Abstract

Despite being a prominent feature of REM sleep, dreams have also been reported from NREM sleep. Neuroimaging studies have revealed regional patterns of brain activation and deactivation during REM and NREM sleep, with frontal and posterior parietal cortices implicated as brain regions involved in dreaming. From our recent stage 2 study it was revealed that tDCs of these brain regions during this stage of sleep resulted in an increase in reported dream imagery
