CBSC 257 - Sleep and Circadian Rhythms in Health and Disease


Credits: 3

Prerequisite: either CBSC 110 or CBSC 111 and either BIOL 201 or CBSC 250. This course includes elements of lecture and seminar to explore, first, the neurophysiological mechanisms that govern sleep and circadian rhythms and the methods used to measure these phenomena, and, second, the role of dysregulated sleep and circadian rhythms in physical and mental health. The course ends with a discussion of how poor sleep impacts society and how society might confront population-level deficiencies in sleep.
