Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. ANIMALS - Do animals have dreams, and if so, how do their dreams compare to human dreams?

Answer: Yes, and much like humans, animal dreams involve replaying actual events or components thereof.

Studies show that the brain patterns of animals during sleep states are similar to ours. In 2001, Matthew Wilson, an associate professor of brain and cognitive sciences at MIT's Center for Learning and Memory proved that animals have complex dreams closely connected to their waking experiences (see the Jan 25 issue of "Neuron"). Wilson monitored brain activity in rats during routine activities, and noted that brain activity in sleep states matched activity in waking states.

In fact, the brain patterns were so well correlated that he was able to determine the precise content of the dreams.
2. BRAIN TEASERS - Which of the following is NOT an anagram of the phrase, "dreams can come true"?

Answer: a comrade neuters me

In the incorrect choice, an 'e' replaces a 'c' (drEams Can ComE truE, a ComradE nEutErs mE). Perhaps the best anagram of the phrase is "consummated career".

Another interesting anagram relevant to the topic is "bad dream" which becomes "bed drama".
3. CELEBRITIES: Patrick Dempsey plays the role of a renowned brain surgeon, Dr. Derek Shepherd (alias McDreamy), in the ABC drama "Grey's Anatomy" (2005). What is the name of the hospital where the good doctor is employed?

Answer: Seattle Grace Hospital

Dempsey's character received the nickname, "McDreamy", from the female interns at Seattle Grace.

Dempsey was diagnosed with dyslexia at the age of twelve. He struggles to read the script, so he memorizes his lines before he can go on.

Fox Network's "House, M.D." (2004) is set at the Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital. "St. Eligius" is the setting for St. Elsewhere (1982), and "Scrubs" (2001) is set at the Sacred Heart hospital. Both of the latter shows were broadcast on NBC.
4. ENTERTAINMENT - Which of the following is a "Vertigo" (DC Comics) series featuring a protagonist called Dream?

Answer: The Sandman

"The Sandman" series, released in 75 issues from 1989 until 1996, is the creation of English author Neil Gaiman, who also produced the novels "Stardust" and "American Gods". In "The Sandman", Gaiman's protagonist personifies dream and all things not within the realm of reality. Dream is one of the "Seven Endless", beings both older and more powerful than the gods.

He has many names, some of which include Morpheus, The Sandman, and The Dream King.
5. FOR CHILDREN - Which of these titles is an autobiography presented to the younger audience?

Answer: Jacky Daydream

In "Jacky Daydream" (2007), bestselling author Jacqueline Wilson recounted her experiences from early childhood through pre-adolescence. Wilson focused on addressing real issues facing children, addressing her own difficult familial and interpersonal issues, and how she dealt with them.
6. GENERAL - During a nap at a scientific conference, Pawan Sinha had a rather peculiar dream, which became the inspiration for something quite remarkable that would catapult him into the "2003 Guinness Book of World Records". For what record is Mr. Sinha remembered?

Answer: tiniest book

Pawan Sinha was at the time an assistant professor of brain and cognitive sciences at MIT. He dreamed that he was writing the Bhagavad Gita on a grain of rice. Upon awaking, Sinha did some calculations, and eventually produced the world's tiniest book. The book is actually a copy of the King James New Testament printed onto a 5 millimeter tablet. The lines are so small, that the book is unreadable at anything less than 600x magnification. Each letter is as small as a red blood cell, and about ten lines of text would fit across a single strand of human hair.

Who would ever dream of tattooing their tongues? Apparently some people do!
7. GEOGRAPHY - Which of these is found in the Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado?

Answer: Dream Lake

Dream Lake is an alpine lake well-known for its stunning vistas. Dreamtime Boulder is a problem rock located in Switzerland. The other answers are fanciful creations I dreamed up.
8. HISTORY - Which American President famously dreamed about his own assassination?

Answer: Abraham Lincoln

The details of Lincoln's prophetic dream are recounted in "Recollections of Abraham Lincoln, 1847-1885" by his friend and bodyguard, Ward Hill Lamon.

"About ten days ago, I retired very late. I had been up waiting for important dispatches from the front. I could not have been long in bed when I fell into a slumber, for I was weary. I soon began to dream. There seemed to be a death-like stillness about me. Then I heard subdued sobs, as if a number of people were weeping. I thought I left my bed and wandered downstairs. There the silence was broken by the same pitiful sobbing, but the mourners were invisible. I went from room to room; no living person was in sight, but the same mournful sounds of distress met me as I passed along. It was light in all the rooms; every object was familiar to me; but where were all the people who were grieving as if their hearts would break?

I was puzzled and alarmed. What could be the meaning of all this? Determined to find the cause of a state of things so mysterious and so shocking, I kept on until I arrived at the East Room, which I entered.

There I met with a sickening surprise. Before me was a catafalque, on which rested a corpse wrapped in funeral vestments. Around it were stationed soldiers who were acting as guards; and there was a throng of people, some gazing mournfully upon the corpse, whose face was covered, others weeping pitifully. 'Who is dead in the White House?' I demanded of one of the soldiers 'The President' was his answer; 'he was killed by an assassin!' Then came a loud burst of grief from the crowd, which awoke me from my dream."

After President Lincoln was assassinated, his body was placed in a casket in the East Room of the White House. Two soldiers stood sentry as mourners twenty-five thousand strong paid their respects.
9. HOBBIES - Which company introduced the white chocolate Dream Bar?

Answer: Cadbury

Launched in some countries in 2001, the Cadbury Dream is a creamy English white chocolate with a delicate taste. It has been called "the adult's white chocolate".
10. HUMANITIES - Which artist gave us "Le Reve" (or "The Dream"), a portrayal of his mistress, Marie-Therese Walter?

Answer: Pablo Picasso

"The Dream" is one of Picasso's distorted works, and is important for its curves. As a surrealist, Picasso was no doubt fascinated by dreams and Freudian psychology. One of the themes of Freudian psychology is the notion that our unconscious sexuality expresses itself in our conscious lives. This thought seems to come out in Picasso's painting.
