Discover the phenomenon known as asymmetrical sleep, where parts of an animal’s brain are asleep while other areas remain active.
Many animals need sleep. But all the threats and demands animals face don’t just go away when it’s time to doze. That’s why a range of birds, mammals, and even humans experience some degree of asymmetrical sleep, where parts of the brain are asleep, and other areas are more active. So, how does it work? Masako Tamaki explores how animals’ brains remain vigilant even at their most vulnerable.

This dream took place during the day in the city of D, I was outside with maybe my brother GC in a fictional area across the street from Dairy Queen, at some point I needed to urinate, and so I walked to the Dairy Queen.
The inside of the Dairy Queen did not look like a Dairy Queen at all, the bathroom had bathroom stalls scattered around, and males and females were using the same bathroom.
All that I can remember of this dream is that my family (my parents and most of my brothers) and I were in the process of buying a house, we were already moving in or had just moved in, and the house seemed to be a somewhat older multi-story house.
At some point I remember us watching a fictional movie called 750 Days Of Summer, at title that I assume was inspired by the movie 500 Days Of Summer (which I have never seen), but I can not remember anything about this movie other than maybe it was a Groundhog Day-like (which I have never seen) movie where the main characters kept reliving the same day over and over again.
I almost got 3 hours of sleep last night, I did not record my dreams, I remember waking up a few times to check the time and trying to go back to sleep to get any more sleep that I could.
I possibly was partly conscious during this, at least briefly, where I was possibly somewhat dreaming / daydreaming / thinking while also paying somewhat attention to the outside world to try to avoid oversleeping.
Last night I got about 3 hours of sleep after staying up very late trying to catch up with things from yesterday like trying to prepare my post for my genealogical DNA test results, and so my mind mostly thought and had some semi-daydreams and some short dreams.
I think that my mind was thinking about things that I did during yesterday and some things that I had to do today, like work and preparing that post et cetera, and sometimes my mind would respond to those thoughts verbally and / or through short dreams and semi-daydreams.
