During REM sleep, our eyes move rapidly. It is the time when we are most relaxed. Paradoxically, heart rate and breathing speed up and blood pressure and sexual arousal increase. During this phase we dream and capture lots of information from our environment due to increased brain activity: sometimes more than when we are awake. The rest of the body, however, is paralysed because the brainstem blocks our motor neurons. The body probably uses this mechanism to stop us carrying out what we’re doing in our dreams.
