We are currently conducting independent research on Sleep Paralysis.

Sleep paralysis: An often frightening form of paralysis that occurs when a person is suddenly unable to move for a few minutes, most often upon falling asleep or waking up.

The symptoms of sleep paralysis include sensations of noises, smells, levitation, paralysis, terror, and images of frightening intruders. Once considered very rare, Many people are now believed to experience sleep paralysis sometime during their life.

We have high hopes that our findings (through this survey) will greatly advance the study of this issue worldwide.

All information collected as a result of your participation in the study will be used for research purposes only and no individuals will be identified in any report of this research. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this project please contact us here.
