Sleep & the Ageing Brain

Wednesday, February 27th, 2019

Healthy sleep is important throughout the lifespan and becomes more challenging with age. In this public lecture, our guest speakers explored how the brain mediates normal sleep and its importance to health, as well as how normal sleep can be disrupted and change with age and age-related pathologies.

Listen to all the videos of our panel of leading researchers to learn more about the impact of sleep on the ageing brain.
