Notes

Abstract: This study looked at the relationship between impulsivity and dreaming. Both are mediated, in part, through the actions of serotonin. However, no research to date has looked at how they interact. Participants (n = 39) for this study filled out the BIS-11. In addition they filled out a Dream Survey asking about dream qualities over the two weeks prior to the study, and were asked to keep a Dream Journal for two weeks. Results from the Survey suggest that Attentional Impulsivity is significantly related to the Amount of Sound reported in dreams, and that Motor and Nonplanning Impulsivity are significantly related to the reported Meaningfulness of dreams. Analysis suggests that these relationships are independent of one another, and might reflect different underlying neural processes. Dream Journals (n = 12) did not correlate significantly with Impulsivity, and did not significantly correlate with Dream Surveys, casting doubt on the validity of the dependent measures.
