The myths and science of sleep explored by Prof Graham Law.
Scientific research into sleep has dramatically increased during the past decade, with greater understanding of the hormonal and brain activity during sleep which has a key influence on your health and wellbeing.
Graham Law is Professor of Medical Statistics at the University of Lincoln. He is a sleep scientist with more than 25 years’ research experience. He set up the Sound Asleep Laboratory, which is working towards methods to improve sleep in a way that will have a significant effect on sleep health and wellbeing.
Prof Law’s book “Sleep Better: the science and the myths” is published in June 2017. At the meeting on 27th June there will be an opportunity to buy the book, and have it signed by the author. The book presents evidence-based techniques and mindfulness practices to help improve your sleep. It examines common myths and stereotypes which may damage your chances of sleeping well.
Cafe Sci Leeds was set up to encourage understanding and debate about topical scientific research and issues in an informal setting. Speakers are invited to present a short talk on an area of science in which they have been involved which is then followed by questions and comments.
