    When we sleep, our brain goes through the four phases of the project. In the first of three stages of non-rapid movement of the eye (non-REM).

    The first stage involves the transition from wakefulness to sleep is when the body releases from the daily routine, and the “shock” in the temple.

    The second stage is also known as non-REM sleep, it is going to be a light sleeper. In the third stage of sleep is deeper, and it provides a deep sense of rest that a person needs to feel comfortable in the early morning.

    In fact, the time that the brain does most of its dreams, it is the so-called REM sleep. But why is it that we often forget our dreams? And if it is the memory of our dreams are lost?

    A new study in mice shows that REM sleep provides a period of”active forgetting.””It most frequently occurs in order to prevent information overload, according to a new study, and in the brain, which is responsible for the forgotten is also the neurons that help control appetite.

    The new findings, published in the journal Science. Thomas Kilduff, PhD, director of the Center for Neuroscience at SRI International, a Research Institute in Menlo Park, Calif., led the research in collaboration with Akihiro Yamanaka, Ph. from a university in Japan.
