February 15, 2022: How Poor Sleep Undermines the Socio-Emotional Competence of Youth: Filling in the Gaps
Sleep-wake regulation and emotional processing undergo constant, inter-dependent changes across development and pathways from inadequate sleep in childhood to subsequent affective disorders are particularly robust. Specific emotional and behavioral mechanisms that account for these relationships are poorly understood by comparison. This talk will present findings from several prospective and experimental studies in school-aged children and adolescents aimed at elucidating how early socio-emotional competence undermined when sleep is inadequate.
