Daydreaming and dreams during sleep may be related, but different cognitive processes seem to be at work, too, according to psychologists.

Daydreams

(dreams)

In contrast to sleep research, there has been comparatively little systematic study of what are commonly referred to as daydreams, because “daydreams” can include everything from fairly structured fantasies to the series of disconnected images that emerge during relaxed free association. Clearly, there is a relationship between daydreams and regular dreams, but investigators in this area have hypothesized that somewhat different and perhaps independent cognitive processes are at work.
