  • A questionnaire was developed to assess adult recall for a range of transpersonal experiences throughout childhood and adolescence (mystical experience, out-of-body experience, lucid dreams, archetypal dreams, ESP), as well as nightmares and night terrors as indicators of more conflicted, negative states [13].
  • To consider the relationships among Type A-B behavior, gender, and specific types of nightmares, 780 university undergraduates were tested with Glass' version of the Jenkins Activity Survey and the Spadafora and Hunt Dream Types Survey which included the critical nightmares (fantastic nightmares, posttraumatic nightmares, and night terrors) [14].
  • The N1, N2, and P3 AEP components were prolonged in latency in narcoleptic patients as compared to controls, while sleep terror patients did not differ from controls [15].
