Topic: Mind Science Funding in Action! Ken Paller’s Real-Time Communication With Lucid Dreamers
Ken Paller (Northwestern University) and his team published a paper last week based on research he presented to our audience as a BrainStorm 2018 finalist. We are thrilled to be a part of funding this important work that finds you can have a real-time conversation with a lucid dreamer. “We have thus gained knowledge about the cognitive abilities that can be engaged during a dream. In this way, further research along these lines will hopefully reveal more about dreaming conscious experiences and how they may differ from waking conscious experiences,” Dr. Paller tells CNN. The team also hopes with future research they can learn more about why dreams happen and how they might be useful for mental function. Congratulations to Dr. Paller and his team!
