Sleep is maximally expressed at ages when the brain undergoes dramatic changes in its circuitry based on innate programs and in response to experience during critical periods. This suggests that sleep may play essential roles in normal brain development. In this presentation, I will summarize several findings that demonstrate that sleep indeed is essential for canonical forms of developmental plasticity. I will also show that on a genomic level, the impact of sleep
loss on the brain also changes during perinatal development.
After participating in this activity, attendees should be better able to:
- Describe how sleep influences developmental brain plasticity
- Outline ontogenetic changes in sleep regulation
