Medical Physiology Refresher Course: Sleep Physiology and Sleep Disorders (Sponsored by ADInstruments)

Refresher Course — Friday, April 23, 2021 — 11:00 AM - 3:00 PM — Virtual Session, Room Zoom URL TBA
Education Committee — Chair: John James Durocher — Co-Chair: R. Brooks Robey

The purpose of this refresher course is to provide content updates on sleep physiology and sleep disorders. Lectures will provide a brief review of genetics, genomics, metabolism, the autonomic nervous system, and the respiratory system. Lectures will focus on how disruption of sleep and circadian rhythms can alter health from the chemical through organismal levels. Our experts will also cover therapeutic strategies for sleep disruption and sleep disorders.   

This course will be held outside the EB 2021 Virtual Meeting platform and will be free for all however you must register. URL to be provided.
