The science of your dreams 13

Each night when we sleep, we dream. Have you ever wondered why? Sidarta Ribeiro is founder and vice director of the Brain Institute at Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Norte in Brazil, where he is also a professor of neuroscience. He joins host Krys Boyd to discuss how dreams are connected to how we learn and even how we understand our existence. His book is called “The Oracle of Night: The History and Science of Dreams.”
