Nightmares/Night Terrors

Nightmares are frightening dreams that usually awaken the sleeper during REM sleep. Night terrors are characterized by sudden arousal from slow wave sleep with a piercing scream or cry, followed by manifestations of intense fear and a temporary inability to regain full consciousness. The person is usually inconsolable, and will not remember the event in the morning.
