What to look for on Smart Talk Thursday, June 26, 2014:
Dreaming is one of the most fascinating and mysterious human functions. Although we all dream on a daily basis, we have little control over our dreams and almost always wake up barely being able to remember what happened in our minds while we were asleep.
So, why do we dream? Does dreaming serve a purpose and if so, what is it? And why is it that we can remember some of our dreams, but not others?
Did you know that dreams help humans learn, can enhance creativity, and actually is a survival mechanism?
On Thursday’s Smart Talk, we'll address the science of dreams. That doesn't include trying to interpret dreams, because dream interpretation isn't really science. The program will address factual information about dreams that most of us are probably unaware of.
