Abstract

Laboratory research indicated lower dream recall in children compared to young adults. However, the sample sizes of these studies are very small and the findings regarding home dream recall in larger studies are conflicting. The present study compared home dream recall frequency of 558 children (mean age about 10 yrs.) with a sample of young adults (mean age about 23 yrs) and found a marked lower dream recall frequency in children. Longitudinal studies with sufficient sample size are necessary to validate this cross-sectional finding.
