The doctors from St. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis, who specialize in sleep problems, are convinced that in order to send a text message one does not actively use motor skills or involve the brain. The doctors even know a case when sending an SMS was not the limit. In 2008, the representatives of the Seton Hall University published a report which described how a person sent a letter via e-mail in a dreamy state.

Dr. Fisch, an expert on sleep disorders, advises anyone who may suffer from somnambulism to create a comfortable environment for sleep. First and foremost, it is necessary to put the mobile phone away.
