Sleep Rhythms: And the Beat Goes On

Sound Brain Fitness Series

Your brain is a grey, wet, squishy pattern seeking machine.  From daily changes in light to microsecond scale responses to music and voices, your brain runs on and generates the rhythms of your life.  And because we are so rhythmocentric at such a basic level, events that violate your normal rhythms often have serious impacts on us.  The field of chronobiology examines how the timing of environmental and internal events affects our cognition, our health and our daily life, whether it’s transient like focusing on a task or longer term like getting enough sleep.

Next week is National Sleep Awareness Week 2013. To kick it off I’ve invited neuroscientist and author Dr. Seth Horowitz back as my guest for another episode of the Sound Brain Fitness teleseminar series. Please join us for this free teleseminar on Monday evening, March 4th at 8 pm eastern for what is sure to be an engaging hour as we explore:

  • Rhythms of the environment and how they affect the rhythms of the brain
  • Rhythms and patterns of sleep – where they come from and what they do.
  • Interrupted sleep patterns – the consequences of insomnia, disruption, and EDS
  • Weapons of choice – tools for resetting the sleep clock and their side effects
  • Why an auditory sleep aid may be right for you

I hope you’ll listen. You can register here.

    My situation doesn’t allow joining this (online time constraints etc.) but I’m really curious as to whether a concern of mine will be addressed: the Lark-Owl Spectrum. I have documentation of my life-long extreme Owlness, which is quite a problem in a society that insists on forcing everyone into being a Lark – mostly to satisfy the desires of the Business World for a workforce all “on the same schedule”. Isolation with a BI will likely strengthen such a physiological state.
