The panel will be moderated by Allan Tasman, MD, Professor and Chair of the Department of Psychiatry
and Behavioral Sciences and Schwab Endowed Chair at the University of Louisville. He is both a
cognitive neuroscience researcher and a fully trained and certified psychoanalyst. The program will
discuss sleep and dreaming from a broad perspective including the latest neuroscience basis for
understanding sleep physiology and stages of sleep, as well as a focus on the REM stage of sleep

dreams and their meanings, and how this understanding can be used to improve self awareness and as a
