REMS Studies

The Problem of Tracing Emotions in Dream Content
  • Helen Block Lewis
Part of the Emotions, Personality, and Psychotherapy book series (EPPS)

Here REMS studies offer fascinating examples of the power of emotional stimuli to invade dream content, and of the usefulness of Freud’s translations of dream language into underlying affective content.
