Research seminars 2019-2020

In ad­di­tion to mul­tidiscip­lin­ary sleep research, we aim the education of health care pro­fes­sion­als and stu­dents, which will in­clude a monthly research sem­inar fo­cus­ing on sleep. 

The speak­ers

Christina Schmidt 

Uni­versity of Liége, Bel­gium 
Age-related changes in sleep-wake regulation

Her research explores the involvement of sleep-wake regulation on human cognition. She uses multidimensional approaches combining cognitive methods, neuroimaging, electrophysiology and chronobiological paradigms, mainly in healthy individuals.

Peter Meerlo

Uni­versity of Gronin­gen, Neth­er­lands
Sleep, brain plasticity and memory

His research focuses on the phylogeny and ecology of sleep. He is especially interested in the role of sleep in neuronal plasticity & memory formation, the consequences of restricted/disrupted sleep and the effects of stress on biological clocks and circadian rhythmicity.

Speaker

Professor Barbara Canlon

Karolinska Institutet, Sweden

Barbara Canlon, PhD, is Professor of Hearing Physiology at the Karolinska Institute. She had her MSc degree from Michigan University and did her postdoctoral studies at the Institute Pasteur Paris, with Professor Jean-Pierre Changeux and at the CNRS-INSERM, Montpellier, France, with Professor Joel Bockaert.
Professor Canlon’s research interests include auditory neurobiology, molecular mechanisms underlying hearing loss and identifying innovative protective strategies, and long-term and short-term stress physiology and epidemiology in relation to hearing impairment. She is particularly interested how the circadian system regulates cochlear sensitivity and integrates inflammation and glucocorticoid actions.
