Dan Storm: Retaining Memories - the importance of a good night's sleep

2nd October 2008, 19:00 to 21:00, The Scotswood Suite, Centre for Life, Newcastle

We all know that when it comes to decision making that it is important to "sleep on it" and many contracts have a "cooling-off" period to facilitate just that. Well it would appear that sleeping can not only help us think through a decision, but it is also important in the retention of key events as memories we store in our brain. This lecture will explore recent advances in making sense of how important circadian rhythms are in memory retention.

This event commences at 7.00pm with a wine reception and an opportunity to browse around the displays in the Centre for Life. Lecture commences at 7.45pm.

Lectures are FREE and open to all. No need to book - seats are allocated on a first come first served basis
