      Research by the University of Lincoln: lucid dreamers show greater insight in waking life

      Experts from the University of Lincoln, UK, say that those who experience lucid dreaming can solve problems in the waking world better than those who remain unaware of the dream until they wake up: lincoln.ac.uk/news/2014/08/938.asp.

      The research by Dr Patrick Bourke, Senior Lecturer at the Lincoln School of Psychology, is the first empirical study demonstrating the relationship between lucid dreaming and insight.

      He said: “It is believed that for dreamers to become lucid while asleep, they must see past the overwhelming reality of their dream state, and recognise that they are dreaming. The same cognitive ability was found to be demonstrated while awake by a person’s ability to think in a different way when it comes to solving problems.”

      Hey there, great to see that our work is getting some attention. I was a participant in this research. There's also some coverage by the Wall Street Journal, in which I get a mention too. The Benefits of Lucid Dreaming - WSJ

      By the way, I have a paper in review for publication too. Not actually about lucid dreaming per se, but I'll put up a link if it gets published.

      Congrats on the work and all the mentions!

      I also saw it in the American Psychological Association's journal: http://psycnet.apa.org/?&fa=main.doi....1037/a0036908.

      What is the paper in review about?

      My paper is my dissertation (http://www.dreamviews.com/research/1...xperience.html).
      I submitted it to the International Journal of Dream Research, next issue due in October.
