Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
A survey of anomalous/paranormal experiences was carried out in two groups: readers of paranormal issues (RPT) (n= 432) and psychology undergraduate students (n=392). A questionnaire was devised in order to measure type and frequency of experiences and the degree of disturbance they generated. Over two thirds of the RPT respondents and half of the student respondents reported to have had telepathic experiences, ESP dreams, out-of-the-body experiences, and to have had spiritual contact. Almost two thirds of the respondents indicated that at least one of their experiences had been disturbing. Particularly, undergradiate students sample reported experiences such as poltergeist (p< .001) and spiritual possession (p=.0002) compared with RPT sample. An average significantly greater of experiences was obtained in RPT than the one for the students (M= 6.12 vs. 3.19, pdif <.0001).

Visual dream content, graphical representation and EEG alpha activity in congenitally blind subjects

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
It is currently claimed that congenitally blind do not have visual imagery and are therefore unable to present visual contents in their dreams. The aim of our study was to quantitatively evaluate the existence of visual imagery in born-blind dreams and to correlate it with objective measures, such as sleep EEG frequency components, namely with alpha attenuation (regarded as an indicator of visual activity), and graphical analysis of dream pictorial representations. The investigation was carried out via simultaneous recordings of dream reports and polysomnography, during nocturnal sleep at volunteers' homes; scheduled regular awakenings during the night provided the data for dream and EEG analysis. In the morning, subjects were asked to make a drawing of their dream images. Congenitally blind (n=10) were comparable to normal sighted subjects (n=9): the two groups presented equivalent visual activity indices, and no differences in the analysis of graphical representation of dreaming imagery. However, blind subjects presented a lower rate of dream recall than sighted (27% versus 42%). Both groups had significant negative correlation between Visual Activity Index (VAI) and alpha power in the central and occipital O2 derivations (blind: C4: r=-0.615, P<0.005; O2: r=-0.608, P<0.006; sighted: C4: r=-0.633, P<0.01; O2: r=-0.506, P<0.05). This correlation was weaker for the blind in O1 (r=-0.573, P<0.05) and non-existent for the sighted. Blind individuals have significantly lower alpha activity in the central derivation. In conclusion, the congenitally blind have visual content in their dreams and are able to draw it and, as expected, their VAI is negatively correlated with EEG alpha power.

History:
The BIAL Foundation was created in 1994 by Laboratórios BIAL in conjunction with the Council of Rectors of Portuguese Universities. BIAL’s Foundation mission is to foster the scientific study of Man from both the physical and spiritual perspectives.
Along the years the BIAL Foundation has developed an important relationship with the scientific community, first in Portugal and after worldwide. Today it is an institution of reference which aims to stimulate new researches that may help people, promote more health and contribute to new milestones to gain access to knowledge.
Among its activities the BIAL Foundation manages the BIAL Award, created in 1984, one of the most important awards in the Health field in Europe. The BIAL Award rewards both the basic and the clinical research distinguishing works of major impact in medical research.
The BIAL Foundation also assigns Scientific Research Scholarships for the study of neurophysiological and mental health in people, arousing the interest of researchers in the areas of Psychophysiology and Parapsychology.
To date the BIAL Foundation has supported 461 projects, more than 1000 researchers, with research groups in twenty-seven countries, resulting, until April 2013, in about 600 full papers, out of which 172 published in indexed international journals with an average impact factor of 3.6 and a substantial number of citations (1665).
Since 1996 the BIAL Foundation organizes the Symposia entitled "Behind and Beyond the Brain", a Forum that gathers well renowned neurosciences speakers and the BIAL Foundation Fellows which are spread around the world.
Classified as an institution of public utility, the BIAL Foundation includes among its patrons the Portuguese President, the Portuguese Universities Rectors' Council and the Portuguese Medical Association.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
It is currently claimed that congenitally blind do not have visual imagery and are therefore unable to present visual contents in their dreams. The aim of our study was to quantitatively evaluate the existence of visual imagery in born-blind dreams and to correlate it with objective measures, such as sleep EEG frequency components, namely with alpha attenuation (regarded as an indicator of visual activity), and graphical analysis of dream pictorial representations.
The investigation was carried out via simultaneous recordings of dream reports and polysomnography, during nocturnal sleep at volunteers’ homes; scheduled regular awakenings during the night provided the data for dream and EEG analysis. In the morning, subjects were asked to make a drawing of their dream images.
Congenitally blind (n=10) were comparable to normal sighted subjects (n=9): the two groups presented equivalent visual activity indices, and no differences in the analysis of graphical representation of dreaming
imagery. However, blind subjects presented a lower rate of dream recall than sighted (27% versus 42%).
Both groups had significant negative correlation between Visual Activity Index (VAI) and alpha power in the central and occipital O2 derivations (blind: C4: r=-0.615, P<0.005; O2: r=-0.608, P<0.006; sighted: C4: r=-
0.633, P<0.01; O2: r=-0.506, P<0.05). This correlation was weaker for the blind in O1 (r=-0.573, P<0.05) and non-existent for the sighted. Blind individuals have significantly lower alpha activity in the central derivation. In conclusion, the congenitally blind have visual content in their dreams and are able to draw it and, as expected, their VAI is negatively correlated with EEG alpha power.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Objectives: Illusory own-body perception (IOBPs) such as out of body experiences (OBEs) and
distortion of body parts have attracted most interest when reported by patients suffering cardiac
arrest and near death experiences, but they have also been reported to occur spontaneously in
patients with epilepsy or migraine, during dreams and have been induced by electrical stimulation
of the right temporoparietal junction (TPJ). However, the neurophysiological mechanisms involved
in such illusory body perceptions remain elusive. Until now there have been worldwide only three
patients, in which direct electrical stimulation of the cortex induced OBEs (for a review s. Ridder et
al. 2007, N Engl J Med). The aim of this study was therefore to investigate in a larger sample under
which conditions transcranial cortex stimulation can induce IOBPs.
Methods: In several experiments MRI-neuronavigated transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and
transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) were applied over specific brain regions in awake and
in sleeping subjects. Continuous EEG recording was used to verify different sleep stages and to
investigate neural correlates of IOBPs.
Results: Most remarkably, we found that only inhibition of the TPJ induced IOBPs in awake
subjects. Neither high-frequency TMS of the TPJ nor low-frequency TMS of a control site induced
such effects. Thus, our effects were area and frequency specific. Although none of our subjects
reported OBEs, low-frequency TMS of the TPJ could induce illusory own body perceptions such as
twitching sensations and illusory movements of body parts. Spectral EEG analyses revealed that
IOBPs could only be induced, if the deactivation of the TPJ was associated with the deactivation of
the frontopolar cortex.
Conclusions: Our data imply that the impairment of a temporoparietal and a frontal network is
necessary for IOBPs. In a further study we investigated the effects of tDCS during sleep on ownbody
perception in dream reports. Compared with sham stimulation, a significant decrease in the
subjective estimate of the amount of movements in the dream before awakening from REM sleep
was found only after inhibitory tDCS.
Discussion: These studies reveal novel approaches for probing the neurobiology of IOBPs in the
awake and the sleeping mind and might provide new insights in understanding the
pathophysiology of neuropsychiatric disorders associated with abnormal own-body perceptions.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Aspects of attachment insecurity have gained interest in association of sleep parameters, especially sleep disorders. Most studies are carried out on children using subjective measures of sleep assessed by parents. Little attention is given to REM sleep and dreams in relation to attachment security, which could provide a reasonable association considering the presumed role of REM sleep and dreams in emotion regulation and offline emotional reprocessing. According to some studies, daytime distress and trait anxiety measures are directly associated with sleep features and dream emotions, especially nightmare frequency. If attachment
insecurity is related to dream affects and negative dream frequency is investigated in this study. Results showed significant connections between negative dream affect and attachment categories, which was especially true for preoccupied and fearful attachment, both characterized by high attachment anxiety. According to post hoc testing attachment groups with high attachment anxiety differed significantly from the groups with low attachment anxiety. Attachment anxiety turned out to be connected to nightmare frequency and the intensity of dream affect’s impact on daytime mood. As attachment insecurity is associated with less effective emotional and behavioral responses to stress, poorer coping mechanisms and altered illness behavior, results can be interpreted as the appearance of these qualities in nighttime symptoms. Diminished coping with negative emotions or enhanced negativity in subjects with high attachment anxiety could emerge in form of negative dreaming and higher nightmare frequency. As a consequence, negative dream emotions turn down daytime mood, which is less likely to be regulated by compensatory coping mechanisms. Early traumatization might be a mediator between attachment and nightmares, as both nightmares and insecure attachment are often connected to early trauma of the child. Another possible explanation of the connection between attachment anxiety and negative dreams is rooted in McNamara’s attachment theory of REM sleep, which describes diversified evidence to support the essential role of REM sleep in the conformation and subsistence of attachment behavior.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND
There have been claims throughout history that the consideration of dreams can result in personal realizations and insight.
AIM
To assess insight resulting from discussing Rapid Eye Movement (REM) and non-REM stage 2 (N2) dreams collected in the sleep laboratory, with discussion of daydreams as a control, and electrophysiological correlates of insight.
METHOD
31 participants slept in the sleep laboratory and were awakened for REM and N2 dream reports, and cued for a daydream report. Participants discussed their dream and daydream reports with experimenters who had not been involved in collecting the dreams and daydreams, and scored the discussions for insight obtained.
RESULTS
There were no insight differences between discussing REM and N2 dreams. Discussing dreams led to higher scores on the exploration-insight measure than did discussing daydreams. The differences were related to the learning of what the report means in terms of waking life issues.
CONCLUSIONS
Despite electrophysiological and functional differences between REM and N2 sleep, dreams from these stages did not differ in exploration-insight scores, but did exceed exploration-insight for the discussion of daydreams. Daydreams did not show the memory-consolidation related delayed incorporation of waking life events that has been found for REM dreams (van Rijn et al., 2016, 2018). A second main paper is under review, with preliminary results in Blagrove et al. (2016) of significant electrophysiological correlates of EEG theta and insight scores for N2 dreams, in addition to the between condition insight results. Dream insight might result from functional sleep processes, or from non-functional decreased control of cognition during dreams.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Thirty one participants (15 female, 16 male) slept in the sleep laboratory and were woken 10 minutes into REM and N2 sleep for
dream reports. Participants also gave a daydream report before falling asleep. All participants later discussed their dream and
daydream reports with two experimenters who had not been involved in the report collection. Each discussion took 30–40 min and followed the standard Ullman method of group dream discussion (Edwards et al., 2013, 2015, Front Psychol), which aims to identify and explore recent waking life sources for dream content. After each discussion participants completed the 14-item Gains from Dream Interpretation (GDI) questionnaire (Heaton et al., 1998, J Couns Psychol). The GDI exploration-insight subscale assesses discovery of recent waking life mnemonic sources of the dream and also personal insight about waking life that results from the dream discussion, and is adapted here to cover dream and daydream discussions. There were no exploration-insight differences between discussing REM and N2 dream reports, but, as hypothesised, discussing dreams did lead to significantly higher scores on exploration-insight than did discussing daydreams (means = 7.60 and 7.13 respectively, SDs = 0.88 and 0.99; P = 0.002). Dream discussions were scored significantly higher than daydream discussions on questionnaire items: ‘I learned things
that I would not have thought of on my own’ (P = 0.002); ‘I learned more about what this (day) dream meant for me personally during the session’ (P < 0.001); and, ‘I learned more about issues in my waking life from working with the (day) dream’ (P < 0.05).

Emotion regulation as reflected in children’s dreams – A developmental test of the neurocognitive dream theory
Publication year: 2016

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
INTRODUCTION
Although REM sleep plays an important role in neural maturation, developmental aspects of dream research are relatively neglected compared to studies focusing on adults. Adult research found that REM sleep and dreams take certain roles in emotional adaptation, including the processing of emotional events, consolidation of emotional memories and the downregulation of reactions to dysphoric stimuli. These findings, however, are rarely discussed in a developmental perspective.
AIMS
We aim to test the neurocognitive dream theory developed by Nielsen and Levine (2007) by investigating the associations among abilities of waking emotional processing, behavioral manifestations of emotional problems and the emotional aspects of dreaming in children.
METHODS
We analyzed 349 dream reports of 40 children between the ages of 4 to 8 years. Dream emotions, emotional dream quality and the dreams’ effect on daytime’s mood were self-reported by the children. Wakeful emotional processing is measured by the Emotional Stroop Test for children, and emotional–behavioral problems were assessed by the parent version of the Strength and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ).
RESULTS
Results show that negative dream quality and the dreams’ effect on daytime mood are associated with negative emotional adaptation measured by the SDQ (t = .25, p = .031, t = .24, p = .041 respectively). Children with more emotional problems reported more dreams (t = .32, p = .004). Interestingly, we could not find relationship between dream emotions and waking emotional development measures.
CONCLUSION
Results support psychological models of dreaming assuming a role of dreams in emotional regulation and provide partial support for the plausibility of Levin and Nielsen’s neurocognitive theory in a developmental context. Further studies on emotional development and dreaming are needed to gain more insight in the generalizability of the connection between emotional processing during wakeful functioning and REM sleep.

Publication year: 2016

http://psycnet.apa.org/record/2016-13720-006
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The development of dreaming and its association with brain maturation and cognitive development are rarely studied in spite of adult studies showing a close relationship between dreaming and cognitive functioning. In order to bridge this gap in the literature we aimed to depict the associations between individual differences in neurocognitive maturation and the formal and content related characteristics of children’s dream reports. We analyzed the dream reports of 40 children between the ages of 4 to 8 years. Specific dream content categories, found to change significantly throughout development, were correlated with cognitive performance. To measure the latter we used neuropsychological tests (a modified version of the Fruit Stroop Test and Emotional Stroop Test for Children, and the Attention Network Test [ANT]) and intelligence tests (subscales of the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children [WISC–IV], and the Raven’s Colored Progressive Matrices [CPM]). Results suggest that the dreamer’s presence in their dreams (manifested in activities, interactions, self-effectiveness, willful effort, and cognitive reflections) indicates more effective executive control in waking life. The quality and content of these activities and interactions are correlated with the child’s capacities of emotional processing. Contrary to previous findings dream bizarreness and dream recall frequency were not associated with any cognitive indicators. Although in adult dream research the continuity of waking and dreaming cognition has been well-studied, our work is 1 of the first to explore the connection between children’s cognitive maturation and dreaming.
