Sleep Disorders: The Dreaming Brain (Psychology)
Nobody knows where our minds travel while we sleep, but this series suggests a host of possible fantastical and bizarre mental destinations. The Dreaming Brain suggests that in sleep we can access a bank of knowledge barred to us when awake. The camera reveals how premonitions and telepathy, snatched from the realms of the unconscious, have had drastic impacts on the lives of those who have experienced them. Six Sense attempts to ascertain whether sleep opens a corridor to paranormal activity and telepathy, in a series of sleep deprivation experiments under the guidance of Dr Wiseman. Finally, Altered States looks at the plight of the parasomniac, continually caught between sleep and wakefulness, as well as a host of disorders that underline the importance of a good night’s sleep.
