One Day @ UBC: Sleep: Your Other Life

Why do we sleep? How much sleep do we actually need? Why am I having trouble getting to sleep? What is the true impact of sleep deprivation on thinking and behaviour? Why do we sleep walk? These and other questions are addressed in this one-day course that explores the universal state in which we spend one third of our lives.
