Scientists have discovered that when the night wore on, people’s dreams will become more and more absurd. University professor of cognitive psychology Bedford horsepower Malinowski Josie (Josie Malinowski) In an interview with “Time Magazine” interview about: “In a period of time before people awake, they dream will become increasingly absurd, impossible to happen in real life. “
Professor horsepower Malinowski also said that in addition to people’s dreams will become absurd, but also full of “emotional.” The researchers randomly selected 16 people to participate in the experiment, asking them to wear eyelid and head sensors, which monitor their sleep. During the experiment, participants will be wake-up four times. The next morning, they need to remember their dreams theme and think about their relationship with the realities of life.
Professor horsepower Malinowski believes that research dreams can help people understand their own heart and behavior. Sleep is divided into two phases: rapid eye movement sleep (REM sleep) and non-rapid eye movement sleep (non-REM sleep). When people are in non-REM sleep, that is, into slow-wave sleep. At this point, the immune system will be self-repair or enhancement. At the same time, people prone to strange dreams, even nightmares. And is in REM sleep, the body will have their own emotions processing. The move will result in the accumulation of negative emotions, then presented in the form of nightmares.
Some experts believe that women premenstrual syndrome can induce nightmares. A study in 2008 showed that women are more likely to have nightmares than men. The study’s researchers – University of the West of England, a psychology professor Jenny Parker pointed out that the generation of nightmares and body temperature change. Women’s temperature will change with their menstrual cycles, a period, the female body’s progesterone hormone levels rise, resulting in increased body temperature, night sweats, hot flashes, and may induce nightmares.
Boucher Hospital gynecologist Tony Porat said menopausal women prone to absurd dream. 10 years among pre-menopausal women, estrogen levels in the body will be significantly decreased. Its influence women’s serotonin levels, also causing hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings and other issues. Thus, approximately 15% of women serious decline in quality of sleep.
A study in 2006 showed that nightmare sometimes react to human health problems. Professor McNamara believes that people entering REM sleep, the brain will effectively identify and deal with some feeling, and those who feel it is often overlooked by people. Through dreams, the brain can be presented to people feeling abstract.
