Poor sleep costs Canadians $21.4 billions annually

Poor sleep reduces physical activity, increases the risk of cognitive decline and dementia, stroke, obesity, cardiovascular disease, mortality. Maintaining an optimal sleep quality is essential to maintain cognitive functions such as memory.

In the Memory Lab we study mechanistic interactions between sleep, lack of sleep, neuroplasticity and memory. We also explore how exercise can improve sleep quality and architecture.
