About This Episode

People of all ages worry about not getting enough sleep, and yet many don’t mention it as a concern to their doctor. When it comes to brain health, how important IS a good night’s sleep?

In this episode of BrainStorm, host Meryl Comer speaks with Erik K. St. Louis, M.D, M.S., Co-Director of the Center for Sleep Medicine and Director of the Mayo Sleep Behavior and Neurophysiology Research Laboratory, at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. Dr. St. Louis gets down to the basics of the sleep-brain connection and the science behind it.  In part one of our two-part series on sleep, learn why people experience more sleep problems as they and how to measure a good night’s sleep.
