Dr. Lauren Whitehurst joins us to talk about the critical role that sleep plays in cognition. The effects of sleep (and sleep loss) are seen in systems that span not only the brain, but the rest of the body, and understanding this can help us understand not only a host of cognitive processes, but encourage us to have good sleep habits. And, importantly, how some people have more freedom over their sleep schedule due to external demands (such as job or family responsibilities). Lots of reasons to prioritize sleep, when we can!
