What is dreaming and what causes it? Why are dreams so strange and often hard to remember? Modern science has given us a new and increasingly clear picture of how dreaming is created by the brain. This book introduces sleep laboratory science, and explores how the science of dreaming impacts our understanding of psychoanalysis and mental illness.
