About the talk

UW research can help you understand the mysteries of the mind and body.

Science is growing increasingly conscious of the value of what happens to people while they’re unconscious. Sleep is strong medicine — it enhances health, improves quality of life, and extends longevity. During this talk, you’ll gain insight into what happens to people’s brains and bodies while they’re in the land of nod. You’ll also learn the relationship between sleep and health, and strategies for optimizing time spent sawing logs.

Snooze, but don’t lose. This event is free, but registration is required.
