Lucid dreaming provides an opportunity for people to learn more about dreams and sleep, and the study on lucid dreaming is a growing field of research in psychology. The physiology of lucid dreaming contributed to understanding areas like brain connectivity and provided opportunities to reveal mechanisms under cognitive functions such as Metacognition. Lucid dreaming therapy (LTD) might provide an alternative solution to mental disorders such as posttraumatic stress disorders (PTSD). Lucid dreaming also opens more windows in sleep studies where researchers might receive real-time feedback from participants. While there are still debates around lucid dreaming, this is a growing field of research that would contribute to many areas in psychology.
