ClockNews #15: Dreams

Study Disputes the Randomness of Dreams

Your wildest dreams probably start soon after your head hits
the pillow.
A new study finds that more aggressive, emotionally charged
dreams tend to occur in the early, rapid-eye-movement (REM) period of sleep,
whereas deeper, non-REM slumber encourages gentler, kinder dreaming.
The finding that the brain compartmentalizes dreams into two separate sleep periods
may also put to rest the theory that dreams are no more than a meaningless
rehash of random images, according to the researchers.
