There are two kinds of dreams, the ones you have while sleeping and dreams you dream awake such as a goal you want to achieve. Today I will be talking about the dreams you have while sleeping. I’ll talk about the other one in another story. Dreams are a universal human experience that can be described as a state of consciousness characterized by sensory, cognitive and emotional occurrences during sleep. They’re stories and images that our minds create while we sleep. They can be entertaining, fun, romantic, disturbing, frightening, and sometimes bizarre. Nightmares are distressing dreams that cause the dreamer to feel a number of disturbing emotions. Common reactions to a nightmare include fear and anxiety. Lucid dreaming is the dreamer is aware that they are dreaming. They may have some control over their dream. In neuroimaging studies of brain activity during REM sleep, scientists found that the distribution of brain activity might also be linked to specific dream features.The right and left hemispheres of the brain seem to contribute in different ways to a dream formation. Researchers study that the left hemisphere seems to provide dream origin while the right hemisphere provides dream vividness, figurativeness and affective activation level. Studies of brain activity suggest that most people over the age of 10 years dream between 4 and 6 times each night, but some people rarely remember dreaming. It is often said that 5 minutes after a dream, people have forgotten 50 percent of its content, increasing to 90 percent another 5 minutes later. The number of people aged in their 20s, 30s and 40s dreaming in color increased through 1993 to 2009. Researchers speculated that color television might play a role in the generational difference. Some dreams may seem to predict future events. Some researchers claim to have evidence that this is possible, but there is not enough evidence to prove it. Dreams can happen to anyone including you. There are so many types of dreams but this story covers some of the basics about dreams Thank you for reading and remember to have a great week ! :D.
