Researchers at New York University and Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University have discovered new ways neurons work together to ease the transition between sleep and wakefulness. Their findings, which appear in the journal Neuron, provide additional insights into sleep-wake patterns and offer methods to explore what may disrupt them. Associate Professor, Justin Blau, was a co-author on the study, which was also featured on pages 16-17 of the NYU Research Digest Magazine. The study was also featured in a NYU Press Release, NYU Biologists Uncover Dynamic Between Biological Clock and Neuronal Activity.
