NIGHT TERRORS AND GENES
Dr Bich Hong Hguyen at the Sleep Disorders Centre in Montreal's Sacre-Coeur Hospital said that night terrors which send children into inconsoloble screaming fits are at least partially inheritable.During these events, children seem confused and disoriented. Any attempt to awaken them may increase their agitation and prolong the episode. As night terrors are brief events, children usually return to sleep with no recollection of the episode.
