Decent Essays
“Memories are the of dreams” (Baylor and Cavallero) In a study entitled, Memory of dreams: the incorporation of autobiographical rather than episodic experiences” by the University of Bedfordshire, states that the subject you see in you dreams are based on your “waking-life” memories. (Horton p. 441) In the study, they focused on whether people with anterograde amnesia remembers information about themselves more or the events that he experienced. The study showed that episodic memories were dreamt of more. Furthermore, it also showed that the dreams we see are just a mere interpretation of real life experience. (Horton p. 444) Dreams are commonly about experiences-- the people you’ve met, the places you’ve been to, or something you’ve done.
