REM sleep deprivation generally causes what kinds of side effects?

(A) Intense, prolonged periods of stage 3 and 4 sleep
(B) Interference with memory tasks
(C) Decreased sleep onset episodes
(D) Sleep apnea and night terrors
(E) Heightened manifest dream content

(B) Interference with memory tasks

People deprived on REM sleep have difficulty with memory tasks. REM sleep deprivation does not increase stage 3 and 4 sleep (in fact, people deprived of REM sleep more easily slip into sleep onset and REM sleep, not deeper sleep stages like stage 3 and 4). REM deprivation is not related to sleep apnea, night terrors, or manifest dream content.
