Is getting too little REM sleep dangerous? In this video we examine a study where it was found that reducing REM sleep can lead to negative consequences like a reduced mortality, and what that means for polyphasic sleepers.

Polyphasic sleep is the science of sleeping in alternative sleep cycles and thus reducing the time you spend sleeping. There are also other benefits to this sleeping style, like shortened sleep onset and lucid dreaming benefits.
