Demystifying Medicine Video

We all sleep and dream, and it’s something so common to us, but how much do we really know about the mechanisms behind how they work? This video will explore the molecular mechanisms behind the different stages of the sleep cycle and how dreams occur in relationship to sleep. There is still so much more information that is yet to be discovered in terms of these mechanisms, which makes it a critical topic to delve deeper into. It’s amazing how much our brain can benefit from dreaming in connection to the many emotions that we experience in our dreams. Thanks for watching and sweet dreams!
