The seminar presentation will discuss how dreams relate to memory. It is not fully understood how dreams are generated by the brain, but recent research has uncovered relationships between sleep, dreams, and memory function (Peigneux et al., 2004; Wamsley et al., 2010). Implications for understanding how brain activity relates to dreaming are discussed.
