BACKGROUND
Insufficient sleep rapidly degrades cognitive function, and sleep deficits are often early symptoms of neurocognitive disorders. Many lines of recent research have advanced our knowledge of both the sleep-dependent mechanisms that maintain cognitive performance, and of core sleep regulatory circuits that might enable better control of sleep/wake cycles. This symposium, organized by the UCLA labs of Jeff Donlea, Chris Colwell, Ketema Paul, and Gina Poe, will discuss recent findings that link sleep with neurocognitive function and advance our understanding of sleep regulation. This ICLM meeting was funded by the Neurobiology Department, and the BRI
SYMPOSIUM
It will take place in the UCLA Medical School Campus (NRB auditorium) on April 6, 2018 and is supported by the Integrative Center for Learning and Memory and Brain Research Institute at UCLA. It will cover topics related to the regulation and neurocognitive functions of sleep, ranging from genetic model systems to clinical populations.
