The Neuroscience of Sleep

The SomneuroLab at UMass Amherst is housed in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences and is an affiliate of the Neuroscience and Behavior Program


Research in our lab broadly explores a range of questions pertaining to sleep measurement and function. In particular, we are interested in neural processing during sleep and how such processing affects daytime cognition. We use a variety of techniques to explore how the brain learns cognitive and motor tasks, and how brain function and learning change over sleep.
