Postponed | Sleep Feature Constants and Changes Across the Lifespan
Live Webinar ~ 12:00 - 1:00 PM EST

Some things never change while others do. Sleep features that do change across the lifespan and with diseases and disorders hint at the functions of these features. We will discuss evidence produced in my lab and many others that supports functions for each feature (e.g. spindles, theta, and neurotransmitter milieus) for development and remodeling of cognitive schema as we experience and learn to interpret and react to the world around us. We will look across species, ages, sexes, and disorders to flush out principles and features that may be strong enough to benchmark as biomarkers and translate into treatments.
After participation in this session the learner should be better able to:
Identify the three sleep states essential to memory consolidation
Describe three or more electrophysiological features unique to sleep that function to transfer, solidify, integrate, and refresh memory schema
State how the presence or absence of three key neurotransmitters in combinations unique to different sleep activity patterns are key to memory consolidation
Review how aberrations in the generators of electrophysiological and neurochemical milieus of sleep could contribute to or generate learning and memory disorders such as those associated with PTSD, Alzheimer’s, and Schizophrenia.
