A dream is a series of thoughts, images, or sensations that occur in the mind during sleep. It is a function of the brain.
6 Factors That Determine Whether or Not You Remember Your Dreams
Dreaming may occur as specific regions of the brain are activated through sequenced electrical patterns and chemical activity. Vivid dreams—like a movie that occurs with you as the actor—are associated with rapid eye movement REM sleep. REM is associated with intense activity within the brain. In fact, the brain uses as much energy and glucose in REM as it does during wakefulness. The muscles controlling the eyes are active, as is the diaphragm that is responsible for preserving breathing. This prevents the acting out of dreams from occurring and abnormalities of its regulation account for both sleep paralysis and REM sleep behavior disorder.
The exact purpose of dreaming is still being examined. It seems to have an important role in memory consolidation, including the elimination of irrelevant daytime experiences. It also is important to learning and problem-solving. Curiously, it is possible to experience fragmentary dreams in non-REM sleep.
This includes the lighter stages of sleep called stage 1 and stage 2 and slow-wave sleep called stage 3. It is believed that the dream content of non-REM is more simplistic. It may be the dream of an image, an idea, or concept that is more static. The nature of dreams, and their specific meaning has been a subject of interest for millennia.
The famous neurologist and founder of psychiatry, Sigmund Freud, MD, famously explored the topic in his seminal work from called The Interpretation of Dreams. There is no consensus on the scientific basis for the interpretation of dream content; reflection and derivation of meaning may be best reserved as a personal exercise.
It is normal to dream, but it is common to not recall the dreams that occur. The dreaming state can be identified by measurements made as part of a diagnostic polysomnogram , including the recording of the electroencephalogram EEG , the electrooculogram EOG , and the electromyogram EMG.

The tell-tale signs of REM sleep include an active brain , rapid eye movements, and a transient loss of muscle tone. REM sleep occurs at intervals throughout the night. The first period of REM may be noted 90 to minutes into the night. If it occurs early, in less than 15 minutes, this may be a sign of narcolepsy. REM periods become more prolonged towards morning.
The Sounds of Remembered Dreams
As a result, the last third of the night may include mostly REM sleep. It is common to wake in the morning out of the last period of REM. Just because they are not recalled, the dreams associated with REM sleep are likely still occurring.
There may be variability night-to-night and across the lifespan. What accounts for the lack of dream recall? There are a few possible explanations for dreams that cannot be remembered. First, it is possible that REM sleep is not occurring or at least not occurring as much as normal.
Medications may suppress REM sleep. In particular, antidepressants seem to have a powerful influence by delaying the onset or reducing the amount of REM sleep.
Alcohol may also act as a REM sleep suppressant, at least until it wears off. If REM sleep is occurring, the vivid dreams that are associated with it may not be recalled. If there is a transition from REM sleep to another state of sleep most often stage 1 or stage 2 , prior to recovering consciousness, the dreams may be forgotten. As a general rule, dreams fade quickly after waking.
The electrical signals and chemical signatures that constitute the experience of the dream may disappear as wakefulness ensues, like a message written on a fogged mirror that vanishes as the steam evaporates. It is possible for elements of the dream to be recalled later in the day, perhaps triggered by an experience that reactivates the same area of the brain that created the dream overnight. Particularly memorable dreams may create an impression that persists for decades.
