Sleep Research at #SfN15: From Molecules and Circuits to Behavior, By Jeremy Borniger

The Society for Neuroscience 2015 annual meeting was rife with research on all aspects of sleep and arousal. Indeed, several symposia and dozens of posters covered topics ranging from the most basic look at the molecules involved in sleep/wake states, to whole network systems. In this post I will cover a small sample of what I found particularly interesting at the meeting (keep in mind, though, that I was not able to get to everything!). A particularly interesting minisymposium was entitled “Disrupted Sleep: From Molecules to Cognition” chaired by Eus Van Someren. A complete summary of all the talks can be found here. Derk-Jan Dijk, from the University of Surrey in the UK presented some very interesting data on what happens to the transcriptional profile of cells in human blood…
