    Not a Neurologist, but I do know dreaming normally occurs in deep sleep and that Random Eye Movements (REM sleep) are usually indicative of that. I would think the visual cortex would be involved. This might be a better topic for research than discussion and although medicine is a science I am not sure how many medical doctors hang around.

    Maybe if a mod moved this to biology area you might find better answers.

    In deep sleep, all the brain-centers, that normally are in constant communication with each other, become stand-alone.
