Why We Dream / Ο κόσμος των ονείρων

Groundbreaking science is putting dreams at the forefront of new research into sleep, memory, the concept of self and human socialization. Once a subject of the New Age and spiritualism, the science of dreams is revealed to have a crucial role in the biology and neuroscience of our waking lives.
In Why We Dream, Alice Robb, a leading American science journalist, will take readers on a journey to uncover why we dream, why dreaming matters, and how we can improve our dream life – and why we should. Through her encounters with scientists at the cutting edge of dream research, she reveals how:
– Dreams can be powerful tools to help us process the pain of a relationship break-up, the grief of losing a loved one and the trauma after a dramatic event
– Nightmares may be our body’s warning system for physical and mental illness (including cancer, depression and Alzheimer’s)
– Athletes can improve their performance by dreaming about competing
– Drug addicts who dream about drug-taking can dramatically speed up their recovery from addiction.
Robb also uncovers the fascinating science behind lucid dreaming – when we enter a dream state with control over our actions, creating a limitless playground for our fantasies. And as one of only ten per cent of people with the ability to lucid-dream, she is uniquely placed to teach us how to do it ourselves.

Μπορούν άραγε τα όνειρα να βελτιώσουν τις επιδόσεις μας στη δουλειά ή τις σπουδές μας; Μπορούν να μας βοηθήσουν να ξεπεράσουμε το πένθος ή έναν χωρισμό;
Μπορούν ακόμη να μας ειδοποιήσουν εγκαίρως ότι κάτι δεν πάει καλά στην υγεία μας;
Τι είναι τα συνειδητά όνειρα και πώς μπορούμε να επωφεληθούμε από αυτά;
