Remembering dreams

People who tend to remember their dreams also respond more strongly than others to hearing their name when they're awake, new research suggests.

Everyone dreams during sleep, but not everyone recalls the mental escapade the next day, and scientists aren't sure why some people remember more than others.

To find out, researchers used electroencephalography to record the electrical activity in the brains of 36 people while the participants listened to background tunes, and occasionally heard their own first name. The brain measurements were taken during wakefulness and sleep. Half of the participants were called high recallers, because they reported remembering their dreams almost every day, whereas the other half, low recallers, said they only remembered their dreams once or twice a month.

Digger & Hard To Figure Dreams

Digger (via Facebook): I hate dreams where there’s a pressing emergency but it takes forever to figure out what you’re doing to fix it. I had a dream that a house was on fire, I tried calling but for some reason had my Sprint phone and no service, so someone let me borrow their iPhone but we both kept misdialing… the odd part? I was diali…ng the St. Maries Dispatch… 245-2555… odd that I’d incorperate that into my dream!

Question: Had any strange dreams lately?
