I've written some hubs on dreams and dream interpretation. Have a look if you're interested
Dreams are NOT the ones that you see while sleeping. Real Dreams are those that steal your sleep.
According to neural science dreams are the result of brain activity during the lack of external stimulation. The brain plays back, in a random fashion, the events of the previous day or thoughts that are unresolved. In essence the brain is replaying memories.
The hippo-campus, an area deep within the brain, is now thought to be an index to memory and dreams are an attempt by the brain's hippo-campus to make sense of the random replay of memory.
Dreams are images created in your subconscious mind. The part of the brain that is hidden for say. Their are many beliefs regarding dreams, but the scientific truth of the matter is that dreams are neurons that produce in a certain area of your brain. Everything effects this area, and can cause you to dream a variety of different things. Chemicals, stress factors, foods, etc. can effect how these chemicals produce into which will cause what you will dream. I hope this answers your question. k
Dreams are freaky cool man. What if you wake up screaming at someone?
In terms of interpretation, dreams are what you make of them. Freudians dream about their mothers and Jungians dream about mythological creatures. Those who believe dreams are random nonsense have the most boring dreams of them all. too bad for them.
In terms of science, dreams are typically defined as the memory we have of private experiences that occur in REM sleep, and also hypnagogia or sleep onset. In most REM dreams, the frontal cortex is not activated as much as in waking life, leading to less coherent narratives based on logic or the normal flow of time. Instead, due to an activation of the pons and also the limbic systems, dreams operate on emotional logic, which is a way of connecting long term memories with short term happenings. So by dreaming, we make connections between the past and the present, organized by our own sense of emotional coherence.
So it's best not to think of dreams as "messages" to the waking mind but rather spontaneous expressions or "process" that is part of learning and problem solving. We can focus on this ability - called dream incubation - and use our dreams to help us work through specific issues. Lucid dreaming is another way of honing the dreaming cognition by realizing you are dreaming within the dream, and successfully directing your attention to a topic of interest.
