With cutting-edge experiments and intriguing case studies, this program explores the science of dreams-revealing their impact on our memories, learning processes, and mental health. Contrasting REM-sleep dreams with those occurring in non-REM sleep, the film examines the roles of the amygdala and the parietal lobe and the ways in which depression and stroke affect, or are affected by, dream patterns. Links between dreams and real-life events are studied, as well as the significance of nightmares and bad dreams in our ability to cope with challenges. Finally, the program delves into the subject of lucid or self-directed dreaming and the development of a "dream database" for psychological research.
