    Dreams are hallucinations that occur during certain stages of sleep. They're strongest during REM sleep, or the rapid eye movement stage, when you may be less likely to recall your dream. Much is known about the role of sleep in regulating our metabolism, blood pressure, brain function, and other aspects of health.

    If the brain stopped thinking, you would be dead or in a coma.  And even some ppl say that in a coma you still can hear, or have some faculties left. To stop dreaming means to stop thinking, and the mind never really stops thinking.   At night it creates the dreams to release energy, or memories, and deals with a lot of pent up emotions. If you want a deeper explanation you of how the physical brain works you would have to post your question in the section dealing with medical issues. I found that under the Science & Mathematics Category there are subsections called Biology, Medicine, and another one for Other Sciences.  Under the Health Category you only have the Mental Health Department. Maybe one of these other Yahoo sites can help you.
