Is It Possible To Learn Something New While You’re Sleep?

Learn Something New While You're Sleep

Human brain perceives sounds during sleep, but it’s unable to group these sounds in an appropriate sequence.  Scientists used magnetoencephalography to prove that speech cannot be recognized during non-rapid and rapid eye movement sleep.  The ability to learn during sleep, known as hypnopedia, was popularized in the late 1950s. It’s an attempt to convey information through ...
