Activation synthesis theory, Continual-activation theory, Reverse learning, Dreams as excitations of long-term memory, Dreams for strengthening of semantic memories and …. These are some popular theories about why we dream. Actually there is no exact consensus among researchers about the reason of dreaming but Oneirology, the scientific study of dreams, tells us If a person learns a difficult new task during the day, their measured electrical activities while they are doing them, are replayed exactly by their brain when they sleep that night.
