Sleep and Dreaming

Lecture no. 31 from the course: Understanding the Brain

Sleep and Dreaming

Taught by Professor Jeanette Norden | 32 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

Why do we sleep? What, if anything, do dreams mean? Far from being a passive event, sleep is actively induced and involves areas of the central nervous system extending from the spinal cord to the forebrain. Researchers have also learned a great deal about the types of dreams that occur during various stages of sleep.
