New research has found that people with severe sleep apnea have significantly less nightmares (21%) compared with over 2/3 of healthy people. The lead author of the study was quoted as saying that after years having a bad reputation, the results of this study makes the condition "a little sexier."
I don't get it. How is not dreaming related to being "sexy"? It's clear that when you have severe apneas, you can't stay in REM sleep (the dreaming stage) since your muscles are most relaxed. REM sleep is essential for memory consolidation and proper brain function.
