10.17.23 | How Maternal Circadian Disruption Impacts Sleep and PFC function in Adult Offspring
Live Webinar ~ 12:00 - 1:00 PM EST
Sleep and circadian (daily) rhythms impact nearly all aspects of physiology. As such, perturbations in sleep and deviations from natural light/dark cycles influence epigenetic, cellular, and behavioral processes. The prefrontal cortex (PFC) regulates stress, fear responses, cognition, and learning and memory. The PFC undergoes significant development in utero and early life, and environmental disturbances during this period can have significant long-term ramifications. Here we use a model of maternal circadian disruption to determine how maternal environment modulates sleep and neural function in adult offspring.
After participation in this session the learner should be better able to:
Identify early life models of circadian disruption
Understand non-invasive sleep measurement studies
Describe how early life circadian disruption may impact neural function at the transcriptomic and physiological level
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University and the COBRE Center for Sleep and Circadian Rhythms in Child and Adolescent Mental Health. The Warren Alpert Medical School is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education.
