Day Residues, Recall Residues, and Dreams: Reality and the Psyche

Robert J. Langs, M.D.


I have reviewed Freud's writings and subsequent literature regarding day residues and their relationship to the dream. The subject of recalling forgotten dreams was reviewed, and the concept of the "recall residue" was presented.

Clinical material was presented to illustrate and elaborate upon these hypotheses. The theoretical and clinical implications of these findings were discussed briefly.
