This was reported in Science Advances. So, according to biologists, moments before falling asleep in people, the so-called “creative upsurge” is recorded. It usually happens during the sleep phase or the stage without rapid eye movements. Thus, the best creative process occurs precisely in the stage between sleep and wakefulness.
Co-author of the study and neuroscientist at the Paris Brain Institute, Delphine Wudiett, shared that her experiences motivated her to start the work. So, according to her, she experienced many hypnagogic experiences that resemble dreams.
“I was surprised that over the past two decades, almost none of the scientists have studied this period. “, – said the scientist.
