There has certainly been plenty of discussion in the media about how it affected |
people, but much that I've seen has been handwaving. Some actual science from the Journal of Sleep:
Dreams after 9/11 showed a highly significant increase in central image intensity, as well as central image proportion (number of dreams with scorable central images) but no change in dream length, dream-likeness, overall vividness, or content involving airplanes or tall buildings. There were no “exact replay” dreams picturing the actual events of 9/11 seen repeatedly on TV."
