Virtual FENS Forum
The mini conference Sleep across the Lifespan is hosted as part of the FENS 2020 Virtual Forum to be held on 11-15 of July 2020, Glasgow, UK. For more information about the FENS 2020 Virtual Forum, please visit: https://forum2020.fens.org/
The importance of sleep for the development and memory and the impact of sleep quality on daytime functioning in infants and children will be covered discussed and up-to-date research will be presented. The conference will also focus on cognitive neuroscience, new sleep circuitries and memory function in adults, before concluding on the importance of sleep and aging, neurodegeneration and sleep-wake regulation in disease.
The content will be brought to you by a multi-disciplinary faculty of basic scientists and clinicians. The mini-conference is organised by the British Sleep Society (BSS) in collaboration with the European Sleep Research Society (ESRS).
Registration to attend the BSS/ ESRS virtual mini conference is free. Please use the link below to register your attendance.
