A lucid dream is any dream in which one is aware that one is dreaming. The term was coined by the Dutch psychiatrist and writer Frederik (Willem) van Eeden (1860–1932).

[ 3 ] It is shown that there are higher amounts of beta-1 frequency band (13–19 Hz) experienced by lucid dreamers, hence there is an increased amount of activity in the parietal lobes making lucid dreaming a conscious process.

Key Fact: Lucid dreams are more enjoyable than ordinary dreams and have a more positive emotional tone. If you're a particularly sad soul, and would take absolutely no pleasure from flying round the world, meeting famous people, fighting dinosaurs, or walking on water, oh yes - and sex, then there is still hope for you!
