Learning and sleep: a network dynamic approach


  • Prof Miles Whittington

    University of York

Project summary

Professor Whittington aims to explore the neural brain rhythms associated with sleep and how these may relate to both learning and memory, as well as the pathologies associated with neurological and psychiatric illness. A key question that Professor Whittington will address is how disrupted network dynamics during sleep contribute to learning disability. He will achieve this by combining a variety of techniques from the microscopic to the macroscopic level.
