Professor Vince Walsh, UCL

What is sleep and why do we need it? What happens to our mind and body when we are asleep?

UCL's Professor Vince Walsh (Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience) is joined by Professor Russell Foster (University of Oxford) and other sleep experts for an interactive evening of science, art and improvised opera exploring the stuff that dreams are made of. Find out how our body clocks determine the rhythms of life, and what happens when we don’t get enough sleep. Explore the sounds of sleep with the British Library’s resident experts, and sip on some sleep-themed cocktails in this collaborative event hosted by the British Library and UCL Neuroscience.
