There is much research regarding dreams and varied states of consciousness. When researching this topic, some questions to consider in your response may include: Why do we sleep? What types of patterns can be found when monitoring sleep activity? When are we most likely to “dream” and what causes dreams? Are there different types of dreams? What are common disorders associated with dreams/sleep patterns? What is the Hypnogogic State? Can we remember dreams? Can we control our dreams? When faced with big decisions/problems, why do people say “sleep on it” (indicate if there is any validity in this statement)?
