The epistemological-methodological constraints for an approach to dream as an object of scientific-experimental investigation are pointed out, along with the suggestion of a new memory paradigm, that utilizes the linguistic convention ('word play') proposed by Wittgenstein. A model of dream generation is proposed, in which mnemonic materials activated from long-term memory stores enter the dream production system (bottom-up process); such materials are elaborated and interpreted by a top-down… Expand
Consciousness during Dreams
TLDR
While phenomenal experience and self-awareness are usually present during dreaming, meta-awareness is usually absent (apart from some particular experiences of self-reflectiveness) with the major exception of lucid dreaming. Expand
One possible function of sleep: to produce dreams
  • M. Mancia
  • Medicine, Psychology
  • Behavioural Brain Research
  • 1995
TLDR
The author puts forward a cognitive hypothesis, which considers dreams as a symbolic process of elaborating, interpreting and reorganizing in narrative sequences all the material accumulated in the memory during waking hours, and proposes a psychoanalytical model of dreaming. Expand
Conscious Modulation in Normal Sleep
The phenomenological relationship between consciousness and sleep are reviewed. Consciousness has a self- reflexive component, and while sleeping that is not working as in awakenings. The necessityExpand

To what extent do neurobiological sleep-waking processes support psychoanalysis?
  • C. Gottesmann
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • International review of neurobiology
  • 2010
TLDR
There are active processes that suppress (repress) unwanted memories from entering consciousness, and the quasi-closed dogma of psychoanalytic theory as related to unconscious processes is beginning to find neurobiological confirmation during waking. Expand
Neurobiology of consciousness: an overview
  • J. Delacour
  • Medicine, Psychology
  • Behavioural Brain Research
  • 1997
TLDR
The neurobiological approach may improve the general concepts of consciousness, overcome their antinomies and, against epiphenomenalism, definitely establish the reality of consciousness. Expand
Defining the states of consciousness
TLDR
This work addresses the question of a more precise terminology for concepts like consciousness, vigilance, arousal and alertness as candidates to separate functional entities and proposes different definitions for these concepts. Expand
The sequential hypothesis of the function of sleep
In addition to modulatory roles concerning bodily functions, sleep is assumed to play a main processing role with regard to newly acquired neural information. Elaboration of memory traces acquiredExpand

The brain as a dream state generator: an activation-synthesis hypothesis of the dream process.
TLDR
The authors suggest that the automatically activated forebrain synthesizes the dream by comparing information generated in specific brain stem circuits with information stored in memory. Expand

The concepts of nonlocal, or distributed, cortical and cognitive activation are examined for their usefulness in describing the relations between sleep and waking neurocognitive processes. Changes inExpand
REM sleep dreams and the activation-synthesis hypothesis.
TLDR
The authors studied 104 dreams obtained from 14 subjects and quantified the formal aspects of the subjects' dream experiences by the following categories: movement in dreams, sensation, affect, dream bizarreness, and dream lucidity to show consistent with and supportive of the activation-synthesis hypothesis.

Slow wave sleep dreaming.
TLDR
It is found that REM reports were significantly longer than SWS reports and semantic knowledge was more frequently mentioned as a dream source for REM than for SWS dream reports, supporting the hypothesis that dreaming is a continuous process that is not unique to REM sleep. Expand

Self-representation in dream experiences during sleep onset and REM sleep.
TLDR
The Scoring System for Latent Structure was used to test three hypotheses regarding the degree of self-participation in dreams reported during sleep onset and rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, and the ratio of interactive to associative sentences would be significantly greater in REM than in SO.
