INDEX OF AUTHORS

("Interpretations de Quelques Reves," _Archives de Psychologie_, 

April, 1907) that birds have a sexual significance both in life 

and in dreams. The appearance of male organs in the dream-woman 

is doubtless due to the dreamer's greater familiarity with those 

organs; but, though it occurs occasionally, it can scarcely be 

said to be the rule in erotic dreams. Even men who have never had 

connection with a woman, are quite commonly aware of the presence 

of a woman's sexual organs in their erotic dreams. 

 

Moll's comparison of nocturnal emissions of semen with nocturnal 

incontinence of urine suggests an interesting resemblance, and at 

the same time seeming contrast. In both cases we are concerned 

with viscera which, when overfilled or unduly irritable, 

spasmodically eject their contents during sleep. There is a 

further resemblance which usually becomes clear when, as 

occasionally happens, nocturnal incontinence of urine persists on 

to late childhood or adolescence: both phenomena are frequently 

accompanied by vivid dreams of appropriate character. (See e.g. 

Ries, "Ueber Enuresis Nocturna," _Monatsschrift fuer 

Harnkrankheiten und Sexuelle Hygiene_, 1904; A.P. Buchan, nearly 

a century ago, pointed out the psychic element in the 

experiences of young persons who wetted the bed, _Venus sine 

Concubitu_, 1816, p. 47.) Thus, in one case known to me, a child 

of seven, who occasionally wetted the bed, usually dreamed at the 

same time that she wanted to make water, and was out of doors, 

running to find a suitable spot, which she at last found, and, on 

awaking, discovered that she had wetted the bed; fifteen years 

later she still sometimes had similar dreams, which caused her 

much alarm until, when thoroughly awake, she realized that no 

accident had happened; these later dreams were not the result of 

any actual strong desire to urinate. In another case with which I 

am acquainted, a little girl of eight, after mental excitement or 

indigestible meals, occasionally wetted the bed, dreaming that 

she was frightened by some one running after her, and wetted 

herself in consequence, after the manner of the Ganymede in the 

eagle's clutch, as depicted by Rembrandt. These two cases, it may 

be noted, belong to two quite different types. In the first case, 

the full bladder suggests to imagination the appropriate actions 

for relief, and the bladder actually accepts the imaginative 

solution offered; it is, according to Fiorani's phrase, 

"somnambulism of the bladder." In the other case, there is no 

such somnambulism, but a psychic and nervous disturbance, not 

arising in the bladder at all, irradiates convulsively, and 

whether or not the bladder is overfull, attacks a vesical nervous 

system which is not yet sufficiently well-balanced to withstand 

the inflow of excitement. In children of somewhat nervous 

temperament, manifestations of this kind may occur as an 

occasional accident, up to about the age of seven or eight; and 

thereafter, the nervous control of the bladder having become 

firmly established, they cease to happen, the nervous energy 

required to affect the bladder sufficing to awake the dreamer. In 

very rare cases, however, the phenomenon may still occasionally 

happen, even in adolescence or later, in individuals who are
