Introduction to sleep and dreams [Blockseminar]




This is a block course that will take place at the end of the Winter semester. We will provide more details soon via mail.

The goal in this course is to provide a broad overview of the topics of Sleep and dreams. We will discuss these questions: Why do we sleep? Which sleep stages fulfill which function (for example, memory consolidation)? What are the neurobiological bases of sleep? What happens during sleep deprivation? How is sleep researched? What are the sleep disorders and how do you treat them? How are certain psychopathologies such as depression related to sleep? How is sleep recorded? What technical devices and analysis tools facilitate the study of sleep? Why do we dream? What insights can we gain from lucid dream research for consciousness research? How do certain medications and other substances, or diet and exercise affect sleep?
The format of the course is to be a mix of presentations from the students and lecturers. Also, you will get the chance to learn to measure EEG in the Sleep lab!
