      Rubber Bands decreasing dream recall?

      I recently got rubber bands for my braces and, right as I got them, my dream recall decreased to fargments fragments. I didn't have them on last night, and I recalled two dreams.

      Taking them off every night is not an option, so do you guys have any tips on how I can increase my recall while I have these on?

      Not the rubberbands themselves. If its a source of stress though, it might be.
      And now.. for a Stephen Strutmeyer Film...

      It's not, though.
      I was mad at first, but now I'm over it.

      Correlation =/= causation. Probably a freak coincidence. I'm sure your recall will be back in no time.

      However, given the suceptability of LD's to the placebo effect, a believed correlation is sometimes enough.

      In other words, if you believe the rubber bands are screwing with your recall, they will.

      That's the approack I usually try to take to these sorts of problems (unless Of course I have reasonable suspicion that it's not just in my head). Sorry of a "free your mind" kind of thing.

      Placebo. I can't think of a possible reason why rubber bands could have an effect.

      Unless they are causing you discomfort or stress, there shouldn't be a direct link. However, the very fact that you made this thread shows that there is a psychological link, as people have mentioned.
