Dream Theories

Can we discuss the 3 dream theories: activation synthesis, information processing, and psychoanalytic dream theory?

Activation synthesis = dreams occur due to random brain activity while sleeping

Information processing = helps us consolidate and and make sense of the days’ events

Psychoanalytic = lets us fulfill feelings and actions that may be undesirable if actually lived out
