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.
The wild nightlife of the auditory system
Unfortunately, regarding limitations to non-essential social events and seminars on the campus because of COVID-19 restrictions, this seminar is cancelled.
Neurogenomics Laboratory (Iiris Hovatta group) and Sleep Team (Tarja Stenberg group) present research results and methods.
Sleep & Mind (Anu-Katriina Pesonen group) and Laboratory of Neurotherapeutics (Tomi Rantamäki group) present research results and methods.
Research Professor Timo Partonen
The Finnish Institute of Health and Welfare (THL)
Influence of light exposure on sleep, mood and circadian rhythms
Changes in seminar programme!
Docent Tarja Stenberg
University of Helsinki, Research Program Unit, Sleepwell program
Sleep and health and the influence of stress, gender and aging
Professor Tea Lallukka
University of Helsinki, Faculty of Medicine
Associations of sleep and health functioning with the premature exit from paid employment: repeated measures latent class analysis
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.
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.
