There are several theories as to why we often cannot remember our dreams. One has to do with the hippocampus, which is part of the brain vital for transferring memories from short-term to long-term storage. During sleep, the brain’s regions turn off at different times, and one of the last to turn off is the hippocampus. If the hippocampus is the last to go to sleep, it may also be the last to wake up. According to Thomas Andrillon, a neuroscientist at Monash University, “You could have this window where you wake up with a dream in your short-term memory, but since the hippocampus is not fully awake yet, your brain is not able to keep that memory.”

There are two parts of mind . one is conscious and other is unconscious mind. when we are awake, our conscious mind is aware do reasoning, thinking and other important tasks like saving visuals and important memories in the hard disk of our mind.

when we sleep our conscious mind sleeps and we are not aware of any thing. our mind dont save visuals which we see in dream because our awareness is also lost as our conscious mind is responsible for saving visuals in our memory., we become so much unaware that we when we see dream we dont realize that its dream we thinks its reality. like we feel pain and fear in dreams.

when we wake up and as we realize it was dream our mind cancels all the visuals we see in our dreams.

but there are dreams which are so much strong that we remember one or 3 seconds visuals of our dreams. apart from that we cant recall or remember our dreams

WE FORGET almost all dreams soon after waking up. Our forgetfulness is generally attributed to neurochemical conditions in the brain that occur during REM sleep, a phase of sleep characterized by rapid eye movements and dreaming. ... The dreaming/reverie end involves some of the most creative and “far out” material.

you spend a third of your life asleep, a good chunk of which involves dreaming. But most often, you don't remember any of your dreams. And even on those lucky days when you wake up with a memory of the dream still floating in your mind, there's a good chance that in just a minute the memory will vanish into thin air and back to dreamland.

In waking life, such a case of quickly forgetting recent experiences would surely land you in a doctor's office. With dreams, however, forgetting is normal. Why?

There is a simple answer to this. Like a computer, mind has a RAM and ROM. Hard drive and temporary drive. The dreams are done in the sub conscience and hence when you wake up, it has hardly any recollection.

Dreaming is most closely associated with the sleep state known as Rapid Eye Movement. Medications may suppress REM sleep.

I believe, the main reason we have trouble remembering our dreams, is that dreams are not "real memories". There is little emotion involved, which is the opposite reason, highly emotional real life events are so memorable!

It depends on how you wake up. If you gradually wake slowly then you will be able to remember the dream but if you you are jolted awake then you will forget the dream instantly.

Not for a long time but yes, you can remember your dream until the morning you woke up. Why? Because when you are dreaming you are in an unconscious state (sleeping).

This is a great question. But I guess not everyone cannot remember their dreams. Because some of the people remember it once they wake up.

Because the dream world and the real world are two different things. And since the real world is more vivid, its reality overcomes the dream world.

One of the recent discoveries about marijuana smoking is that it affects memory, not short term memory, but dream memory. People who smoke pot regularly have trouble remembering your dreams.

Freud theorized that we forget our dreams because they contain our repressed thoughts and wishes and so we shouldn't want to remember them anyway. Other research points to the simple reason that other things get in the way. We are forward-thinking by nature, so remembering something when we first wake up is difficult.

oh I know this one... sometimes maybe its because your head is full of so much other memories that you just can't remember the things that you actually didn't do... like your dreams. PS: This is also bad because if you can't remember it before you realise what it means, something bad could be heading your way without you actually knowing it.

People tend to remember dreams that occur immediately before awaking. So light sleepers who wake up several times during the night are more likely to remember their dreams than are sound sleepers.

I just want to give A interpretation of when you can't remember your dreams, when you can't remember your dreams it's an indication that you have a short/bad/minuscule memory. it's hard to remember things when you do something a lot.
