Okay, I hope I'm not looking like an ignorant person right now but this question is bugging me and I hope the professionals here can help me.

1. Does listening to a tape of a subject while you sleep help you retain and learn it better when you are awake?

2. Assuming that the answer to #1 is Yes - If one can stand to listen to two or more tapes simultaneoulsy while he or she sleeps, can the brain properly process the information so that it enhances the learning of the three subjects while the person is awake. Ex. Listen to a tape of Hamlet, a lesson on speaking in Spanish, and a tape on Calculus.

I have not done this yet, mainly because I only have one tape player right now.

Let me know your opinions and any web sites where I can find more information on this.

Is this what they call "subliminal learning"?
