Synopsis:
  • Dreams are a window on some processing that goes on in the brain while we sleep
  • The brain is rapidly processing a huge amount of information in whatever order
  • Our consciousness sees flashes of the bits that are being processed
  • These bits seem to compose stories of their own, and the stories look weird
  • Remembering and forgetting occur during dreams
  • Rem sleep is important for consolidating long-term memories
