Packed Lunch: Insomnia

24 February, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Free

Feed your curiosity as well as your stomach at the Wellcome Collection’s Packed Lunch.

Drop in on your lunch break and listen to scientists in conversation about their latest research, why science matters to all and general life in the lab.

This latest offering is all about insomnia. Most of us will experience insomnia at some point in our lives but we still know very little about sleep regulation. Güliz Özcan’s research explores the implications between sleep disturbances often experienced by people with Alzheimer’s disease. Her work investigates the role of amyloid β, a critical protein in Alzheimer’s, in the sleep-wake cycle. The protein also plays a role in sleep for healthy people too.

Bring your sandwiches and come along to find out what makes us sleepy.
