Introduction to Psychology Study Guide Ch. 5 1. Define consciousness and daydreams. Consciousness is a state of awareness. Daydreams are relatively focused thinking about fantasies. 2. Define and give an example of divided consciousness. Divided Consciousness is the splitting off of two conscious activities that occur simultaneously, an example of this is watching television and having a conversation at the same time. 3. Distinguish between hypnologic and REM sleep. Hypnologic sleep is a relaxed state of dreamlike awareness between wakefulness and sleep, and REM sleep is rapid-eye movement sleep, characterized by movement of the eyes under the lids; often accompanies dreams. 4. Define day residue. Day residue is dream content that is similar to events in the person’s waking life. 5. Describe the following sleep phenomena: nightmares, night terrors, sleepwalking, and sleep talking. Nightmares are dreams that occur during REM sleep and whose content is exceptionally frightening, sad, angry, or in some other way uncomfortable. Night terrors are upsetting nocturnal experiences that occur most often in preschool-age children
