(CBS) –   The part of your brain that works on remembering when you`re awake is hard at work, even when you are asleep.

Researchers at UCLA say it helps explain how you can more easily recall phone numbers or directions you memorized the day before.

Researchers also found that part of the brain is also very active under anesthesia.
