We spend about a third of our lives sleeping and a significant portion of that time dreaming. Why?
Join TEDxMarin Friday, April 16th, as an A-list set of sleep and dream researchers reveal and discuss how the brain functions during sleep, how to sleep better, and why and how we dream.
Sleep plays a vital role in good health and well-being throughout our life. Proper sleep leads to healthier brain function, emotional well-being, physical health, enhanced work, and physical performance. Good sleep has also been shown to reduce risks for dementia and related memory issues.
And yet unhealthy sleep and sleep deprivation are increasingly linked to heart disease, depression, obesity, and lower life expectancy. More than seventy million suffer from chronic and severe sleep disorders in the United States alone.
Join TEDx Marin to understand exactly how and why our brains dream, what our brain does during sleep, how to minimize chronic sleep disorders, and to how to sleep better every night. We’ll also share the latest perspectives on lucid dreaming, dream engineering, nightmares, and the crucial role of healthy sleep.
This Salon program features five original TEDTalks featuring some of the top researchers in their field, and a Q&A with audience-generated questions.
