There is a phase that one goes through when you sleep, which is called REM sleep. It increases heart rate and blood pressure and the eyes move rapidly back and forth. It is believed that most dreams occur during this phase. The phase takes over 25% of sleep time (average 3 hours), in infants and young children can take up to 9 hours. I hope you could help

Most dreams (that we remember) actually take place in the few moments before we wake up. Many dreams seem a lot longer but it has been proved by studying Rapid Eye Movements (REM) that they really last for only a few seconds, something like the Fast Forward of a video. It is only when we wake up that we assign a timescale to them and remember them as lasting for a lot longer!
