Sleep & learning

One of the reasons we sleep is to allow the undisturbed brain to consolidate knowledge we have learned while being awake. We are interested in understanding how interfering with sleep may affect early cognitive development.

SNOOSE (SeNsOry Origin of poor Sleep in Early development) investigates whether the sensory hypersensitivity manifested early in the development of Autism or ADHD interferes with sleep and therefore with knowledge consolidation.

Covid19-CDI study asks how lockdown affected sleep of pre-school children and what impact this has on their cognitive development.

We are funded by the Wellcome Trust and the ESRC.
