Scientists from the University of Milan has compared brain activity during the formation of dreams with the classic form of psychosis. In these States people are easily making the wrong conclusions and go from objective reality. In total the study involved 12 people. About it reports The Daily Mail.
The volunteers were asked to record dreams and to share notes with scientists. Also had to record all the main activities and events during the study. People wrote stories and drew pictures in dreams to explain the essence of each individual case.
The vast number of dreams seemed incredibly strange. When performing MRI during sleep, scientists have noted an increase in the activity of the right hemisphere of the brain, namely areas that are responsible for the words, meanings, and reasoning.
Stories based on dreams, increased activity in the frontal and temporal gyri. Once the narrative was strange, the activity of these zones decreased, though brain refused to understand the meaning of what is happening.
Oddities, scientists believe, can serve certain signs associated with feelings or personal experience. To equate dreams to hallucinations and psychosis is not worth it. This is usually a manifestation of fantasies, and any dream, no matter how extraordinary it may seem, is a variant of the norm.
