I sleep, therefore I am


The Wet Lab is hosting a lecture by University of San Diego scientist Indrani Ganguly-Fitzgerald, PhD. The lecture will be held at the San Diego Central Library on Thursday, September 21st, from 6:30 – 7:30pm.

There is little argument that without sleep, we are functional basket cases. However, scientists are still hard at work at trying to dig at the mystery of why we NEED to sleep at all. In this lecture, we will attempt to shed light onto the function of sleep, by diving into the neuro-genetic investigations that reveal a surprising connection between sleep, waking experience, and aging brain health.
