In the News (from Insciences.org): “Sleep helps us to store relevant information” – When we are asleep, our brain is not idle. While our body is relatively calm and still, the neurons in our brain continue to work. This activity is important because during sleep we subconsciously process memories so that they can be stored in our mind.
In the brain, the hippocampus acts as the ‘temporary’ memory, i.e. the first structure in which a new experience is stored. Over the course of time, this experience is moved to the cerebral cortex for long-term storage, through a process referred to as memory consolidation. This takes place during periods of physical inactivity, for example during sleep.
My Comment: Kabbalah says that during sleep, the brain processes all that has happened – it sorts, memorizes, relives and makes conclusions. If this is does not happen, then a person loses the possibility to receive and process information. Our dreams are results of “wandering” thoughts and decisions.
