Natisha Singh  asked the Naked Scientists:
   
HI REDI, I HAVE A VERY WEIRD QUESTION FOR CHRIS.


SOME NIGHTS MY HUSBAND WORKS THROUGH THE NIGHT, SOMETIMES GOING ON FOR 2 DAYS WITHOUT NO SLEEP AT ALL.


THIS MORNING HE MENTIONED TO ME, THAT WHEN HE DOES CATCH A NAP IN BETWEEN WORK, HE HEARS MUSIC AND VOICES IN HIS HEAD.


I KNOW THIS IS CRAZY BUT PERHAPS CHRIS CAN EXPLAIN FURTHER ON THIS.


THANKS REDI AND CHRIS FOR A SUPER GREAT SHOW.


LOVE IT.


NATISHA SINGH

What do you think?

If he is taking a "nap"..then I assume he is asleep and these auditory hallucinations could either be dreams ..or perhaps he is picking up auditory cues from his environment.

I sleep with the radio on and I often hear the radio in a lucid dream state....quite bizarre !
