Mark Solms explores the mechanisms behind the dreaming brain and what dreams really mean. He discusses where the research on sleep, generated like clockwork by the ‘mindless’ brainstem, stands today.

Mark Solms has spent his entire career investigating the mysteries of consciousness. Best known for identifying the brain mechanisms of dreaming and for bringing psychoanalytic insights into modern neuroscience, he is director of neuropsychology in the Neuroscience Institute of the University of Cape Town, honorary lecturer in neurosurgery at the Royal London Hospital School of Medicine, and an honorary fellow of the American College of Psychiatrists.
