Sleep and our Emotional IQ

More theories on the mysterious powers of sleep.

More theories emerge on the mysterious powers of dreaming.

A new study suggests that sleeping is critical for our ability to process emotions and that the less we dream the more apt we are to notice the negative stimuli in our environment over the positive stimuli. The authors of the study (from where else but the University of California at Berkeley) suggest some viable evolutionary explanations for the phenomenon. Great read if you’re into how the other side of our waking life affects us… and certainly full of interesting implications for designing high-stress or emotionally intense systems and experiences for sleep-deprived users.
