Dreams and Memory
A study looks at how dreaming improves memory. Given a maze test, subjects who napped for 90 minutes improved performance on a retest.
“Our findings suggest that if something is difficult for you, it’s more meaningful to you and the sleeping brain therefore focuses on that subject – it ‘knows’ you need to work on it to get better, and this seems to be where dreaming can be of most benefit.”
