  Sleepwalking The Causes - Also known as somnambulism, sleepwalking often occurs during the deep sleep phase. The common belief that you should not wake a sleepwalker is a dangerous myth.

  What Causes Sleepwalking? - The normal sleep cycle involves distinct stages from light drowsiness to deep sleep. Rapid eye movement (REM) sleep is a different type of sleep, in which the eyes move rapidly and vivid dreaming is most common. During a night, there will be several cycles of non-REM and REM sleep. Sleep walking (somnambulism) most often occurs during deep non-REM sleep (stage 3 or stage 4 sleep) early in the night. It can occur during REM sleep near morning. 2/5
