Hibernating Lemurs Could give Clues to Human Health

There is a video in the link from the BBC that talks about why Lemurs hibernate and how that could be of benefit for humans. I wonder if hibernating makes for some fantastic dreams?

Hibernation is an extreme resting state where the body’s processes slow to the bare minimum.Like bears, bees and many other animals, the fat-tailed dwarf lemur goes into this state of ‘suspended animation’ for the winter.Researchers in the United States are studying this process in these little lemurs to see if this could actually help humans, as Lizzie Crouch reports from North Carolina.
