An Irish proverb says, “A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures in the doctor’s book.”
How true that is! Sleep plays a vital role in both your physical and mental well-being. Just ask Dr. Ravi Allada, the new director of the Michigan Neuroscience Institute (MNI), whose research focus is the science of sleep and the circadian rhythm.
Dr. Eva Feldman sits down with him to discuss why we sleep and how it is actually driven by our internal clock’s sense of our waking experience. They also delve into his work studying the effect of jetlag on professional athletes and his vision for a new era of collaborative neuroscience research across U-M through the MNI.
Afterward, they will be joined by sleep guru (featured in The New York Times, Bloomberg, Time, and many others) Cathy Goldstein, MD, of the University of Michigan’s Sleep Disorders Clinic for a live Q&A.
You might, quite literally, lose sleep if you miss this one! Don’t forget to submit questions for the live Q&A when you register.
