TH+ Expert Webinar with Dr Verena Senn: Making sense of dreams and nightmares

Even though we might not remember them, we all dream. Whether you’ve been woken up by a nightmare or find it hard to drag yourself out of a great dream, the way that our brain works when we snooze hugely influences our health.

Although dreams can happen at any time when you’re asleep, scientists often put dreaming down to the four stages of sleep that we all experience nightly. You might have heard of REM and non-REM, but what do they mean?

Dr Verena Senn is here to make sense of the science of sleep. In this expert webinar, she uncovers how important sleep is for our general health. She also explains the four stages of sleep and what they mean for dreams and a good 8 hours.
