Café Scientifique

Café Scientifique Manchester

Cafe Scientifique is a place where, for the price of a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, anyone can come to explore the latest ideas in science and technology. Meetings take place in cafes, bars, restaurants and even theatres, but always outside a traditional academic context.

Cafe Scientifique is a forum for debating science issues, not a shop window for science. We are committed to promoting public engagement with science and to making science accountable.

When: 7.30pm on the last Thursday of every month

Where: The MadLab, 36-40 Edge Street, M4 1HN 

Date 28 September 2017
Title Cafe Scientifique - Myth and Science of Sleep
Speaker Professor Graham Law

28 September 2017 at 19:30pm, MadLab, Manchester, M4 1HN

By the age of three, you have slept for at least 10,000 hours which makes you an expert at sleeping. So why is it, with all this expertise, that so many people have difficulty with their sleep? Our society is slowly beginning to recognise the problems we all have with sleep and how this affects our lives, health and wellbeing.

Join sleep scientist Graham Law as he explores the myths that surround sleep: some myths that are informative and helpful, others that are incorrect, and some that are positively damaging and counterproductive.
