York Wellbeing Lectures
Across a lifetime, the average person will spend 236,987 hours asleep. Why do we devote so much time to sleep? What happens when we deprive ourselves of sleep? How can we make our sleep more efficient?
In this talk we will delve into the overwhelming benefits of obtaining an adequate amount of sleep ─ and the devastating consequences of skipping sleep ─ for our cognitive and emotional wellbeing. We will also explore emerging methodological tools designed to boost sleep’s remarkable powers, and consider the marvelous implications of these tools for health, education, and psychiatry.
