Organs function while we sleep?

November 8, 2011 10:02am CST
Does anyone know what are the functions or what our organs were doing while we are sleeping? I remember my officemates sent me an email about this long time ago now but I can't find it in my inbox, probably I deleted before. So can someone help me do my research? I need this. Thanks everyone!

These are some of the things that happen in our body when we sleep.Our brains are still very much at work when we sleep, after all who would be directing your lungs to breathe or your heart to beat, never mind directing numerous other tasks. While there is a “brain resting” stage, there is also a “brain activity” stage, where the brain is just as active as if you were awake. we can burn anywhere from roughly 400 to 900 calories sleeping for 8 hours (the exact number depends on your weight). The only time that our body don't burn calories is when we die. Our organs go through various healing and regenerative processes, that cannot always happen during the day.
