when asleep

Digital Humanities

Digital Humanities interprets the cultural and social impact of new media and information technologies–the fundamental components of the new information age–as well as creates and applies these technologies to answer cultural, social, historical, and philological questions, both those traditionally conceived and those only enabled by new technologies.

This three links are from digital humanities projects because they study some humanity topics using the new technologies to improve their researches and studies:

Sleeping makes you more intelligent and creative

There are some investigations that prove that sleeping stimulates creativity and increases inteligence.

A National Geographic article explains us that there is a recent study which proves that a person who sleeps with the REM phase is more creativity than other, acording to the head of the study, Sara Mednick.

In the experiment there were three groups of people: the first group slept and arrived to the REM phase, the second group slept but not arriving to the REM phase, and the last group of people didn’t sleep, they only rested. So this people who arrived to the REM phase got better results than the others in the analog problem answers.


Hi, my name is Irene Colás and I’m sixteen years old. I live in Terrassa (Barcelona) and I study at Escola Tecnos, that’s why I’m here. I’m very interested in psychology world and, in fact, that’s what want to study. Moreover, I like to spend time with the ones I love and go shopping.

An other thing I love is to help other people and trying to advise them with my knowledge on certain topics. A topic that I know well, because I’ve researched it, is about sleep questions. So, in this blog, you will find all about this topic. From scientific information to psychology studies, experiments…

Have a look on it!
