 REM Behavior Disorder (RBD) - SleepChannel
It is, however, known to occur during rapid eye movement sleep, which is characterized by brain activity patterns that resemble wakefulness and which has been documented with polysomnography and other sleep tests.
The basic mechanism for REM sleep paralysis is found in the brainstem, the part of the brain that connects the spinal chord to the cerebral hemispheres and that consists of the pons, midbrain, and the medulla oblongata.
Rapid eye movement behavior disorder is characterized by significant submental (under the chin) and limb muscle tone.

 eMedicine - EEG Atlas: Normal Sleep EEG - Rapid Eye Movement Sleep : Article by Selim R Benbadis, MD
REM sleep normally is not seen on routine EEGs, because the normal latency to REM sleep (100 min) is well beyond the duration of routine EEG recordings (approximately 20-30 min).
The appearance of REM sleep during a routine EEG is referred to as sleep-onset REM period (SOREMP) and is considered an abnormality.
In addition to rapid eye movements, this rapid eye movement sleep record is characterized by brief fragments of alpha rhythm (first half) and central saw tooth waves (second half).

Sleep, rapid eye movement: REM sleep is the portion of sleep when there are rapid eye movements (REMs).
REM sleep is characterized by a number of other features including rapid, low-voltage brain waves detectable on the electroencephalographic (EEG) recording, irregular breathing and heart rate and involuntary muscle jerks.
During NREM, the brain waves on the EEG are typically slow and of high voltage, the breathing and heart rate are slow and regular, the blood pressure is low, and the sleeper is relatively still.

There are two states of sleep: non-rapid eye movement (NREM) sleep and rapid eye movement (REM) sleep.
REM sleep is associated with dreaming and paralysis of body muscles (except for the eye and diaphragm muscles).

Rapid Eye Therapy (RET) is one of the most innovative and effective mind change tools available today.
Neurologically RET replicates the deep processing, ordering and discharging that we do naturally each night during the REM (rapid eye movement) stage of dreaming.

 REM (Rapid Eye Movement) Sleep
Initially, Aserinsky was intent on studying slow, rolling eye movements in infants while they slept in the hope he could uncover a relationship between eye activity and sleep depth.
The eye movement bursts seemed to be associated with a lack of body movement.
In order to investigate the possibility that these periods of rapid eye movement sleep were in fact related to dream, Aserinsky and Kleitman, and later Bill Dement awakened subjects in the midst of the REM periods.
