Anne Silk Lecture: Sleep and circadian rhythms: basic science to clinical application
Please note that for mobiles we stream the presentation slides and audio of the speaker.
Professor Foster delivers a talk on sleep and circadian rhythms, from basic science to clinical application. Professor Foster offers an introduction to 24-hour circadian rhythms and how the cultural perception of sleep has changed over time, before exploring the neuroscience of sleep.
Professor Foster also delves in to the connected realms of sleep disruption, the eye and eye disease, and mental illness to draw a clear picture of the overlapping brain pathways and mechanisms that contribute to sleep and circadian rhythms.
This was the RSM's annual Anne Silk Lecture. It was held at The Royal Society of Medicine in London.
Date of lecture: 5th May 2015
