Researchers present a new theory about dreaming, suggesting dreams may be an accidental byproduct of our waking cognitive abilities.
Researchers have created a computer model based on the dynamics of brain cells and its neural connections. They hope the model will help them understand why certain portions of the brain work together when a person daydreams.
