PSYC 4475 Science of Sleep (Fall/Spring: 3 )

Course Description

The average person will sleep more than 20 years in his or her lifetime. What is the brain doing during this altered state of consciousness? In this seminar, we will broadly explore the neuroscience of sleep, including anatomy and physiology, pharmacology, human disease, behavioral and cognitive neuroscience, sleep deprivation, and dreaming. The cognitive neuroscience of sleep, and particularly sleep and cognition, will be emphasized.
