The Neuroscience of Body Clocks (Virtual Event)

External Event - 23rd May 2018

This virtual event will explore the neuroscience underpinning the daily rhythms of the brain. Specifically, the event will focus on the neurobiology of circadian rhythms, our 24-hour sleep/wake cycle. 

This events takes place on the 23rd of May 2018.

Leading researchers will discuss their work investigating the neural circuitry that wakes us up in the morning and puts us to sleep at night. A cycle that is fundamental to health, well-being and survival. The science discussed at this virtual event will explore circadian rhythms from molecules to behaviour. Whether you are a morning lark or a night owl, you will want to attend this event. 

Attend this Virtual Event to:

  • Learn about the latest findings in circadian rhythm research
  • Understand how cutting-edge technologies are being used to explore circadian rhythms in the brain
