Pre-University Paper from the year 2020 in the subject Psychology - Miscellaneous, grade: 1, , language: English, abstract: This work deals the questions how lucid dreams can impact our real life. It discusses possible positive and negative effects of lucid dreams, as well as dream therapy. Lucid dreaming is a process while sleeping in which you are fully aware that you are dreaming and can control yourself and the storyline of it. It was first mentioned in "A Study of Dreams", by the Dutch novelist Frederik van Eeden in 1913. Lucid dreams are most common in REM sleep – Rapid Eye Movement. In this state of dreaming, your brain gets active, your heart rate rises and your eyes start to move quicker. A possible reason why you can be aware that you dream is the part of the brain which is responsible for logic as it can wake up during REM sleep and helps the dreamer to find out that he is dreaming.
