≪Questions:A walk through the stages of sleep≫

  1. Fill in the blanks.

     Sleep may be the most effective things

that we do each and every day because it

(1)                       the health of our

(2)                  and our (3)                    .

And if we understand a little bit about

what sleep is, we may be able to improve

both the (4)                       and the

(5)                             of our sleep.  




  1. The following chart describes what non-REM sleep and REM sleep are. Fill in the blanks.

non-REM sleep

(a) It has 4 separate stages.

    Stage 1    awake / (1)              sleep

    Stage 2    (2)               sleep

    Stage 3/4  (3)                sleep

 

(b) In our light stages of non-REM sleep,

1. Our (4)                          (2 words)

    begins to decrease.

2. Our (5)                         (2 words)

    begins to drop.

3. Our electrical (6)                               

    (3 words) begins to slow down.

 

(c) In the stages 3 and 4 of our non-REM sleep,

     1. our brain erupts with huge

         powerful (7)                       

         (2 words).

     2. our body’s (8)                        

         (2 words) is recharged.

     3. our (9)                             (2 words)

         is overhauled.

And, stage 3 and 4 of our non-REM sleep help consolidate (10)                     and fixate them into neural architecture of the brain.





REM sleep

(a) We experience the most vivid and the

most hallucinogenic types of

(11)                                                  .

     1. The brain wave activity begins to

         (12)                         (2 words)

         again.

    2. We receive almost a form of

        (13)                                             

        (3 words).

    3. We receive a boost for

         (14)                        , in which we

         stitch information together so that

         we wake up with solutions to

         previously difficult problems

         that we were facing.

 

  1. Which of the following statements is not true?
  1. It usually takes about 90 minutes to complete one cycle between non-REM sleep and REM sleep.
  2. The ratio of non-REM to REM within the 90-minute cycles changes as we move across the night.
  3. In the first half of the night, our sleep mainly consists of REM sleep.  
  4. If you miss 25% of all of your sleep, it may mean you have missed 50 ~ 70% of all of your REM sleep.

≪Answers:A walk through the stages of sleep≫

  1. Fill in the blanks.

     Sleep may be the most effective things

that we do each and every day because it

(1)  resets   the health of our

(2)  brain   and our (3)  body   .

And if we understand a little bit about

what sleep is, we may be able to improve

both the (4)   quality    and the

(5)  quantity   of our sleep.  




  1. The following chart describes what non-REM sleep and REM sleep are. Fill in the blanks.

non-REM sleep

(a) It has 4 separate stages.

    Stage 1    awake / (1)  light   sleep

    Stage 2    (2)  light   sleep

    Stage 3/4  (3)  deep   sleep

 

(b) In our light stages of non-REM sleep,

1. Our (4) heart rate  (2 words)

    begins to decrease.

2. Our (5) body temperature  (2 words)

    begins to drop.

3. Our electrical (6) brain wave activity 

    (3 words) begins to slow down.

 

(c) In the stages 3 and 4 of our non-REM sleep,

     1. our brain erupts with huge

         powerful (7) brain waves 

         (2 words).

     2. our body’s (8)  immune system  

         (2 words) is recharged.

     3. our (9)  cardiovascular system  (2 words)

         is overhauled.

And, stage 3 and 4 of our non-REM sleep help consolidate (10)  memories   and fixate them into neural architecture of the brain.





REM sleep

(a) We experience the most vivid and the

most hallucinogenic types of

(11)    dreams     .

     1. The brain wave activity begins to

         (12) speed up  (2 words)

         again.

    2. We receive almost a form of

        (13)  emotional first aid      

        (3 words).

    3. We receive a boost for

         (14) creativity  , in which we

         stitch information together so that

         we wake up with solutions to

         previously difficult problems

         that we were facing.
