Beschreibung des Vortrags: We sleep one third of our life, but: why do we sleep? Sleep appears to be a vital function of the brain and essential for life and wellbeing. We know there are bidirectional links between sleep, or lack thereof, and brain disease. What are these links and how do they work? Can we harness the regenerating power of sleep to modify disease processes? We take a look at the current evidence in these topics, with special focus on UZH research.
