Motor practice in lucid dreams is a form of mental rehearsal where the dreamer can con-sciously rehearse motor skills in the dream state while being physically asleep (Erlacher, Stumbrys & Schredl, 2011). A previous pilot study showed that practice in lucid dreams can improve subsequent performance (Erlacher & Schredl, 2010). This study aimed to replicated those findings with a different (serial reaction) task (finger-tapping; e.g. Walker et al., 2002) and compare the effectiveness of lucid dream practice not only to physical but also to mental practice in wakefulness.
