Researchers say the gene therapy is not a cure, but it could greatly relieve the symptoms.

For the first time, scientists in Belgium have actually been able to watch WHAT the brain does during a dream.
(----------------)
VO-NAT


While patients slept, the researchers used sophisticated imaging techqniques to identify the parts of the brain that were turned on or off during a dream.
Watching the brain circuits interact, they were able to actually see the physical manifestations of brain activity.
They found one of the regions most active when we dream is the same one that's responsbile for emotions.
Also interesting is that the parts of the brain that give us a sense of time, and helps us remember things-- were turned off during dreaming.
That may help explain why we often can't remember our dreams when we wake up.
