POSTDOCTORAL POSITION
SLEEP RESEARCH GROUP

Topic. Sleep‐wake regulation, aging, neuroimaging, cognition, genetics, modeling

Background. Sleep‐wake quality degrades during aging, even during normal aging, and the extent of this degradation is essential not only for current cognitive abilities but also for  future  cognitive  faith.  The  Sleep  Research  Group  wants  to  isolate  brain mechanisms  of  sleep‐wake  regulation  that  are  associated  with  risk  for  age‐related cognitive  decline  which  will  be  estimated  though  modeling  of  individual  geneticprofiles. We will use both existing large datasets of ours as well as novel data acquired during strictly controlled chronobiology protocols. We use a wide variety of approaches including neuropsychological testing, genetics, neurophysiology and neuroimaging.
