When you go to sleep, your brain is still very active.  Actually, there are many amazing and complicated things going on inside of your brain when you sleep.

5 Facts About Sleep

  2. Believe it, or not, some people text, send completed emails, buy items online and more when they sleep.  This condition is called parasomnias.
