Dreaming Brain: How the Brain Create Both the Sense and the Nonsense of Dreams

J. Allan Hobson, Author Basic Books $30 (336p) ISBN 978-0-465-01702-7
``Dismissing both Freudian and Jungian dream analysis as unscientific, Hobson claims dreams are the vast maintenance task of the brain . In his physiological theory, sensory and motor signals generated by the brain during sleep are the driving forces behind the dream plot; the sleeper's past experiences, wishes and attitudes then come into play, shaping the dream material,'' reported PW.
