Humans may have more in common with spiders than we think. A new study has revealed that spiders may have similar sleeping habits as humans.
Findings showed that spiders also experience REM-like sleep movements, just like humans. REM, or Rapid Eye Movement, involves brain parts becoming active and dreaming.
Scientists studied baby jumping spiders’ night habits and found their legs twitched and their eyes fluttered, just like humans occasionally do when we sleep.
