Lucid dream science has come a long way in the last 40 years, ever since it was first proven in the laboratory. In the last decade, research has accelerated further with creative use of fMRI brain scans on lucid dreamers
This kind of research is set to continue. As lucid dreaming becomes a household term, more people are learning to lucid dream and study participants are more easily recruited. Early technologies have even emerged which allow us to stimulate lucidity with electrical currents and crudely "record" our dreams as they occur.
Lucid dream research out of Frankfurt has revealed lucid dreams to take place at gamma band brainwave frequencies.
An electrifying experiment has revealed a way to artificially induce lucid dreams as much as 77% of the time. Is this a silver bullet for lucid dreaming?

In a 2015 study, researchers have taught people how to lucid dream and, in combination with role playing Gestalt therapy, overcome their nightmares.
