Sleep and Cognition Advanced Course in Siena, Tuscany (Italy)

July 8 – 15, 2017 in Siena, Italy.

This Advanced Course will cut across multiple fields of sleep studies and will address important emerging areas. Emphasis will be placed on cutting-edge methods and hypotheses for understanding sleep and its effects on cognitive functions, and on how neurophysiological/genetic/imaging approaches can shed light on the functions of sleep and its essential role in maintaining and preserving vigilance, performance, learning and memory. It will be an interactive, multidisciplinary forum in which participants will discard outdated notions, gain an appreciation for the latest thinking, and develop insights that will help navigate the complexity of sleep research.
