Segments in this Video

Discovering Desires (02:46)


In dreams the impossible becomes possible. Dr. Daru Huppert explains why Sigmund Freud was interested in childhood dreams. The Greeks believed dreams were the language of the gods.

Freud's Interpretation of Dreams (04:52)

The dream narrative is the manifest dream while the latent dream is the dreamer's interpretation. The dream wish is the essence of the person that does not manifest itself.

Dream in Images (02:18)

Dreams inspire singers, chemists, and writers. Freud believed that unconscious desires played a role in dreams. During rapid eye movement sleep, the limbic system is active, but the frontal cortex is quiet.

Nightmares (04:23)

Evacuation dreams repeat images in sequence and wake the sleeper. Nightmares are an emotional conflict that has been avoided during the conscious state. During lucid dreaming, the dreamer can actively change the dream to be less scary.

Regulating Feelings (06:00)

Dreams determine our sleep quality and show us ongoing conflicts, ones we have not dealt with, and a glimpse into the future. Gerald Pail theorizes that dreams indicate whether we can think and fantasize. Dreams provide a virtual reality.
