Our main interests consists in the exploration of brain mechanisms underlying sleep-wake regulation and its impact on cognition through neuroimaging techniques. We also focus on clinical neurology issues such as multiple sclerosis and glioblastoma.
An ERC grant to understand the impact of sleep-wake cycles on our cognitive aging
Christina Schmidt, a researcher at the Cyclotron Research Center and PsyNCog Research Unit, has just been selected to receive an ERC Starting Grant from the European Research Council. This grant (around 1.5 million Euros), was awarded to pursue research that explores the link between circadian regulation of the sleep-wake cycle and cognitive aging (COGNAP).
