Haley Schramm, Why Do People Dream?
Transcript of Haley Schramm, Why Do People Dream?
When you dream, it is a special mental experience. They feel so real that it feels like a time when something actually happened. The body acts and reacts when the person is dreaming, but the body stays asleep quietly. Dreams are remembered a lot more accurately after waking up immediately during the night rather than in the morning. When using an electroencephalograph, during REM sleep periods, it has been established that everyone normally dreams at night.

Dreams are sequences of images that are experienced by the mind during sleep. Scientists think that dreams are just natural occuring processes in the brain. But, like all mental processes, dreaming is the product of activity that is in the brain. Whether the dreamer is asleep or awake, the brain produces many electrical waves. With an instrument called an electroencephalograph, scientists measure these waves.
WHAT DREAMS ARE
The word 'nightmare' originally comes from the Old English word, 'mare'. A mare is an evil female spirit or goblin. When someone had a bad dream, according to European folklore, it is believed that a mare would sit on the person's chest while they slept, causing them to have the terrifying dream.
