actual science about 9/11's effect on people [Feb. 9th, 2008|07:44 am]

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:

Results:

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."
