People have been shown to have done amazing things while "sleepwalking," including driving places. However, the press has been jumping on a recent report of a woman who was found to have sleep-emailed as well. She apparently logged into her email while "sleeping" and sent a series of nonsensical emails which she later failed to recall. The whole scenario is a bit bizarre -- and reminds us how little we know about sleep and brain functions during sleep. I'm reminded of a recent episode of This American Life where they looked at The Fear of Sleep, which includes a hilarious story of comedian Mike Birbiglia's (actually very scary, and quite dangerous) battle with sleepwalking. It's the funniest story you'll ever hear concerning a man throwing himself out a window (it starts about 9 minutes in).
