Sleep deprivation does more than just make you reach for a second cup of coffee. It causes specific changes to the brain that impair our ability to function. We have much to learn about the inner workings of our brain, including how lack of sleep affects our memory systems.
Join Jennifer Tudor for a talk about how sleep deprivation affects memory and what that means for child development, aging, and neurodegenerative disorders. She’ll also share some guidelines on best practices for getting better sleep.
