Did you know… many regions of your brain – especially those involved in learning, processing information, and emotion – are more active while you sleep than when you’re awake?

It’s true. These regions work together while you sleep, processing and sorting information from your day.

Notre Dame Professor Jessica Payne’s research tells us sleep hours are valuable to our awake time, for storing information to memory and for problem solving. But you knew this, right?

The more sleep you get, the better your brain works. 

Find out why and how, so you can optimize that all-important sleep time.

Professor Payne’s research focuses on what kind of information is submitted to memory, and in this One Day U event, Professor Payne will outline practical tips on how to control your sleep habits to insure maximum productivity. Learn to make sleep work for you. And sleep is an entertaining topic, with individual nuances and quirks – so come prepared for fun, too.

You’ll be doing more than just sleeping at night, from now on!
