Talking during sleep

There are four principal brain waves each associated with a different state of awareness or level of consciousness:

BETA - The fastest brainwave that is related to external activities. This is the predominant pattern emitted during normal wakeful states. At this level the mind functions through the five physical senses and is bound by time and space. This level is predominately left-brain.

ALPHA - This frequency is related to a relaxed state of mind when one is free from the worries and frustrations of the physical world. The average person only produces this brainwave during sleep, while dreaming or during moments of deep creative thought. It is often called REM sleep and is predominant when dreaming.

THETA - These waves are profusely emitted during sleep. Theta waves are manifested during deep states of meditation, intense creativity, ecstasy and receptivity to extrasensory perception. Control of autonomic functions such as heartbeat, digestion, bleeding, pain etc. is possible while conscious at this frequency.

DELTA - The slowest brainwave. It is associated with deep sleep, 'Samadhi' or 'Cosmic Consciousness'. To become consciously aware at this level one has to transcend the mind which leads to the ultimate goal of mankind; 'Realisation of the True Self.'

ADHD and Sleep Disorders

Recently there has been a great deal of media attention on sleep problems in people with ADHD. Sleep problems are rampant in people who have ADHD. However, the big question is whether they are secondary to having ADHD or whether sleep disorders are another cause of ADHD. by Jay D. Tarnow, M.D.
