What is the science behind lucid dreams? To summarize, the findings on power suggest that lucidity occurs in a hybrid state with some features of REM (δ and θ) and some features of waking (γ) and that the frontal and frontolateral regions of the brain play a key role in gaining lucid insight into the dream state and agentive control.
What does lucid dreams do to your brain? The two researchers found that during lucid dreaming, there is increased activity in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, the bilateral frontopolar prefrontal cortex, the precuneus, the inferior parietal lobules, and the supramarginal gyrus.
Do lucid dreams actually work? But the dream feels vivid and real. You may even be able to control how the action unfolds, as if you’re directing a movie in your sleep. Studies suggest that about half of people may have had at least one lucid dream. But they probably don’t happen often, usually only a handful of times in a year.
