What is it called when you jump in your sleep? And what causes it to happen?

The muscles of the body relaxes and when it relaxes too much your brain thinks you are dying and so it sends an electrical shock through out the body to make sure you are alive.

I'm not sure what its called, but jumping in a dream or falling is a representation of your body entering REM or deep sleep.
