Scientists have solved the mystery of nightmares

For the first time in the history of modern science, scientists have found out exactly which parts of the brain responsible for the formation and content of dreams. This became possible as a result of a series of studies whose aim was to monitor the brain activity of sleeping people.

Based on the obtained data, the experts concluded that a key role in shaping how ordinary dreams and nightmares playing back part of the cerebral cortex, certain areas (depending on the storyline and content of the dream) demonstrate increased activity.

Monitoring the condition of the rear rim zone gives you the opportunity to judge the content of the dream of an individual. In particular, the activity data of the above-mentioned areas make it likely to 90% to judge whether a person sees dreams while the so-called fast phase of sleep.

Recall that modern science distinguishes between five main types of sleep, during the first four of which lasts so-called "slow phase" and only during the fifth begins a "fast" accompanied by dreams. The ability to dream, often associated with increased brain activity during the fifth stage, but the absence of dreams, in contrast, tells about low-frequency brain activity at this stage.

According to research, the essence of which consisted in the observation of people awakened during various sleep stages, most awake in slow stages reminisced about his dreams while the subjects who were awakened during the rapid phase of sleep, claimed that no dreams are seen.

On the basis of data obtained and reviewing information about the brain activity of thirty-two sleeping volunteers, made a map of brain activity that allows us to judge the impact of its various departments on the formation of dreams during any of the available phases of sleep.
