As the world moves towards a 24/7 society, many people get to lead irregular lives away from humans' innate life rhythm due to optical environment independent of day or night. This situation makes them prone to decreased quality of sleep. A long-term loss or lack of sleep causes mental and physical troubles. This course will give you the basic knowledge about sleep and wakefulness you should know. The organizers hope this course will improve your quality of sleep.
