Title: Sleep and Bidirectional Changes in Synaptic Plasticity: The Untold Story
Date and Time: Tuesday, November 6, 2018 from 7 p.m. – 8 p.m.
Location: Marriott Marquis La Costa Room Р4th Floor

Welcome to the inaugural Satellite Meeting on sleep and bidirectional changes in synaptic plasticity. Our speakers will present scientific findings and points of view that challenge current paradigms of sleep function. They will show that sleep has diverse effects on synapses that are not easily explained by current theory. Our overall goal is to provide an informal venue for scientists to discuss different ideas about how sleep influences brain plasticity and to foster new collaborative approaches to this problem. Look for us at the 2019 World Sleep Congress in Vancouver!
