Nice conversation on this week's All in the Mind podcast, hosted by Lynne Malcolm.

The Mind at Rest

Sunday 15 December 2013

The surprising science of sleep and daydreaming. Letting your mind wander involves complex brain activity and facilitates problem solving, creativity and even enhances our sense of identity. Also, scientific sleep studies are showing that our memory can be enhanced and we can learn new things ... all while we’re quietly snoozing. This program looks at the benefits of zoning out.
