When the body is at rest, the human brain remains active. That is what causes people dreaming while sleeping. There is research evidence that says that a dream can make people get smarter.
Knowledge of brain absorbed during the day is often fragmented into a strange fantasy produced at night. Scientists have found that dreaming about things that have been studied related to improved performance in activities that are dreamed up.
When sleeping, the study showed that the same patterns of brain activity experienced when the body awake. In 2011, the Sleep Disorders Unit of Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital in Paris to do research to ensure this.
Researchers teach a series of dance movements to a group of patients who have sleep disorders sleepwalking (sleepwalking). Researchers then record the subject when she was sleeping. While I was asleep and lying on the bed with eyes closed, the woman who has taught dance movements are doing dance moves he has learned before.
“During sleep, the human repeat newly learned real skills for the first time a direct and unambiguous,” said the researcher, Delphine Oudiette as reported by Time, Thursday (05/01/2012).
Most people certainly do not move much while sleeping. Nevertheless, the brain remains active. When the body is resting, scientists theorize that the brain processes information and important events that had just experienced, then integrate it into the memory area. This is what may explain why dreams become visible as a mixture of new experiences and old memories are strange.
Dream about something that has just learned could be a sign that new knowledge has been processed effectively. In a study in 2010 which was published in the journal Current Biology, researchers at Harvard Medical School reported that students who dreamed of computer tasks that have been studied showed increased 10-fold in their ability to complete the task than students who did not dream job.
Robert Stickgold, a Harvard researcher, suggests that learning is best done right before bed or after a nap after studying in the afternoon. The reason is, it will increase the possibility of dreaming about the material that has been studied.
Some scientists suspect that there is a learning process can be improved by way of dreaming. They asked the study participants to practice the mental skills while you sleep.
In the first study published in the journal The Sport Psychologist in 2010, a psychologist at the University of Bern, Daniel Erlacher instruct participants to dream of throwing coins into the cup.
The result, those who managed to dream about the task experienced an increase in the ability of throwing coins in real life significantly. Erlacher experiment is further increase the likelihood that people can train themselves while sleeping.
