About This Event


Event Description:

Join us for Brain Awareness Week and learn how your brain helps you sleep. As humans, we spend about a third of our lives asleep. All known animals sleep, albeit some in different ways. Yet, as pervasive as sleep is, scientists are still unraveling the mystery as to why we need to sleep. During this program, we will discuss the stages of sleep and how our brains regulate sleep. We will also talk about what happens when we do not get enough of it and see how other species manage to doze. From this, we can begin to think about why sleep is so important. There will be time at the end to ask all of your non-sleep brain questions, so please let us know what you are curious to learn more about!
