Chasing Consciousness Series #8 at Rubin Museum of Art: “Waking Up to Dreaming: What Sleep Can Teach Us about Consciousness”

Please join us for our FREE public dialogue this Friday, November 18th, 5PM at at the Rubin Museum of Art!
Sleep and dreams are often thought of as passive disengagement from reality. However, there is a variety of conscious experiences that are possible during sleep. One example is lucid dreaming, when it is possible to know that you are dreaming and to control the dream experience to some extent. Dreaming has also been thought of as a process by which the sleeping mind makes sense of waking experiences. Please join mind scientist Liza Solomonova (Dream and Nightmare Laboratory, University of Montreal) as she examines some of the phenomena of consciousness in sleep and a possible role for sleep and dreaming in self-awareness and insight. This dialogue will be moderated by Dr. Niko Schiff (Brain Mind Research Institute, Weill Cornell). RSVP here!
