A new study has suggested that playing video games before bed can increase dream awareness and control.
The research is thought to provide a new role for video games in fighting sleep problems such as nightmares, people who play games beforehand seem to have an increased ability to determine what happens within their dreams.
Playing video games before bedtime may give people an unusual level of awareness and control in their dreams, LiveScience has learned. That ability to shape the alternate reality of dream worlds might not match mind-bending Hollywood films such as "The Matrix," but it could provide an edge when fighting nightmares or even mental trauma.
