Sleep and Brain Research Unit

Specialised research facility dedicated to investigating the role of sleep in human health.

The University of East Anglia has a dedicated sleep and brain research unit to study the profound effect sleep has on our bodily functions ranging from the way our genes become expressed, through various physiological processes including cardiovascular function, metabolism and immunity to the way our brain works.


The first study for this unit, funded by the Wellcome Trust, aims to investigate the negative effects on human health that sleep deprivation can cause, specifically looking at how sleep deficits can be prevalent in people with disturbances in brain health such as Dementia.
