Applying electrical current to the brain, according to a study published online in Nature Neuroscience, induces “lucid dreaming,” in which the dreamer is aware that he is dreaming and can often gain control of the ongoing plot.
The findings are the first to show that inducing brain waves of a specific frequency produces lucid dreaming.
