We will have the replay of the video available for 72 hours after the event for those of you that can’t make the new date. It will also be uploaded to YouTube in the future.

SUMMARY
Understanding why we feel a subjective sense of self and how it arises in the brain seems like an impossible task.

In this talk, Mark Solms discusses his new theory of consciousness that returns emotions to the centre of mental life.

Join Mark as he explores the subjective experiences of hundreds of neurological patients, many of whom he treated. Their uncanny conversations help to expose the brain’s obscure reaches.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER
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.
