LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – If you dream while you take a quick nap you may be even more productive when you wake up, that's according to researchers at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.

They tested about a hundred adults by putting them in a virtual maze for an hour. Then, half the group took a ninety minute nap, while the rest were assigned to quiet activities. They found those who slept and dreamed, performed ten times better than the rest of the participants when they were retested five hours later.

 Researchers say dreams are a sign that your brain is still working on what you've learned that day.
