'Sleep is a pervasive, universal, and fundamental behavior: it occupies a third of our life;
it is present in every animal species where it has been studied; even partial deprivation
of sleep has serious consequences on cognition, mood, and health. All available evidence indicates that sleep is “of the brain, by the brain, and for the brain”. However, despite decades of intensive research, the mechanisms and functions of sleep remain unclear.'

WE ENCOURAGE OUR MEMBERS
to join the national organizations that address their individual concerns. It’s an excellent way to keep up-to-date on recent developments in that field.
