Sleepwalking Facts

sleepwalking | New Jersey Pediatric Neuroscience Institute

Sleepwalking, impacting around 4% of adults, is a unique phenomenon where individuals engage in complex activities while asleep, only to wake with no memory of the events. This intriguing behavior occurs during non-REM sleep, a phase when the body is at rest, yet the brain remains active. Though the causes are not fully understood, factors like genetics, sleep deprivation, and specific medications may play a role in these nocturnal adventures. 🌙💤 #SleepwalkingFacts #NocturnalMysteries #SleepScience
