ANTTI REVONSUO is a Finnish cognitive neuroscientist and philosopher of mind. He seeks to understand consciousness as a biological phenomenon and his work focuses on altered states of
consciousness with dreaming in particular. He is well known for his Threat Simulation Theory, which states that dreams serve the biological function of rehearsing possibly threatening situations
in order to aid survival.

FRANSESCA SICLARI is a medical neuroscientist specialized on consciousness in sleep. She seeks to understand consciousness based on dream content and their neural representation in the human
brain. Her work together with Giulio Tononi is best known for describing the first neural correlates of dream experiences in the source reconstructed EEG.
