SRS Announces Second Webinar for April 29

Sleep Research Society
Thursday, March 6, 2008

Join Clifford Saper, MD, PhD, for Hypothalamic regulation of sleep and circadian rhythms, the second in the new Basics of Sleep Webinar series. This 60 minute online session addresses the neuronal systems that control sleep and wakefulness; the flip-flop switch model for wake-sleep state switching; the role of orexin neurons in regulating the wake-sleep switch; how the circadian signal from the suprachiasmatic nucleus acts on the wake-sleep switch; and recent data indicating that under certain circumstances, a second circadian clock may be turned on that supercedes the suprachiasmatic nucleus, and can rapidly adjust wake-sleep cycles. This online session is set for Tuesday, April 29, 2008, at 12:00 p.m. CT. Information on registration for this Webinar will be available at the SRS Web site in the next two weeks.
