Example text

Most dreams experienced over the course of a night are quite ordinary. There are exceptions, where external stimuli, such as noises or tactile stimulation, can become incorporated into dreams.

Except for some decrease in the clarity of background detail and color saturation, visual dream imagery resembles waking visual imagery. Like waking imagery, most dreams are in color.

Except for the relatively rare lucid dreams in which we know we are dreaming, all dream images seem real.

When signals from the RAS slow down so that the cerebral cortex is deprived of activating input, a person may lapse into sleep. For this reason, we find it easy to go to sleep, even when we are not particularly tired, if there is nothing interesting to occupy the mind. But although we tend to be wakeful in the presence of attention-holding stimuli, there is a limit beyond which sleep is inevitable.
