Prof Mark Solms, Director of Neuropsychology at the University of Cape Town, spoke on ‘The Neural Mechanisms of Dreaming’.
The Brain Matters Seminar Series is a joint initiative of the University of the Witwatersrand, the Johannesburg Institute for Advanced Study (JIAS), the Southern African Neuroscience Society (SANS), and the Wits Cortex Club.
It explores the past, present and future of neuroscience in southern Africa, with the aim of building a network of researchers dedicated to advancing the field in the region.
The seminars have a multidisciplinary neuroscience focus, and cover topics that are both locally relevant and internationally significant. The first two were held in April and May, and the last two will be held in October and December.
