Sleep and cognitive health: from neural mechanisms to clinical perspectives’

In person seminar in the Blakemore Lecture Theatre, Sherrington Building, DPAG, South Parks Road

Sleep is important for memory consolidation and cognitive performances during the day.
There is increasing evidence that brain oscillations during sleep play a central role in such processes.
This presentation will review recent work from our lab on the interplay between brain rhythms during sleep, memory consolidation and age-related cognitive decline. We will also discuss recent data showing the impact of sleep disturbances on cognitive functions, as well as the effects of non-pharmacological interventions on sleep quality and memory performances.
