Bright Nights™ Community Forum: Sleep And Depression: Connections From Adolescence Through Adulthood

Tuesday September 20, 2011: 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room

Are you having trouble getting a good night of rest? Did you know that having depression can affect sleep so significantly that it feels as though you are suffering from permanent jet lag?

Join us as Dr. J. Todd Arnedt, director of the Behavioral Sleep Medicine Program at the U-M Sleep and Chronophysiology Laboratory, presents a brief overview describing how sleep and depression interact. He will also present information on the latest sleep and depression research underway at U-M. This will be followed by a specialist panel discussion.

The Sleep and Chronophysiology Laboratory at the University of Michigan is a research laboratory that investigates sleep and biological rhythm regulation from childhood through adulthood. The laboratory has a strong interest in the biological risk factors for depression, how major depressive disorder affects the sleep of both children and adults, and whether sleep-focused interventions can help to improve depression treatment.
