Understanding dreams and the dreaming brain has proven to be one of the most complex and enduring problems in the history of science. In early 20th century a new paradigm for understanding dreams emerged, based on complex structural theories of the psyche, particularly of the unconscious mind. Such philosophical and anthropological theories are based on abstract models of higher-level cognitive and emotional functions of the brain, where symbols, metaphors and latent meanings of dreams play important roles.
