Frequently lucid dreamer, I was looking up dreaming. Wondered if I’d see greater “right IFG” connectivity as I did with other things I’d looked at – and yup: there it is. “individuals who reported lucid dreams spontaneously approximately every other night or more had increased resting-state functional connectivity between the left anterior prefrontal cortex (aPFC) and the bilateral angular gyrus (AG), bilateral middle temporal gyrus (MTG) and right inferior frontal gyrus (IFG). The frequent lucid dream group also showed decreased functional connectivity between left aPFC and bilateral insula. Whole-brain graph-theoretic analysis revealed that left aPFC had increased node degree and strength in the frequent lucid dream group compared to the control group.” https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-018-36190-w
