All Relations between prefrontal cortex and lucid dreaming

||topographically, dreams are characterized by a shift towards increased activity and connectivity in the default-mode network (dmn) while they are reduced in the central executive network, including the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (except in lucid dreaming).

||rem periods with lucid dreaming show increased brain activation, especially in the prefrontal cortex, compared to rem periods without lucid dreaming and, thus, the question of whether lucid dreaming interferes with the recovery function of sleep arises.

||the neurobiological basis of lucid dreaming is unknown, but evidence points to involvement of anterior prefrontal cortex (apfc) and parietal cortex.

||awareness of dreaming while a dream is happening defines lucid dreaming (ld), a state in which the prefrontal cortex is more active than during regular dreaming.
