Keynote webinar | Spotlight on sleep in brain health

LIVE: Thursday 2nd May 2024, 18:00-19:30 (CEST)

Quality sleep is essential for health. But how does sleep protect our brains and what happens when sleep patterns are disturbed? 

Sleep disruption can occur many years before neurological diseases are detected and can accelerate disease progression. Experts will explore the signs of sleep disruption that you are most likely to see when treating neurological diseases, and the questions that you need to be asking your patients to help you prevent the harmful effects of sleep deprivation.
