REM Sleep Correlations with Resting Heart Rate

Research shows that other mammals like humans have REM sleep stages and dreams. However, cold-blooded animals such as fish and lizards do not. REM is the sleep-stage when we dream and restore our cognition to wake- up more refreshed in the morning.

The data shows a correlation between resting heart-rate and REM sleep. What the data clearly shows is that females tend to get more REM sleep.
