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!
Dr Jonathan Iliff is a psychiatrist and medical doctor in the NHS, with a background in neuroscience and psychedelic drug research. Jonathan has been an associate researcher with the psychedelic research group attached to King’s College, was the founder and chair of the UCL Society for the Application of Psychedelics and has worked with prominent figures in the field. His research focused on the use of psychedelic compounds, like LSD and psilocybin – the active ingredient in magic mushrooms – a promising new treatment for depression. Today his focus is clinical – focusing on helping with people, and their problems in the here and now.
