Sleep Regulation & Dysregulation: From Molecules to Flies to Man

Sleep Regulation & Dysregulation: From Molecules to Flies to Man

Friday, June 22, 2007

The New York Academy of Sciences

Presented By

Presented by Takeda Pharmaceuticals North America, Inc and The New York Academy of Sciences


Circadian rhythms are governed, not only by external environmental factors, but also by intrinsic physiological regulators. This one-day meeting will examine the biochemical and molecular regulation of the neural networks that control sleep/wake cycles in organisms ranging from flies to man. There will be a focus on how disorders of sleep, such as insomnia, affect us at both the cellular level and at the larger level of the endocrine and metabolic systems.

Scientific Organizing Committee:

Justin Blau, PhD Associate Professor, New York University department of Biology and Center for Neural Science.

Rae Silver, PhD Helene L. and Mark N. Kaplan Professor of Natural and Physical Sciences, Columbia University.
