Efforts underway to record dreams
NEW YORK: A researcher from the United States has announced his plans to electronically record and interpret dreams, not as a way of spying, but to help human to better understand what makes us dream, and what they may mean.
Lead scientist Moran Cerf writes in the journal ‘Nature’ that he and his fellow scientists have discovered a system which can record higher activity in the brain. The eventual goal of the research is to enable people’s memories of their dreams to be corroborated with an electronic picturing of the dream.
Psychologists have been using dream analysis for quite some time in order to try and understand the unconscious mind, yet they could only rely on a person’s memory of their dreams. Now they hope to be able to “see” the dream after the person is awake.
He does admit that there is a long way to go before his idea reaches fruition, but they will be working steady on it, until they reach their goals.
