The Sleep-Deprived Human Brain

There is increased recognition that sleep deprivation interferes with cognition and performance and that it may contribute to brain diseases such as addiction, chronic pain, and Alzheimer’s, among others. This presentation will focus on results from two sets of brain-imaging studies done to investigate the effects of sleep deprivation on the human brain.
