Keep Dreamin’ If dreams are recorded immediately after waking, will the amount of dreams a person can remember increase over time? In this study, the researcher examined whether the proposed method of writing down dreams increases the amount of dreams a person can remember over time. The researcher intentionally tried to remember her dreams, writing down the main idea of what was remembered each night for two weeks. As the researcher was falling asleep, she reminded herself that she wanted to remember what she dreamt. By taking a couple minutes to lie in bed after waking up on her own, or more often, after her alarm woke her up, the researcher allowed her mind to float back into her dreams and remember them. The researcher recorded the main points of her dreams in a dream journal immediately after waking. Dreams that were remembered throughout the day were also written down. After the two week period, the researcher quantified the data by word processing it and performing a word count on each day.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
