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.
