Huffington Sleep Videos

In this post is a sampling of video about Arianna Huffington, her promotion of getting a good night's sleep, and her book, Sleep Revolution.

Videos include a four minute TED talk, an interview at Davos, and a longer presentation at Dominican University.

Sleep science, eye disease, and mental health

In this short video, Oxford University Professor Russell Foster explains that his new findings in neuroscience show that lack of adequate sleep is not just an inconvenience. Sustained sleep disruption or deprivation can now be seen as an early warning system (biomarker) of impending mental illness.

His findings overturn our current ‘knowledge’ that blindness is always associated with a broken sleep/wake circadian system. In fact, our eyes are able to sense light without seeing it. He also discusses how these findings have significant implications for future therapies.
