A special laboratory at the university is busy only at night. It is a dream laboratory
where researchers are at work studying dreamers .Their findings have shown that everyone dreams from three to seven times a night, although in ordinary life a person may remember none or only one of his dreams. While the subjects-usually students –are asleep, special
machines record their brains’ waves and eye movements as well as the body movements that signal the end of a dream. Surprisingly all subjects sleep soundly.
Observers report that a person usually fidgets before a dream. Once the dream has started, his body relaxes and his eyes become more active, as if the curtain had gone up on a show. As
soon as the machine indicates that the dream is over, a buzzer(蜂鸣器) wakes up the sleeper. He
sits up , records his dream and goes back to sleep, perhaps to dream some more.
Researchers have found that if the dreamer is wakened immediately after his dream, he can usually recall the entire dream. If he is allowed to sleep even five more minutes, his memory of the dream will have gone out.
