During the study the participants of the experiment , and the revivals were talking about their dreams and the presence or absence of anxiety during the holidays.

Comparing the brain activity with the duration and level of anxiety of people during sleep, the scientists made a very interesting discovery. It turned out that nightmares in the human brain aktiviziruyutsya two plots under the names of island and the cingulate gyrus.
