Why can’t we remember the moment we fall asleep?

In: Biology

Going to sleep occurs in stages, as your brain parts and body step-by-step slow down and rest. The part of our brain that would record these memories ‘goes to sleep’ before the part of our brain that records consciousness does. You know you’re awake, but you wont remember it. Its called being Hypnogogic, being in the state just before sleep.
