Will sleepy dreams affect memory?

  Sleeping and dreaming every day does not mean that there is a problem with the brain. On the contrary, proper dreaming is a normal physiological need of the individual.
   Studies have found that deprivation of dreams can lead to a series of physiological abnormalities and adverse psychological reactions in the body.
   Dreamless sleep is not only of poor quality, but it may also be a sign of brain damage or sleep disorders.
   Dreams are indeed closely related to memory.
   Some scientists have put forward a view of “reverse learning”. They believe that when the brain stores too much information, problems will occur in transmission, and dreaming can eliminate useless information in recent memory and turn recent memory into long-term memory.
   This is similar to a computer’s disk scanning program, which scans our brains every night to see if there are any errors, and modify them if there are any.
   Many people may have such an experience: dreaming more when sleeping, their memory will decline over time.
   This seems to be contrary to the above-mentioned knowledge of sleep medicine. In fact, this situation is often not true dreaminess, but only an increase in the sense of dreams and an increase in the experience of dreams.
   This is common in patients with insomnia, which manifests as superficial and fragmented sleep, so the number of awakenings from sleep increases, and the experience of dreams is enhanced and increased.
   In fact, the total dream time has been reduced, or even seriously insufficient. During insomnia, the quality and (or) quantity of sleep decreases, which can lead to a decrease in memory.
   Therefore, if you have the problem of “more nighttime dreams and memory decline”, it is recommended to go to the sleep specialist as soon as possible to remove the falsehood and distinguish the true, and make reasonable diagnosis and treatment.
