SUMMARY

Sleep is vital to our wellbeing. The stages of deep and dreamless slow wave sleep and vivid dreaming REM sleep both have important traits. They each have their role to play in cleaning, up, putting away, and integrating new items into our knowledge schema after the wild party that is waking in our brains

Join Gina Poe as she explores the recent discoveries of how sleep serves to alter our brains and how the brain waves and neurotransmitters are timed perfectly to deliver the right information into the right circuits at the right time.

In this talk, Gina discusses how even slight perturbations of this exquisitely tuned system lead to developmental disorders, mental health syndromes and aging deficits. Followed by some possible ways to make sleep more efficient or to optimize these cognitive, emotional, and developmental processes for a better life.

SPEAKER:

Prof Gina Poe has been working since 1995 on the mechanisms through which sleep serves memory consolidation and restructuring.

Gina is a southern California native who graduated from Stanford University then worked for two post-baccalaureate years at the VA researching Air Force Test Pilots’ brainwave signatures under high-G manoeuvres. She then earned her PhD in Basic Sleep in the Neuroscience Interdepartmental Program at UCLA under the guidance of Ronald Harper then moved to the University of Arizona for her postdoctoral studies with Carol Barnes and Bruce McNaughtons looking at graceful degradation of hippocampal function in aged rats as well as hippocampal coding in a 3-D maze navigated in the 1998 space shuttle mission.
