Studies using magnetoencephalography (MEG) (10) suggest that during REM sleep the nervous system is processing its own intrinsic neuronal information which creates a form of internal consciousness when we dream, while during waking hours it receives sensory information from the outside world which processes and modifies neuronal rhythms, creating a state of awareness--the SELF.
