Laboratory Description:

The Brain and Sleep Research Laboratory is a joint effort of Luisa de Vivo and Michele Bellesi to investigate the biological mechanisms underpinning the functions of sleep in health and disease.

Our research combines morphological and functional methods of analysis in both animals and humans.​

The laboratory investigates three main topics: the biological mechanisms regulating sleep, the negative consequences of sleep loss, and the potential therapeutic use of sleep
