The genetics of sleep: Episode 10

June 28 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

The tenth webinar in The genetics of… series. In this webinar, we will explore sleep as a phenotype, the genetic influences that govern normal circadian rhythm and the molecular mechanisms in disordered sleep patterns. On average we spend 26 years of our lives asleep, but it is not without its complexities. Sleep disorders can cause significant knock-on effects on executive functioning, mental health and memory.

During this webinar you will:

  • Understand the normal sleep pattern, including the different phases and stages that underlie circadian rhythm
  • Learn how molecular factors can determine how we sleep through influencing chronotype
  • Gain insight into the role genetics plays in the development of sleep disorders

Join us on this webinar to find more about how sleep is a cerebral function under strong genetic control. This webinar is in association with the RSM Sleep Medicine Section.

The genetics of… series has been developed following feedback from delegates. Presented by the Medical Genetics section of the Royal Society of Medicine, this series of talks will focus on the role of genetics in different areas of health and well-being.

A CPD certificate with 1 CPD credit will be issued to those joining each webinar live and will be automatically issued after 7 days to those who watched the webinar live in its entirety. Those who watch the webinar on-demand will receive a CPD certificate 30 days after the webinar has gone live.
