Dreaming and Brain Disorders
All humans, as well as other mammals and birds, experience a stage of sleeping known as rapid eye movement sleep (REM). As the name suggests, your eyes move in a quick, random motion. During this stage some people suffer from REM sleep disorder, which leads them to act out their dreams through talking, shouting, hitting and other physical motions, according to the National Sleep Foundation. The research discovered that about 80 percent of people who suffer from a REM disorder will go on to develop a neurodegenerative disorder, such as Parkinson's.
