I's ain't here to refute that one component of dreaming is to promote learning and retention. What I will dispute is that the study is subjective in nature (obviously). :)
I know when I've dreamed. When I'm lucky, I know when I'm entering REM sleep. I also remember most of my dreams for a few minutes upon waking up.
To date, I have not had more dreams before/during/after sleep with regards to Italian plumbers, hyperactive hedgehogs, saving princesses, slitting throats, or ninjas. However, there has been a marked increase in well endowed, scantily clad women.
