A recent study has revealed that dreams help us learn things better.  According to www.dailymail.co.uk, people who during a nap tend to dream about the task at hand perform better than the people do not take a nap or do not dream about the concerned task. Dreams have been a centre point of discussion among experts for more than 100 years. The study which has been conducted by a team of researchers at the Harvard Medical School has revealed that dreams could be a way opted by the brain to understand new facts, process the data and integrate it better.
As per www.sify.com, the team of researchers conducted the study on about 99 people who were made to sit before a computer and learn about a maze layout which was three dimensional in structure. The volunteers were then told to find a particular tree which was a landmark in the maze. Some of the volunteers were asked to sleep for a while whereas others were asked to stay awake. Those of who, who took a nap found the landmark tree in lesser time. Volunteers also reported to have dreamt about music from that maze while other few dreamt about caves, resembling the maze. ‘Dreams are a clear indication that the sleeping brain is working on memories at multiple levels, including ways that will directly improve performance.” concluded Professor Stickgold, lead researcher
