Lauren Whitehurst

Special guest

Dr. Lauren Whitehurst's research explores how the body and the brain interact during sleep to produce regulatory effects on cognition and health. She asks questions about how good sleep and perturbations to sleep (due to drugs, stress/discrimination, etc.) impact our ability to think, learn and remember. Dr. Whitehurst uses experimental methodologies, like electroencephalography, electrical stimulation and pharmacology, to approach these questions.
