Dreams have fascinated scientists for millennia. They are a window to our soul and a narrative that our brain plays for us nightly. Yet, for centuries we were not able to parse their meaning, function and purpose.

In this talk Moran Cerf will discuss his work of penetrating consciousness by accessing dreams and the road paved by understanding out brain.
