When Thoughts Run Out of Control: The Vicissitudes of Falling Asleep
Time and Location
Saturday May 27, 2006, 9:00 AM - 10:20 AM
What are the consequences of losing control over one’s thoughts in dreamlike mentation? The symposium will address this issue by presenting research on mindwandering, hypnagogic mentation, and dreams. Special attention will be given to suppression-induced rebound effects that might underlie clinical symptoms such as insomnia and posttraumatic nightmares.
