Decoding Your Dreams

Dreaming is one of the most interesting things humans do…in my opinion anyways! Some people remember them and some do not. But even then, some recall them vividly, while others only remember bits and pieces.

Gary Popoli, Ph.D. was asked to discuss dreams on Better TV. Dr. Popoli is an adjunct professor for the department; his concentration is in human development.

In his interview, Dr. Popoli explains how often you dream and when dreaming occurs in your sleep cycle. A really interesting part of the interview is when he talks about common dreams that people have and then explains what the dreams mean. Some of the most common dreams are: being chased, falling, teeth falling out, partner cheating, and flying!

Check out Dr. Popoli’s interview.
