Awakened Dreams

Awakened DreamsIf you wake up slightly several times per night, you are more likely to remember dreams. That’s because, if you wake up slightly, you are more likely to commit the dream to long-term memory. People who have more active temporoparietal junctions (hearing related area of the brain) during sleep tend to remember dreams more because noise is more likely to slightly awaken them and they commit the dream to long-term memory (information from the 2/22/14 Washington Post at http://m.washingtonpost.com/national/health-science/study-the-key-to-remembering-your-dreams-might-be-the-blood-flow-in-your-brain/2014/02/22/486125e2-9a56-11e3-b88d-f36c07223d88_story.html
