Abstract

This is a consideration of possible issues in using expert versus trained dream coders. Our thesis is that due to their lifetime training, expert coders would be more aware of subtle aspects of their area of their expertise in dreams. Two domains are discussed video games and religious/spiritual experience in dreams.
