Why do we Sleep? 

 

Presented by Dr Olga Runcie, Consultant Psychiatrist, NHS Tayside 

 

Sleep remains a scientific enigma. It is the only physiological process for which there is a lack of scientific agreement concerning its function. Why do we need to sleep? What happens when we sleep? In this talk Dr Runcie will discuss advances in sleep neurobiology answering questions about sleep functions and mechanisms of sleep and wake control. You will learn how to use this knowledge to improve your sleep.
