to recall playing the game, suggesting that such imagery may arise without important contribution from the declarative memory system. In addition, control participants reported images from previously played versions of the game, demonstrating that remote memories can influence the images from recent waking experience.  (+info)

Is there a dissociative process in sleepwalking and night terrors? (8/147)

The enduring and contentious hypothesis that sleepwalking and night terrors are symptomatic of a protective dissociative mechanism is examined. This is mobilised when intolerable impulses, feelings and memories escape, within sleep, the diminished control of mental defence mechanisms. They then erupt but in a limited motoric or affective form with restricted awareness and subsequent amnesia for the event. It has also been suggested that such processes are more likely when the patient has a history of major psychological trauma. In a group of 22 adult patients, referred to a tertiary sleep disorders service with possible sleepwalking/night terrors, diagnosis was confirmed both clinically and polysomnographically, and only six patients had a history of such trauma. More commonly these described sleepwalking/night terrors are associated with vivid dream-like experiences or behaviour related to flight from attack. Two such cases, suggestive of a dissociative process, are described in more detail. The results of this study are presented largely on account of the negative findings. Scores on the dissociation questionnaire (DIS-Q) were normal, although generally higher in the small "trauma" subgroup. These were similar to scores characterising individuals with post-traumatic stress disorder. This "trauma" group also scored particularly highly on the anxiety, phobic, and depression scales of the Crown-Crisp experiential index. In contrast the "no trauma" group scored more specifically highly on the anxiety scale, along with major trends to high depression and hysteria scale scores. Two cases are presented which illustrate exceptional occurrence of later onset of sleepwalking/night terrors with accompanying post-traumatic symptoms during wakefulness. It is concluded that a history of major psychological trauma exists in only a minority of adult patients presenting with sleepwalking/night terror syndrome. In this subgroup trauma appears to dictate the subsequent content of the attacks. However, the symptoms express themselves within the form of the sleepwalking/night terror syndrome rather than as rapid eye movement sleep related nightmares. The main group of subjects with the syndrome and with no history of major psychological trauma show no clinical or DIS-Q evidence of dissociation during wakefulness. The proposition that, within the character structure of this group, the mechanism still operates but exclusively within sleep remains a possibility.  (+info)

There is a popular misconception out there about what causes repetitive nightmares. Most people seem to think that frequent nightmares are caused by some sort of emotional trauma or haunted past. But that is not really the case.. Certainly there is a class of nightmare sufferers who have experienced trauma and their nightmares are clearly linked to that trauma. But there is another class of sufferers who do not fit the stereotype. There are many people who experience frequent nightmares who have no special histories of trauma -emotional or otherwise. So we need to look at other potential causative factors. In my 2008 book on nightmares (McNamara, P. (2008). Nightmares: The science and solution of those frightening visions during sleep. Westport, CT: Praeger Perspectives ), I suggested that one overlooked factor was the balance between REM and NREM sleep amounts the individual experiences on a nightly basis. The normal balance between REM and slow wave NREM sleep (SWS) was modeled by Borbély and ...
É altamente improvável que as criaturas, chamadas Nightmare Scions, são realmente uma descendência do próprio Nightmare, algumas pessoas dizem que os Nightmare Scions são uma raça completamente distinta da dos Nightmares, outros dizem que eles são da mesma raça, porém apenas mais fracos devido a algum tipo de doença demoníaca ou lesões em virtude de batalhas sangrentas. Uma teoria muito comum é de que os Nightmare Scions são apenas protótipos de um Nightmare real, assim como essa teoria, outra afirma que os Nightmares vêm à existência através do mesmo processo. Ainda não se sabe se os Nightmare Scions poderão um dia se tornar verdadeiros Nightmares, pelo envelhecimento ou através de acumulo de poder. Eles são normalmente encontrados na companhia de Nightmares e parecem se relacionar bem uns com os outros. O que falta em poder bruto para o Nightmare Scion, ele compensa com maldade, sendo extremamente frio e cruel, ele adora perseguir seus inimigos mais fracos através das ...
Nightmares tend to occur less often in a sleep laboratory. To test this, twelve PTSD-inpatients suffering from posttraumatic nightmares kept a diary and filled out a questionnaire considering their sleep and nightmares. Polysomnographic sleep-data were recorded in the clinic for two consecutive 24-hour periods. Significantly fewer than expected nightmares were ... read more recorded with polysomnography. The short duration questionnaire correlated very highly with the diary and seems to be the method of choice for assessing nightmare frequency. Therefore the SLEEP-50 questionnaire, designed to detect sleep disorders as listed in the DSM-IV-TR, was evaluated in a sample of 377 college students, 246 sleep patients, 32 nightmare sufferers, and 44 healthy volunteers. The internal consistency was high; test-retest correlations were good, and the factor-structure closely matched the designed structure. Sensitivity/specificity scores were promising for all sleep disorders; the agreement between all ...
Dreaming is a powerful process. The body goes into a resting state. The brain uses the downtime to percolate on life happenings. It sorts through unfinished business. And it runs scenarios of possible outcomes. I believe the mind predicts the future all the time. The key is to remember the dreams.. Mary Arrchie Theatre presents GEOGRAPHY OF A HORSE DREAMER. Cody has a special talent. He predicts the outcome of horse races. He dreams about the winning horse. Because of his ability, he has been nabbed from his Wyoming life and held captive in a seedy motel. Gamblers are cashing in on his giftedness. When a losing streak threatens Codys continued existence, his captors encourage him to shift to dogs. And thats when the shift really hits the fan.

Dreamers Guide. What is a dream?. Dreams are messages from the subconscious mind that reflect thoughts and attitudes about the previous day. They reveal moods and emotions. We all dream, even though we may not remember our dreams. By age 60, we have spent about 20 years sleeping, and more than two and a half years dreaming. Dreaming is a way to assimilate the input, stimuli, thoughts and attitudes experienced during the day. It allows the subconscious and conscious minds to communicate through images. Lack of sleep (and the resulting assimilation) makes many of us irritable. In fact, sleep research shows that individuals deprived of sleep may hallucinate as a way for the mind to assimilate information. Types of Dreams. Nightmares reflect a state of fear in the dreamers waking life. The dreamer usually feels out of control and is having difficulty directing his life. Fears may have to do with unfulfilled desires. Children may absorb the fears of adults in their lives. A small child may ...
When it comes to nightmares, it seems only logical that the recall rate would be high, since you usually wake up right from the middle of the dream. Plus, nightmares tend to haunt you and remain in your memory for a long time, driving you to put it down in some manner. Going back to the example of Frankenstein, a journal-entry by Mary Shelly describes haunting nature of her nightmare and how it drove her to write the book.. She says, When I placed my head upon the pillow I did not sleep, nor could I be said to think. My imagination, unbidden, possessed and guided me, gifting the successive images that arose in my mind with a vividness far beyond the usual bounds of reverie, giving us an idea of the intensity with which her nightmare troubled her.. The high recall rate of nightmares gives a dream-like quality to your waking life, forcing you to think in an out-of-the-box and creative way.. ...

There is no doubt that they penetrate abundantly into the dream, that they utilize the dream content to obtrude themselves upon consciousness even during the night; indeed, they occasionally even dominate the dream content, and impel it to continue the work of the day; it is also certain that the day remnants may just as well have any other character as that of wishes; but it is highly instructive and even decisive for the theory of wish-fulfillment to see what conditions they must comply with in order to be received into http://startso11.info/www.eureko-jatowiem.pl.html the dream..

While we all have dreams and fears we like to think of as our very own, it turns out that when it comes to nightmares, we have a lot of common ground.. In a new study, published in the February issue of the journal Sleep [PDF], researchers analyzed 253 nightmares and 431 bad dreams reported by 331 participants, and were able to categorize the vast majority of them as fitting into 11 distinct categories. (The difference between nightmares and bad dreams is that nightmares wake you up.). While some sleep studies ask participants to classify their dreams based on an existing list of categories, these researchers let people keep free-flowing dream journals and then categorized them later based on the content.. A sample dream journal entry, from the press release:. Im in a closet. A strip of white cloth is forcing me to crouch. Instead of clothes hanging, there are large and grotesquely shaped stuffed animals like cats and dogs with grimacing teeth and bulging eyes. Theyre hanging and wiggling ...
As noted, Bully Ray crashed Tommy Dreamers House of Hardcore 3 event last night and challenged him to an Old School Street Fight at a December 30th TNA One Night Only Old School pay-per-view taping in the same building, the Mid-Hudson Civic Center in Poughkeepsie, New York.. The angle was put together as a way to cross promote TNAs pay-per-view taping with the idea that TNA will promote Dreamers House of Hardcore and help raise its profile by acknowledging it while TNA gets the chance to promote their pay-per-view locally with an outside the box idea. Dreamer has not signed a deal with TNA but will be working the pay-per-view taping against Ray. The angle is just an example of TNA trying more unique and creative ways to promote their events heading into 2014.. This will be TNAs first pay-per-view in New York State.

The inclusion and exclusion criteria are assessed during a telephone interview. If the participants meet the criteria, they are randomly assigned to two intervention groups or an active control group. In the first session the participants who suffer from chronic nightmares are interviewed using the Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-IV (SCID-I and -II) to determine the clinical diagnosis; in addition, they are given questionnaires and record sheets to obtain baseline data. They are asked to record their nightmares in a dream diary up until the next session four weeks later. At that session they learn one of three interventions to reduce nightmares. The first group receives imagery rehearsal treatment in which participants learn to consciously alter the contents of their nightmares and then to visualize the new set of images. The second group is subjected to confrontation treatment in which they are instructed to confront their nightmares until habituation. The third group, the ...

Probably not. Fever dreams are essentially turbo-charged nightmares. While the occasional nightmare could be caused by nothing more exotic than an overly spicy meal, recurrent nightmares are probably caused by something else. If youve got some stuff you need to deal with and try to avoid facing it all day, it could very well bubble up during REM. And your dream machine might not be able to handle the bubbling. Some specialists believe that when your dreams are overwhelmed by intense emotions and cant convert them into safe long-term memories, they start cracking up and turning into nightmares [source: McNamara].. So fever dreams are probably just the result of your dreams having a breakdown under pressure from overheating. The only thing theyre telling you is what the rest of your body is saying - slow down, relax, rest, eat well. If you dont, your febrile amygdala is going to continue to plague you with visions of headless cyborgs, geysers of blood, warped space-time, murder, dismemberment ...

I dreamed I was lying on my stomach and a friend of mine who I might have crush on came next to me. We were in a corner of a room. He kissed me on the ear. The next thing in the dream was us sitting on a sofa in the living room (mine??) talking, and Id assume stuff happened in between that I did not actually dream. He was offering to give me a lot of things, I dont know what exactly for, something like, leave my boyfriend and run away with him. He offered things like spending his savings on me, and when I didnt give an answer, neither yes nor no, he offered more. I didnt speak, just cried. I knew what was the right thing to do, but I didnt want to commit myself. Out of the parlor? Came the chair of my department and I thought, oh great, now Im in trouble. (the chair knows of my boyfriend, and hes met him. But instead, he talked to my friend as if they knew each other and asked, were you the one that did this (made her cry)? When he nodded, the chair said, then its your responsibility ...
A double-blind study revealed that participants who took a daily 250mg B6 supplement reported a significant increase in dream content - as measured in dream vividness, bizarreness, emotionality and color. One of the roles of vitamin B6 is to convert the essential amino acid tryptophan into serotonin and niacin. This helps the body regulate appetite, sleep patterns and mood. Low levels of tryptophan are also linked with poor dream recall.. When youre ready to begin the dream-intensity challenge, take your vitamin B6 supplement and then fuel the fire with plenty of tryptophan-rich foods such as:. ...
The latest series to be uploaded into the Sleep and Dream Database (SDDb) is the biggest yet: the Brianna Journal 1984-2016, 2,448 dream reports from a woman who kept a journal fairly consistently for 32 years. This series offers an amazing opportunity to observe in unusually close detail the emotional contours of an individuals life as she makes her way through a challenging and often dangerous world.. Brianna (not her real name) shared these dreams with me and Deirdre Barrett last year, which we initially studied for a presentation at the 2016 conference of the International Association for the Study of Dreams. Using the word search functions of the SDDb, I performed a blind analysis on three subsets of Briannas dream journals, meaning I 1) tabulated the frequencies of word usage for several categories of dream content, 2) compared her frequencies with baseline averages for each category, and 3) made inferences, based on nothing other than her dream patterns, about her concerns and ...
The last few weeks weve found ourselves lost. Completely lost. But the thing is we were doing everything right. We were working on the business, the web pages, the strategy. We met with a few clients to square things away for their upcoming weddings. But it was all wrong.. A few Saturdays ago, we were eating lunch at a little hamburger joint in town. We were laughing and having a great lunch when out of nowhere the conversation took a steep decline. I started talking about feeling lost in all of this (the business), how I didnt know what I was doing or what I was doing it for. But I just kept on doing it because well, wasnt that the right thing to do? We were taught as children that persistence is what brings success. I do not deny this truth, but persistence on treadmill is not the same as persistence on a road. Simply put - we were moving, but going nowhere.. We started backtracking the last month. Wed both been working very hard but when we started talking about we realized that we may ...
Dreams of anxiety and fear. Why not merge this with nightmares? Because dreams can explore the mood of fear without being nightmares. Some dreams even fearlessly analyze fear by showing you other people who represent your fears--letting you observe how you panic, as a fear-free lesson!. Also, Gestalt and Jungians and Freudians are wrong about one thing: not every figure and scene and mood in a dream is about you. Dreams are observant; they can dispassionately show you how others fear something you dont. Including, sometimes, how they fear you.. In short, some dreams are all about fears--discussing them or recommending actions--without being scary at all. My dreams seem to find my more unreasonable fears quite comical--even my worst nightmares are often screamingly funny. Its only the dream-self, in fears grip, who cant see the absurdity. Which is, of course, often the point.. RELATED TOPICS: nightmares of course - courage - anger - hatred - grief and tears - guilt - embarrassment and ...

If the dreamer has an abortion in the dream, or goes to the clinic where the abortion is about to take place, or is instrumental in bringing about (or contemplating bringing about) the demise or death of the child/fetus (some dreamers see themselves trying to flush a fetus or young baby down the toilet) and the dream ends just before the actual abortion/murder or flushing takes place, it may signify that the dreamer is on the verge of destroying or sabotaging the project, or whatever it is that he or she is bringing into being. Hence it may be of importance for the dreamer (in real life) to consider what it is that is threatening to come to an end in his or her life, in order to decide whether it is perhaps worth keeping ...

Democrats on the Hill tanked the Dream Act Bill this week. They had promised to work towards drafting a bill which would legalize the children of illegals. This was a campaign promise by the Dems, based on one of their major voting constituencies.

Sleeping: Dreams and Nightmares a presentation mainly on sleeping. and chemicals... Dreams, nightmares, and night terrors are all caused by different chemicals being released while youre sleeping. The difference between a nightmare and a night terror is this: Basically, a nightmare is just a really bad dream. A dream, in which, you have strong negative feelings taking place, whether it may be Curiosity, anxiety, or simply feeling that youre scared. Night terrors are a little different. During a night terror, the individual wakes up knowing that they have been screaming (he/she wakes up screaming) and sometimes the individual may even act out the nightmares physically (violent sleep walking.) Night terrors usually only occur within children but it is not exempt to adults. The way you fall asleep is through the activation of the neurotransmitter gamma-aminobutyric acid, or GABA. Various chemicals can actually induce nightmares in a person. One common substance is alcohol. Excessive ...
No, your eyes do not deceive you. This is real, actual, new Hippo Campus. It has been ages since the release of 2018s Bambi. The world has changed two or three times over since Demos I & II arrived in 2019. Unsurprisingly, Hippo Campus has changed with it. Good Dog, Bad Dream - coming August 6th - is a bold new EP that pushes the boundaries of what the Minneapolis indie pop group has been working on since forming back in 2013.. Of course, for fans who have been along for the journey, the progression might not be all that shocking. The lithe guitar pop of early releases like Bashful Creatures gave way to a more intricate songwriting approach on Landmark, which later ceded ground to electronics and experimentation on Bambi. But Good Dod, Bad Dream is a different animal entirely: a live wire of five occasionally absurd, weirdly heartfelt songs that routinely rival even the most high energy entries in the bands repertoire.. Lead single Bad Dream Baby manages to string together Jakes references ...

Aware that his Interpretation of Dreams was a long and difficult book, Freud decided that he must offer a version that would be briefer and easier to follow.On Dreams was the result. He succeeded admirably: the theory of the dream as distorted wish fulfillment is there, as are, in full deployment, the mechanisms of the dream work. Without doubt, Freud was always his own best popularizer.

The young people affected by DACA are called Dreamers, and their fate is uncertain. As they have increasing reason to worry that they may be soon forced out of the country, most keep secret their identities as Dreamers.. Some Dreamers, however, have spoken out with the hope that sharing their stories will dispel the myths surrounding the immigration issue. Isabel Johnston, a first-year law student, is one such Dreamer.. Johnstons father was the first in her immediate family to travel from Peru to the states. After eight months apart, the rest of the family flew in to join him.. Johnston, who was six at the time, recalls, There was this long hallway, and my dads at the end of it, and Im with my mom and my siblings. He gets down on one knee and opens his arms for us to run into them.. I looked up to my mom, because I didnt know who he was. My dad [had been] a big guy. I thought it was my uncle who looks like my dad but is much thinner. My dad had been working three jobs, sleeping two hours, ...

The Revs drum kit. This years been a tough one for Avenged Sevenfold. It started off in mourning, following the overdose death of drummer Jimmy The Rev Sullivan in late December. Avenged were 98-percent done writing their new record when they lost The Rev, but decided to finish the LP, as a final tribute to their fallen brother. They called on Dream Theaters Mike Portnoy to handle the kit, and the result is an Avenged Sevenfold record thats listenable.. Instead of talking about partying and pounding poon, Avenged has matured. Theyve had to. The Revs death has changed the band irrevocably, and this new record is a testament to that growth theyve experienced. The record is epic, and Portnoys contributions are nothing short of intimidating.. Over the weekend, Avenged released the uncensored version of the video for Nightmare, the albums opening track. It sounds like Metallica meets Guns N Roses, with Behemoth-like guitar riffing and some pensive lyricism. The bands disc, Nightmare, ...

Type 1 - Type 1 is the more common - in which the dreamer seems to wake up, but not necessarily in realistic surroundings (i.e. not in their own bedroom) and a pre-lucid dream may continue. More commonly, dreamers will believe they have awakened, and then either wake up for real in their own bed or fall back asleep in the dream. A common false awakening is a late for work scenario. A person may wake up in a typical bedroom room, with most things looking normal, and realize they overslept and are late for work or school - clocks, if found in the dream, will show time indicating that fact. The resulting panic is often strong enough wake the person up for real (much like from a nightmare). Another common Type 1 example of false awakening can result in bedwetting - in this scenario the dreamer has false awakened and (while in the state of dream) has performed all the traditional behaviours that precede urinating -including arising from bed and going into the bathroom, while still asleep and ...

The ARAS archive is especially useful to analytical psychologists and psychotherapists or anybody interested in amplifying images that emerge in dreams. The process begins when one is struck by a particular image, wondering why that particular image appeared and what it means. We do know that each image is carefully chosen by the psyche as a means of communicating specific information about the dreamers state of development and attitude. One could say that the image is a key with the potential to unlock a particular door leading to greater knowledge or consciousness about the dreamer. ARAS gives the analyst or the dreamer a means of discerning which door the key fits. What is revealed through the study of the many visual examples of the images and their cultural, historical and psychological amplifications helps to enlarge our understanding of the symbolic image. And it is our relationship to the symbol that effects the deep change or transformation of our being.32 ...
Introduction. Sleep and dreams have been a target for all kinds of myths and mystic explanations from remote antiquity to present times. Aristotle discovered that vertebrates and some invertebrate animals do sleep and was convinced that at least mammals and birds dream, a point of view that was shared in the nineteenth century by Darwin. Aristotle proved that bees sleep, a fact that was rediscovered in 1980. He also discovered eye, lip, face and limb movements during dreaming and knew very well that such movements are related to dream content. In the nineteenth century several clinicians and physiologists confirmed the Aristotelian discoveries but unfortu-nately all that knowledge remained buried. Aserinsky and Kleitman (1), in 1953, started a new wave of discoveries that, in addition to confirming Aristotle, led to many recent advances as to fine behavioral and electrophysiological manifestations of sleep and dreaming, to the neural systems responsible for their generation, and to some cellular ...
The dogs and I are wrapped in the dark cocoon of early morning. My dreams have vanished. Their only reminder is the dull ache in my jaw from clenching through the night. I am filled with a juxtaposition of calm and anger and try to ferret the dreams content. I wonder about the owl in the willow and the hawk in the honey locust tree, their small heads tucked into the down of their breast, both secreted in the tangle of branches weathering the first real storm of the season. The owls foraging is completed for the evening, but moments from now, the hawk will pounce on the slight scurrying under the snow and bring its find to the tree and tear the small body apart. The world outside my window slowly emerges in a white shroud. Plants that have survived the first frosts, are surely dead. I will pull their limp bodies from the terra-cotta pots later today. The small dog is coiled into a tight knot next to me licking his left fore paw. The big dog readjusts her old bones on her pillow. I hear my ...
George Catlins comments on nightmares and the associated night terrors actually describes sleep apnea: . . . no person on earth who has waked from a fit of the nightmare will dispute the fact that when consciousness came, he found his mouth and throat wide open, and parched with dryness. . . Every attack of the nightmare, I proclaim, is the beginning of death!. . .Though the spasm lasted but a minute. . . death would have been the consequence. . . how awful to be so near death, and so often!. It is very evident that the back of the head should never be allowed, in sleep, to fall to a level with the spine; but should be supported by a small pillow, to elevate it a little, without raising the shoulders or bending the back, which should always be kept straight. . . When you lay your head upon a pillow, advance it a little forward, so as to imagine yourself in a gallery of a theater looking into the pit.. He continues: Lying on the back is thought by many to be an unhealthy practice; and a ...

My son of 3 years will not go to bed because he has nightmares. Once he has, he says are dangerous animals to bed. How he does while I do not know. I try to explain to him that there are no dangerous animals. I also try to distract him with fun things. I am very long time to get him to sleep. Then he woke in the night and takes another long before he sleeps. You have to stay with him until he falls asleep again, but its so tiring for us. I understand that sometimes works melatonin for sleep, but not sleep. It is therefore pointless to try I guess. Do you maybe have an idea what can I could try? pediatrician. Apparently there is your son talk of fears that keep him awake at night and / or his bad dreams delivery. To solve the problem, have medicines indeed pointless. In any case it is important to give him as much as possible during the day feel safe. It may be that this is a temporary problem. But it can also cause a persistent existence.. read more ...

I was wondering if anyone else has experienced night terrors when taking this medication. Ive taken this medication for HSV-2, and every time I start the medication, I experience night terrors all night long. Its not like I have one bad dream and go right back to sleep; instead, I fall back asleep and have another one right away. It makes me afraid to go to bed, or to take the medication. These dreams are so real to me, but I havent seen much about dreaming. Could this be categorized under hallucinations? Should I call my doctor to see about changing meds? Also, are there any other medications that could replace the Valtrex that dont cause this symptom ...
1: Larry. Larry Kettelkamp slipped out of his body and dove into dreamspace. There was no down and no up in dreamspace, only focus. He did not consciously choose the focus. The rational mind could focus only on itself. Those dreams-his personal dreams-were good and necessary, but they were for other nights.. Tonight, this night…was for war.. Slowly dreamspace coalesced into light and darkness. Tiny glints like stars lay in every direction. Each glint was a dreamer. Each dreamer lay at the center of an aura that was a dream. Each dream was a color: red for warm comfort; orange for pleasant wanderings; yellow for joyful exuberance; green for study and discovery; blue for anxiety, shame, and sadness; indigo for fury; violet for terror. What had been indistinct clouds grew sharper. Larry closed his rational eyes. He knew his deeper mind was choosing. He felt the decision when it was made, as the silent emergence of up, down, time, and motion.. Larry opened his rational eyes, and saw the nightmare ...

Why do PTSD nightmares happen?. Scientists have been studying dreams for years, but they still dont fully understand how or why we dream.. Matthew Walker, a psychology researcher at the University of California, Berkeley, has one theory. Walker found that during rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, the chemistry of the brain actually changes. Levels of norepinephrine - a kind of adrenaline - drop out completely. REM sleep is the only time of day when this happens. In people not living with PTSD, REM sleep is kind of like therapy; its an adrenaline-free environment where the brain can process its memories while stripping away the emotional edges.. Walkers theory suggests that in people with PTSD, REM sleep is broken. The adrenaline doesnt go away like its supposed to. The brain cant process tough memories, so it just cycles through them, again and again. This theory is being put to the test: The VA is currently running several clinical trials on prazosin, a drug that lowers sensitivity to ...
Infographic. Given all these possibilities, can dreams really reveal our deepest secrets?. Dreams can provide useful insights into our lives, but whether you learn from Hollywood movies or favorite novels, there is no research that suggests that dreams can reveal our inner life.. Theres really no research to support this idea, said Deirdre Barrett, a psychologist and dream researcher at Harvard Medical School. Dreams are not symbolic. She points out that neither the dictionary nor the dreamer can tell you what dreams really mean.. For a long time, humans have tried to find meaning in dreams. The ancient Mesopotamias and the ancient Egyptians saw dreams as a message from God. The ancient Greeks and Romans used them to predict the future. But the belief that the symbols of dreams hide the true secrets of our hearts actually originated in the 19th century by the psychologist Sigmund Freud. Dreams, he argues, are a kind of fulfillment that reveals our deeply suppressed desires.. Since Freud, the ...
The phase can be entered before, during and after sleep (for more information on this see deferred, direct, indirect and dream consciousness methods in Michael Radugas guidebook). The hardest way to enter the phase is before sleep. If you are going to enter the phase during sleep, by becoming lucid in a dream, then you better start recording your nightly adventures in a journal in order to improve dream recall, learn to recognise dream cues, and perform reality checks during the day. Ask yourself the question Am I dreaming? and learn to answer it effectively. Can you remember what happened an hour ago? Do you remember getting up and having breakfast in the morning? How did you get to where you are? Can you levitate off the ground? Look at something, look away and then look back at it? Is it still the same or has it mysteriously changed? Perhaps its now missing! Look at your hands. Do they look normal? A way to check reality which is highly recommended by Raduga is to perform the ...

I had had a grand mal seizure.
