While reading about the advances and the setbacks in mainstream dream science, it became apparent to Dr. Bijaoui that was missing in the scientific literature was a link according to dreaming in psychoanalysis.
Popular Dream Definition:
"A dream is the disguised manifestation of a repressed desire" (Freud, 1916-17) is still used today, although with different words.
New Dream Definition:
"Dreaming is a manifestation of a memory, disguised to a certain degree, which is triggered by a recent event, and expressed within a repeated cycle of pre-REM, REM, and post-REM sleep " (Bijaoui et al., 2018).
REM Sleep Paradox:
Solving the paradox also involved a new terminology for NON-Rem sleep to pre-REM and post-REM.
IT'S OFFICIAL! February 8, 2019, The International Journal of Dream Research accepted for publication Bijaoui et al. (2018) dream paper.
