Pictured above are John Tennison, M.D., and J. Allan Hobson, M.D., at the University of Texas Health Science Center, San Antonio on May 17, 2005. Dr. Hobson is a professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. He is well known for his research on human dreaming. Hobson regards the bizarre experiences of dreams and the emotions that accompany dreams of as a sort of normal "psychosis" and "delirium" that we experience every time we dream.
