Chaos & Complex Systems Seminar
The textual structure of REM dreaming
Date: Tuesday, March 19th
Time: 12:05 pm
Place: 4274 Chamberlin (refreshments will be served)
Speaker: Art Schmaltz, Prairie State College
Abstract: The human brain during REM dreaming is a singular neurological event that may well be the most complex event known to science. As a biologically evolved system, dreaming long predates the evolution of human language.<br>
In this presentation, I will parse out one of the ten lines of evidence that argues that human language evolved &quot;down&quot; from the complexity of dreaming, and not &quot;up&quot; from a simpler biological system.
