This study focuses on sleep and consciousness during sleep to see what the effect of consciousness is on the appearance of dreams and lucid dreams. Dreams seem to be experienced the most during REM sleep, but they also appear during non-REM sleep. Thanks to neuroimaging, the activation and deactivation of brain areas during REM sleep has been made visible. The (de)activation of certain areas might give a possible explanation of some of the features of dreams, such as emotionality, lack of control and visual elements. Consciousness during sleep is an interesting factor, that also can be related to (de)activation of certain brain areas. Lucid dreaming is an interesting example of the coherence of consciousness and dreaming.
