When Brains Dream

by Antonio Zadra and Robert Stickgold

Questions on the origins and meaning of dreams are as old as humankind and as confounding and exciting today as when nineteenth-century scientists first attempted to unravel them. Why do we dream? Do dreams hold psychological meaning or are they merely the reflection of random brain activity? What purpose do dreams serve?

When Brains Dream addresses these core questions about dreams while illuminating the most up-to-date science in the field. Written by two world-renowned sleep and dream researchers, it debunks common myths that we only dream in REM sleep, for example – while acknowledging the mysteries that persist around both the science and experience of dreaming.
