  • Trivia

    • In much of the episode, sleep is said to be generated from the thalamus and the computer probe is said to be implanted there, upon which activation of the probe renders the subjects into a dreamlike state to perform violence. However, the thalamus is regarded as the relay center of the brain, sort of like a neural switchboard. Deeper REM sleep, in which dreams are largely present, is actually actively produced by several sets of nuclei in the pons, which is located below the thalamus closer to the brainstem.
