About this Event

Neuroscientists are continuously making new inroads to unravel the mysteries of sleep - an activity that each of us will be doing for approximately one-third of our lives. Research suggests that sleep plays important roles for our brain including the housekeeping function of clearing toxins from our brain that are build up while we’re awake and memory consolidation.

Join an expert panel of scientists and advocates to learn more about the biological basis of sleep, its impact on brain health across the lifespan, and practical tips to improve your sleep quality – beginning tonight!
