Sleep, Aging, and Alzheimer’s Disease

Our lab investigates the relationship between sleep, aging, and Alzheimer’s disease.  Recent evidence suggests a role for sleep in Alzheimer’s disease pathogenesis and/or as a marker for the onset and/or progression of Alzheimer’s disease that could be followed as an outcome measure in treatment trials.  The major goal of our research is use sleep to prevent or delay Alzheimer’s disease.
