Ep8. What Happens When I Forget My Dreams?

Season 1, Ep. 8

In this episode we acknowledge and explore why some people seem likely to remember many more dreams than others, both in terms of memory features and characteristics of dreams. Some dreams are simply more recallable than others, and some people are more likely to forget their dreams than remember them.

Whilst we all seem comparably likely to function well in our waking lives whether we remember our dreams or not, we learn that we still need to sleep in order to have the opportunity to dream.

Two guests this week, fellow psychologists Dr’s Alyson Blanchard and Tom Dunn from Bishop Grosseteste University, tell me about their sleep and dream recall patterns, and how they think they can make sense of them.
