TED Talks at Seymour - “Sleep is Your Superpower”

Monday, October 21, 2019

What are TED Talks? TED stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design. TED is owned by a non-profit, non-partisan foundation. Its agenda is to make great ideas accessible and spark conversation. Topics are created and made available for use by TED. Join us as we dive into TED Talks at Seymour including a 15 minute video/talk and follow up discussions. Min: 10/Max: 82. Sleep is your life-support and Mother Nature's best effort yet at immortality, says sleep scientist Matt Walker. In this deep science of slumber, Walker shares the good things that happen when you get sleep -- and the alarmingly bad things when you don't - for both your brain and body. Learn more about sleep's impact on your learning, memory, immune system and even your genetic code -- as well as some helpful tips for getting some shut-eye. Facilitator: Emily Gordon
