Do you know when you sleep, you often experience an offline replay? Do you wonder why do you get those waking experiences? Well, when you are sleeping, your brains tend to organize memories.
During this process, you often get a glimpse of those memories that your brain holds. Because of this reason, you often get waking experiences.
However, is it scientifically proven? Yes, according to a study, scientists have evidence that proves that brains “offline replay” those waking experiences when you are sleeping.
The research shows that there are microelectrode arrays in your brains that play a vital role. Scientists are experimenting with several participants to gather more evidence. Furthermore, scientists claim that the hippocampus takes screenshots of the involved-interactions in a memory.
The brain then reactivates them to store the memory permanently. Also, scientists are using fMRI scans to conduct these experiments. They have also figured out the same phenomenon occurs in animals as well.
The Braingate is conducting a research project to develop a brain-computer interface that can gather evidence. This interface will also help patients who are suffering from spinal injuries, bone-marrow injuries, and many more.
Two volunteers are taking part in this project. Moreover, the volunteers have paralysis from their neck region. The professionals are performing tests to determine the firing of neurons by sending microelectrodes arrays in their bodies.
They are implanting it in the motor cortex of their brains. Meanwhile, the volunteers took rest, played games, and again took some rest.
The scientists believe that the neurons in the brains would have increased significantly when they pass a multi-electrode array.
Well, we all know little about our sleep, what goes inside in the brain, and how sleep is essential for our minds. So why not invest more in knowing about the unknown.
