In this talk, I will present the latest research leveraging the combination of EEG and MRI techniques to investigate the role that sleep plays in the formation of newly acquired memory, and also, the neural basis for the relationship between human intelligence and sleep.
About the Speaker
Dr. Stuart Fogel is a cognitive neuroscientist at the University of Ottawa and Director of sleep neuroscience at the Royal’s Institute for Mental Health Research. His research focusses on the function of sleep for learning, memory and cognition. He helped lead the discovery that bursts of brain activity during sleep are associated with overnight enhancement of newly formed memory, and are an electrophysiological marker of intellectual abilities. He has published highly cited peer-reviewed papers in high-impact journals, and has given dozens of talks about his research around the world where he advocates for the importance of sleep to support good physical and mental health.
