a split in consciousness, which allows some thoughts and behaviors to occur simultaneously with others.
a periodic, natural loss of consciousness — as distinct from unconsciousness resulting from a coma, general anesthesia, or hibernation.
our biological clock; regular bodily rhythms (for example, of temperature and wakefulness) that occur on a 24-hour cycle.
rapid eye movement sleep; a recurring sleep stage during which vivid dreams commonly occur. Also known as paradoxical sleep, because the muscles are relaxed (except for minor twitches) but other body systems are active.

a sleep disorder characterized by uncontrollable sleep attacks. The sufferer may lapse directly into REM sleep, often at inopportune times.
a sleep disorder characterized by temporary cessations of breathing during sleep and repeated momentary awakenings.

morphine and heroin; depress neural activity, temporarily lessening pain and anxiety.
drugs that excite neural activity and speed up body functions.
a stimulating and highly addictive psychoactive drug in tobacco.
a powerful and addictive stimulant produces temporarily increased alertness and euphoria.
drugs that stimulate neural activity, causing accelerated body functions and associated energy and mood changes.
a powerfully addictive drug that stimulates the central nervous system, with accelerated body functions and associated energy and mood changes; over time, appears to reduce baseline dopamine levels.
a synthetic stimulant and mild hallucinogen. Produces euphoria and social intimacy, but with short-term health risks and longer-term harm to serotonin-producing neurons and to mood and cognition.
psychedelic ("mind-manifesting") drugs, such as LSD, that distort perceptions and evoke sensory images in the absence of sensory input.
an altered state of consciousness reported after a close brush with death (such as cardiac arrest); often similar to drug-induced hallucinations.
