Renowned neurologist Dr Guy Leschziner explains what happens to the brain at night including the science behind nightmares, night terrors and sleepwalking.

Are we really fully asleep at night? Do some people experience a disconnect between the sleeping part of their brain and the active part so the two become confused.?And does this happen to all of us to some degree? And are some individuals actually asleep during the day when appearing to be awake?

Leschziner is a consultant neurologist at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals, where he leads the Sleep Disorders Centre, and a reader in neurology at King’s College London. He also works at London Bridge and Cromwell Hospitals. He is the presenter of the Mysteries of Sleep series on BBC Radio 4 and editor of the forthcoming Oxford Specialist Handbook of Sleep Medicine.  Here he talks to LBC radio host Matthew Stadlen, a former Telegraph interviewer and BBC presenter.
