Join us while we take a closer look at what happens to the brain while we sleep + the meaning behind our dreams. Followed by Q+A.
Humans have studied and interpreted dreams for many centuries. Have you ever woken up after a crazy dream convinced it means something? Or spent hours wondering why your mind comes up with such ludicrous fantasies? In this engaging talk from NHS psychiatrist and neuroscientist Dr Jonathan Iliff, you will learn what science has to say on the matter! Jonathan will explain the current theories on how and why we dream, what goes on in our brain during sleep and how you can enhance your dreams!
