    myoclonic twitchies!!

    "if you love me, won't you let me know." - coldplay, violet hill

    this is an article i found on the net. written by hannah.. something. gomenasai! >.<
    pretty interesting. solves those annoying waker-uppers at night!!

    "You are sinking into your pillow, the first flickers of dreamlike peculiarities playing across the inside of your eyelids. Then, finding yourself sliding down a hill or falling in a hole, you thrash so
    suddenly you wake up. As does your sweetheart, whom you've kicked out of bed.

    "Myoclonic jerk," said the first sleep researcher I reached on the phone.

    "I beg your pardon!"

    "Not you," he said. "That twitch."

    But when I told him it only happens once, as I'm falling asleep, he changed his tune.

    "Oh, that's just a hypnic jerk." He gave me the name of another researcher. As jerks go, hypnic ones aren't annoying enough to get much attention. The second researcher gave me the name of a third researcher. The third researcher, Dr. Mark Mahowald, director of a sleep disorder center in Minneapolis, wasn't exactly fascinated with the subject, either.

    "As far as I know, we don't have a clue why that happens," he said casually. "I don't think we could come up with two reasons."

    There are, of course, theories, since theories rush in where angels fear to tread. .

    One is that hypnic jerks are a natural step in the body's transition from alertness to sleep. As you drift off, your body goes through some physiological changes to prepare for a few hours of restoration. Your breathing rate changes. Your temperature may change. And your muscle tone changes, too. Hypnic jerks, the theory goes, may just be a byproduct of that muscular transition.

    I like the second theory better, since it's more specific than the first: This theory says that, as you slide toward sleep, there's a point at which your muscles really let go. Your brain, which after all did evolve from a reptile brain, interprets this rush of relaxation data as a sure sign that you're falling down. And it tells your arms and legs to thrash around and keep you upright -- which, of course, you're not. So your misguided body slugs your sweetheart in the solar plexus.

    This explanation dovetails with the mental experience that accompanies many people's hypnic jerks -- the thrash is often accompanied by quick little dreams of falling. They're not exactly dreams, says Mahowald, although scholars are increasingly questioning the definition of dreaming.

    The traditional view is that true dreams only visit during REM (rapid eye-movement) sleep, later in the night. But a dopey, dozing-off brain gets its chuckles in the form of modest hallucinations or reveries. These pastimes are more closely related to daydreams than REM dreams. Anyway, Mahowald says about half the people in any given audience to which he speaks admit to the occasional hypnic jerks, and a dream of falling is a frequent companion to the twitch.
    There are also more exotic, and more rare, versions of the sleepy-time surprise. .

    One is called an "auditory sleep start." Here, instead of waking with a twitch, you wake to a very loud snap or cracking sound that seems to originate in the center of your own head. Sounds very unpleasant. Another, a "visual sleep start," replaces the crack with a blinding flash of light, also coming from inside your noggin or your eyes. A final variation returns you to full consciousness with a "flowing sensation" that oozes over your skin. All the sleep starts may be accompanied by a grunt, as you exhale through sleepy vocal chords.

    But what -- or who -- is a myoclonic jerk? The term, I discovered, is outdated. Now this disorder is known as Periodic Limb Movement, which isn't nearly as colorful nor as fun to say.

    The disorder itself is like hypnic jerking gone loco. As the myoclonic jerker sleeps, his legs jump and twitch at terrifically precise intervals -- every 30 seconds, for instance.

    "It's like some sort of metronome," Mahowald says. "You can extrapolate five minutes out, and you'll be right on." The twitching may last two hours, then fade away. Although the jerker tends to sleep right through all the fun, the "bed partner" may not. And so researchers pay more attention to this disorder.

    Hypnic jerks, on the other hand, are "of no medical significance," according to Mahowald. "It's completely normal. You see people falling asleep on a bus or at an airport, and they'll often wake up with a little start. You see it not uncommonly in college libraries."

    Those students. What a bunch of jerks."

    aaaaah. myoclonic twitchies.
    little buggers.

    por queeeee!

    "the best way to make it through with hearts and wrists intact is to realize that 2 out of 3 ain't bad" - fallout boy, the take's over, the break's over.

    lol. i just thought a change would be nice. and i'm too lazy to go looking for one of those really nice blogskins simply becuse i can never find one that i really really like. i'm just gonna go and find out how to make one of my own lah. :P

    anyway, i wanted to jot something quick down because i have to go and do my moral tugasans, otherwise, i'm pretty much screwed tomorrow. this jot is about the strangely famous jonas brothers. okay, well, not so strange. look at all those fan girls. ugh.

    okay, i'll admit it. the lead singer (his name constantly escapes me) IS cute. i WILL give him that much. and their songs are kinda catchy. the only catch?
    listening to "burning up" on the radio is like listening to a cat getting burnt up. i mean, the song is catchy enough, yes. but their vocals, gawd. they just.... KILL. i mean, cutie over here has a fairly decent voice i suppose. but then he hands the mike over to curly over there and your eardrums just get SHATTERED. its awful. i mean, he sounds like a 12 year old boy in the middle of pubescence with a sore throat trying to sound sexy. well, i got three words for you, curly, IT'S NOT WORKING. pfft.

    okay. moving on. d is back online. except now sam and i are skeptical. let's keep it at that for the moment.
    we're going to prima selayang this week for nst, and quite truthfully, i'm not looking forward to it. but i have to go. coz i'm the main leader. -big sigh-

    okay! i must now GO before my ass gets glued to the pillow i'm sitting on and i never get my tugasans done. and mishi just reminded me that our moral ujian nilai is tmrw. i'm pretty much screwed, i don't know shit. haha!
    baiii~ ^^
