Nightmares prepare us for the dangers of real life

Often many of us wake up in nightmare and we feel a degree of fear, but have you ever wondered if these nightmares have anything to do with real life?

A study has shown that nightmares help our brains cope with stressful situations. Researchers in Switzerland and the United States conducted an experiment with 18 people, In which they examined the nighttime brain activity of these people by electrodes and in the meantime these people were awakened several times to answer a few questions.

After waking these people, they were asked if they had any dreams? If has saw a dream how they are feeling? Are they scared after dreaming?Researchers found that the areas of the brain that control emotions during nightmares were dynamic.

In another experiment, he gave a diary to 89 people in which they had to write down the details of a week’s dreams. Finally, everyone was put on an MRI scan where they were shown negative and scary images.

Experts found that people who dreamed and did nightmares, the parts of their brain that controlled emotions. They reacted swiftly and effectively, while those who did not have nightmares were the opposite.

Top authors working at the University of Geneva says,  that we were particularly interested in fear. We wanted to see which parts of our brain are most motivated when we see a scary dream.

Studies have been extremely helpful in understanding how nightmares are effective for the brain in real life.
