2012-02-20 – REM Pattern

REM Sleep Pattern
Another one slipped by. Now that I finally have the playlist functionality implemented, I need to rework the REM detection algorithm in light of all the dreams I have recorded since I wrote the first version.

Fourteen very solid blinks can be seen in the minute above taken from a dream that lasted over ten minutes. A lot of the blinks drop below the 800 line inside of the blink, which is what is throwing the algorithm off. This can be seen in blinks 5, 6, 7 and 9.

REM Sleep with Calea Zacatechichi
Around six rapid eye movements can be seen after the vibrations. This is one of only two 30-second REM phases recorded during the night.

Preparation: added boiling water to a cup with a teaspoon of Calea leaves and let it soak until cool.

I have had great success with the tea inducing long, vivid and lucid dreams in the past, so I will have to try again soon.

TI Chronos EZ430 Dream Alarm
The track played and either woke me up, or I had a false awakening. Remembered my dreams very well (after beeing woken up during the REM period).

Rapid Eye Movement - Blinking in a Dream
I had a relatively long dream with clearly visible eye movements, but the rate of blinking was too fast and was not detected. 14 blinks can be seen in the minute featured above.

Walkabout
Upon returning to civilization after 2 months in the Outback and travelling for 48 hours without sleep a total of 109 minutes of REM were recorded with the longest dream lasting 52 minutes and taking the new high score. The track played repeatedly, but the effect went unnoticed in the dreams, save for the brief interruption of blinking seen at the end of the minute above. Just before waking up a dream of 22 minutes was recorded and recalled upon awaking.

2011-10-26 – Faint REM

Weak Rapid Eye Movement
The REM was too faint again and snuck past the algorithm this time. Around 16 blinks can be seen in the featured minute.
