Why we sleep has been a matter of heated discussions among neuroscientists. There are a plethora of theories, but there appears to be no strong consensus.As Russel Foster, a neuroscientist that presented at TED, has outlined, we need to spend a third of our lives asleep for several reasons, which are:Energy conservation, but this wasn't convenient, as we only save the amount of calories found in a hotdog when we're asleep – pretty useless.Restoration, and getting ready for a new day. And this one is actually supported by strong evidence, as scientists have found out that some genes related to restoration and metabolic pathways are turned on only during sleep.Brain processes and memory consolidation. And actually this is the strongest theory of all, as it was found that sleep-deprived people find it more difficult to learn new skills and to come up with creative solutions to problems. Next time you're facing a difficult situation, just go get some sleep.So what happens when we're asleep ? Our brains do the most amazing stuff and we're not even aware of it.
