Sleep Science Friday: Sleep and Sports – UEFA recommendations

2 July 2021  Throughout the month of June until mid-July, all of Europe will be closely monitoring the UEFA matches, cheering the teams on, celebrating intermediate wins and getting upset by lost goals.

2 April 2021 Sleep & sleep disorders in popular culture Dear members of the ESRS, Dear colleagues, I think we all share a common interest in the science of sleep and clinical sleep medicine. For my part, I have been active in this field for almost 40 years now. Somehow, my deep interest in the topic has endowed me with a kind of “attentional bias” for all things sleep-related. That is to say, if somewhere the word sleep or any reference to sleep disorders pops up, it captures my attention more than other topics. As I am also an avid and ecclectic reader of many kinds of different books, ranging from Shakespeare´s century to nowadays, and of many different genres, …
