Why Do We Sleep?
Should I sleep or pull an ‘all-nighter’ before an exam?
Where do dreams come from?
Should I ‘sleep on it’ before making a decision?
Why can’t I sleep?
Professor Rebecca Spencer of the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at UMass, Amherst will shed light on the mystery of sleep. She will discuss what sleep is, what the brain does in various sleep stages, why we sleep, what sleep does for memory and decision-making, and how to get a better night’s sleep.
