Ep6. Where Do My Dreams Come From?

Season 1, Ep. 6

This week we consider the building blocks and sources of our dreams: our autobiographical memories, in other words, memories for our own personal experiences. We consider how dreams are organised from fragmentary elements of everyday waking life and re-combined to give dreams their characteristic emotionality and bizarreness.

Caroline speaks again to Amy Brennan, who considers the sources of dreams from her own dream diary.
