Studies of lucid dreamers show which centers of the brain become active when we become aware of ourselves in dreams. Which areas of the brain help us to perceive our world in a self-reflective manner is difficult to measure. During wakefulness, we are always conscious of ourselves. In sleep, however, we are not. But there are people, known as lucid dreamers, who can become aware of dreaming during sleep. Studies employing magnetic resonance tomography (MRT) have now been able to demonstrate that a specific cortical network consisting of the right dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, the frontopolar regions and the precuneus is activated when this lucid consciousness is attained. All of these regions are associated with self-reflective functions. This research into lucid dreaming gives the authors of the latest study insight into the neural basis of human consciousness.

Just testing to see if I can do this! Attempting to post this bracelet direct from my website. Fingers crossed!
Evidently, the photo doesn’t show automatically. I shall post it here from my computer.
No, can’t do that either! This is a definite learning curve!
PS - Tried again with photo URL. Has it worked?
Right then, it’s obviously better to upload photos from my computer than do the URL thingy. I’m learning!
Just testing out the photo adding bit now!
I’m just testing this out, really. I’m fumbling my way round Tumblr!
I need to get back links out there for my website so this will kill two birds with one stone!
