The Science of Sleep

Neuroscientist Dr. Allison Brager shares with us what the brain is doing when sleep occurs. There is quite a bit of complexity between different regions of the brain, and they all need to be working together in order for you to fall asleep and stay asleep. In this video, we cover: – The transition from high brain activity to slow-wave activity – The top-down and bottom-up sleep process – Connectivity between the frontal region of the brain and the brain stem – Inhibitory vs. excitatory chemical pathways – What is required to fall asleep and stay asleep
