About the Event

"Do but consider what an excellent thing sleep is...that golden chain that ties health and our bodies together." - Thomas Dekker (1570-1632)  Ah sleep! Despite our best efforts to live without it, it is a fundamental necessity for good health and wellbeing. In light of the recent pandemic, many of us have experienced a decreased quality of sleep. Understandably, this may have affected our daily activities, mental health, and in some cases even dreams.   We are therefore excited to announce an online sleep seminar given by Dr Ivana Rosenzweig!  --------------------------------------------------------------- Summary of the event details:  Location:  Online  Date and time:  3rd September 2020, 5-6:30 pm (UK time)  Speaker:  Dr Ivana Rosenzweig  Discussed topics: - Overview of "normal" sleep mechanisms  - Changes in sleep patterns due to lockdown and isolation during the coronavirus pandemic  - Effects of these changes on dreams?  - Tips to improve sleep quality  --------------------------------------------------------------- Dr Rosenzweig's suggested readings: 1) Principles and Practice of Sleep Medicine by Thomas Roth, Meir H.
