Question: As I understand it, sleeping in late does not make up for missed REM sleep earlier in the night. Has this theory changed since I attended Sleep and Dreams?
Tex HainesClass of 1970Hey Tex,Good to hear from a fellow S&D alum! It never ceases to amaze me the number of generations that have gone through Dr. Dement’s course over the years.As for your question, can you elaborate on what you mean by “missed REM sleep earlier in the night”? Are you referring to situations where REM periods might not be progressed to due to interrupted sleep?Kevin
