Abstract (summary)
Responds to S. Roll's (1995) charge of reductionism concerning the authors' finding of a parallel between patterns of delayed incorporation of events into dreams of humans and REM sleep patterns of rats (see record 1996-16368-001 ). Also, it is argued that the disruption-avoidance-adaptation model by J. Wright and D. Koulack (1987) explains better the dream-lag effect than Roll's psychoanalytic model of repression and repetition compulsion.
