dc.description.abstractUsed 103 dream diaries collected in 2 experiments with psychology students/volunteers to examine whether dream incorporations of an important daytime event would occur after temporal delays of up to 7 days. Analysis showed a 6-day delay between event occurrence and dream incorporation. Variations in incorporation were found to follow a sinusoidal pattern. Results implicate dream incorporation in the learning consolidation functions of REM sleep.
