Abstract (summary)
In a follow-up from Gackenbach and Kuruvilla (2008b), data analysis was undertaken examining the metacognitive qualities of video game players dreams associated with lucidity. Kahan and LaBerge’s (1994) MACE questionnaire responses were examined in a principle component factor analysis. Several factors loaded dream type and gaming variables along with items from the MACE. It was concluded that gaming may be associated with dream lucidity due to the enhanced problem solving quality of gamer’s dreams.
