REM sleep: A social bonding mechanism

Journal/Book: New Idea Psychol. 1996; 14: The Boulevard, Langford Lane, Kidlington, Oxford, England OX5 1GB. Pergamon-Elsevier Science Ltd. 35-46.

Abstract: It is proposed that REM sleep evolved, in part, to promote social bonding between (1) a mammalian infant and the mother and (2) sexual partners. The bonding hypothesis is consistent with the available evidence from psychobiologic studies of the attachment process in infants, with the known physiologic correlates of REM sleep, with the facts concerning the ontogeny and the phylogeny of REM sleep, and with phenomenological properties of dreams. .
