Kaitokudo for the 21st Century, Osaka University i-spot Lecture -- The Science of Sleep: Getting Better Rest

2015-3-18 (Wed) 18:30 - 20:00

Osaka University and Osaka City have been working together to provide citizens with small lectures in an "at home" atmosphere. Making use of its wide range of academic fields, Osaka University promotes the sharing of its learning with citizens, thereby contributing to the revitalization of local communities. The themes for these two i-spot lecture series are "Fragility of Today's Society" and "Inquiry into the Subconscious." It's free to attend, so please don't hesitate to join us!

Lecture: "The Science of Sleep: Getting Better Rest," Associate Professor ADACHI Hiroyoshi (Health Center, Osaka University)

Lecture Overview:

In our 24-hour-a-day society, we often see those who must live their lives outside of the natural sleep cycles of human rhythm of life, and also those who choose a lifestyle outside of that rhythm. Lately, we've also seen an increase of media related to sleep. Perhaps too much media, as we are bombarded with a flood of information on the subject while the basic knowledge on sleep remains, quite unfortunately, lacking. In this lecture, we'll take a look at the things you ought to know about sleep and wakefulness, while using that knowledge in practice to improve our sleep health.

This lecture is part of the series entitled "Inquiry into the Subconscious"
