In Episode 4 we meet Yvette Graveline of the Cognitive Neuroscience of Thought Laboratory at the University of British Columbia. We talk dreams, imagination, and mind wandering, and how they are all intertwined. What is mind wandering and how often do we do it? Is your imagination different from mine? Should we be analyzing our dreams?
Want to get in touch with Yvette?
Interested in some of the research discussed?
