sleepwalking may be more common than you think
Sleepwalking may be more common than experts have estimated, says a California psychiatrist. "The numbers are very big," says researcher Maurice Ohayon, MD, PhD, DSc, professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences and director of the Stanford University Sleep Epidemiology Research Center. In his poll of nearly 16,000 adults, he found nearly 30% reported a history of sleepwalking. That included episodes in childhood and adolescence.
