Sleep Disorders Journal Club

We invite you to join us for the human sleep disorders journal club. This journal club will take place once a month, and focus on current papers relevant to human sleep disorders (insomnia, sleepwalking, RBD, circadian disorders, narcolepsy, sleep disruption as a result of pain or TBI etc). We invite anyone with these interests to join, and hope to have a diversity of students, researchers and clinicians with different backgrounds in sleep (or other!) for a healthy discussion.

The journal club will be held the 3rd Friday of every month at 14h00.
