Sleep and Dreaming is a compilation of papers, critical reviews, and commentaries published from 2000 to 2002 in the journal Behavioral and Brain Sciences that assess the “relationship of dreaming to brain physiology and neurochemistry and the possible functions, or lack of functions, of REM [rapid eye movement] sleep and of dreaming”(ix).
