I love when science validates common sense, but common sense is not so common, so some of us need scientific proof to believe anything. In this case, research at the University of Bristol shows how brain activity during sleep sorts and consolidates experiences into memories, filing what is important for later recall and discarding the rest. So, if you don’t get proper sleep your memory could suffer; you may be forgetful and slow to action. And that starts you down the downward spiral of stimulants and supplements to be the band aid to your lack of dreamtime. This research explains exactly the mechanism of how memories are processed while you’re out cold and points out something quite profound, that “successful replay of brain activity during sleep is dependent on the emotional state of the person when they are learning.” Thank you science for validating what some of us already know!
